Hi all, I am experiencing issues with stop loss signals for long positions (no problem with the short side).

In particular:
- stop loss is not applied in the backtest
- in the alerts page long stop losses signals have price = 0

The strangeness is that I didn't modify my code.

Any suggestion?

Thank you

Position.AllPositions is not meant for returning EntryPrice and the code does not make sense. Could you clarify what exactly are you trying to do?

the original code was:

It works properly.

Tip:
Call PlotStops() just once anywhere in the script to visualize the limit and stop order prices on the chart. You have to look closely though, the dots are pretty small!
