The _Single StopOrLim En strategy will generate a future order at a specified date and/or time. You may indicate the specific criteria of the entry (long or short, stop or limit, stop or limit price, number of shares, date and/or time), as well as whether the order is good-till-canceled or good for the rest of the day only.

The strategy will indicate the order when the bar with the matching date and/or time is generated. If the trigger price is not met in an appropriate manner (stop or limit), the trade may not be generated.

This strategy will only work on charts using an Intra-day or Daily bar interval.
