Trades not executing when live

Postby mikeinvaldosta » Tue Jan 10, 2017 8:20 pm

I have a strategy that works fine in back-testing but fails to execute trades are alerts when applied in Marketscope. I have "allowed trading" set to yes.

Is there a frequent mistake that allows backtesting to work but live trading to fail? I am not receiving any log messages other than "strategy is started".

My strategy does involve a 500 period bar. I thought it may wait for 500 periods prior to kick off as it does in backtesting (although I don't think it should) or 200 bars plus the original 300 that load automatically.

I use a custom indicator that requires the same 500 bars. The indicator will not load until a scroll back to load the additional 200 bars. If the indicator begins to work after scrolling back, why wouldn't the strategy?

Thanks for any assistance!
