KENNETH ZERVOS started following Live Orders sometimes do not appear on the chart!!
I have been working with automated charts for about ten years now, with TradeStation's EasyLanguage. I don't do the programming, but I pay somoeone to do the work for me. I have had well over one-hundred strategies created over the years, and several hundreds of different versions of the strategies. I often trade live; the US equities market. An old strange problem that I used to experience on rare occasions just re-surfaced today; when I am trading live, and the entry order does not show up on the chart at all (I always check both boxes for fully automated trading (no confirmation necessary). When I click off the live trading, the trade suddenly appears where it should on the chart, but the live orders were not sent, so it obviously does me no good. To make matters worse, the only time that this strange thing seems to happens is on the REALLY profitable trades! I am using one-minute time frames, and my chart is set up for 10 days. When I use this setting with backtesting, all of the trades show up. If anyone could please help me with this very frustrating issue, you would be a "lifesaver"! Thank you very much.
