Eugeni,

I didn't find the "buy at close" Rule-based strategies (Blocks), similar to WL6.
Today is it possible?

At the moment we're not including them in Blocks but code-based strategies are enabled with MarketClose orders. Order execution at close is not something easy to achieve, especially intraday (where it just doesn't make any sense because a market order is one tick away).

WL7 doesn't show you the partial daily bar (unless you're using a streaming chart or streaming bars in Strategy Monitor). So, even the awkward workaround of running a strategy prior to the market close as in WL6 with Yahoo provider is not supported.

Rodrigo,

You could make WL6 buy at close on the same bar with Rules. The backtester in WL7 works differently so this is no longer possible. Using at close orders implies a code based strategy and peeking ahead at the next bar.
