Hi, is there any way to use the Building Blocks so that I can link multiple condition blocks with or?

Example:



In C# coding, it is represented this way with multiple AND links.



Basically I would have already an idea in C# how I can use conditions so that these are possible with an OR.

But I would like to know if this is also possible with the building blocks in the design surface.

Regards Christian

Hi Christian,
It's a FAQ: "I'm building a strategy from Blocks and missing OR Divider"

Yes I found it but these are not the correct solution...

It's not gone, just different. Option 1: Drop another Entry/Exit block with another condition to be OR'd. Option 2: Use a Multi-Condition Group and set At least N Condition(s) True to '1'. For more info, see Building Blocks > Building Block Rules in the Help Guide.

OPTION 2 is not possible when you have 2 necessary conditions as true in every block.
OPTION 1 opens two orders when the both conditions in another Entry/Exit block is also true.

So for my understand, the only possibility is the C# coding which is fine for me and the easiest way also.

Regards Christian

Yes, you're right. I'm not sure if it's possible, but this case is a good argument to bring back the OR Divider... or maybe even an elegant new ConditionBuildingBlock AND/OR property that could just be checked to make it an OR.

Is "Or" an option in building blocks? For example, Is it possible to code a strategy that enters when the Close is above the 50 day SMA "Or" the 200 day SMA?

You can use a Multi-Condition Group and say 1 of 2 Conditions are true.

Multi-Condition takes care of most "OR" applications, but not the one in Post #1.

We'd need a M-C of an M-C, which probably won't happen.

I was addressing Moptop specifically. Originally, he had posted this in a standalone thread, but Eugene combined them, somewhat confusing the conversation.

Is the condition therefore achievable?
I created an example branch that could be achieved with the "or" conditions.
And why not also add “flex”, I’ll leave you with this article to understand how it works.

The flex here looks like it is similar to our Qualifier concept, and we have a Qualifier that is "for N Consecutive Bars" that looks like it would match this one.

But no, a Block Strategy like this isn't achievable in WL8 until we implement this #FeatureRequest.

Yes, we can find an alternative with multi-condition group.
However here I checked "muss pass in order" which means that it will respect the order of the conditions. While multi-conditions do not respect the order.
In a way, “flex” would simply be the integration of respect for order.

In my example, I make my stochastic take the form of a pullback + breakout of the neutrality zone.

Looks like Build 62 is turning into a "non-trivial" update. We just activated this for development. On top of that, you'll be able to nest Multi-Conditions Groups. So, the Building Block designer is getting a level up in flexibility.

Here's how you'll implement the original strategy once Build 62 is released.
