Hiya,



I tried taking long and short positions in Market Replay trading on a historical close opposite trade. It's not possible to do this basic trading method and I don't know how to fix this, please help? e.g. EUR/USD 1mio Long and then taking EUR/USD 0.5mio Short, closes the half of 1mio EUR/USD Long and I end up having only 0.5mio EUR/USD Long, hoe shall I fix this, please help?


Tnx and best of luck 😇

Hi Blonde,

Most brokers won't let you take a long position and a short position on the same contract at the same time. Even though you switched to a different time frame, you were still on the same contract. Therefore, your short will always close your long in the situation you described.

And these just were in alphabetical order. There are many more out there that allow Hedging as taking Long and Short on the same Forex pair at the same time.

I can't do algorithmic trading on Motivewave-Ultimate unless this issue is fixed on Market replay trading and Walkforward demo or live trading in all?


Tnx and best of luck 😇
