Enters a short position on the next open if it is lower than or equal to the specified price. This function is generally used by an Entry Block to initiate a position.



broker.EnterShortOnStopOpen( stopPrice [, protectStopPrice] )





Stop order price


Value of the protect Exit Stop price to be used in case the market goes against the position (optional parameter when a protective exit price isn't wanted for the bar of entry).



When a broker function succeeds it will place a True in the system.orderExists() and when it fails to this property will return a False.  Before attempting to access any order information expected from a broker order, consider checking to confirm an order was created with a conditional statement similar to this:

  '  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  '  When New Order is Created,...
  If system.OrderExists() THEN
    '  Apply Order Detail To Trade Information
    order.SetRuleLabel( sRuleLabel)
    '  Apply Order Details To Order Information
    order.SetOrderReportMessage( sRuleLabel)
  ENDIF '  s.OrderExists
  '  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



' Enter the market on the next open if at or below the entry price.
broker.EnterShortOnStopOpen( entryPrice, protectStopPrice )




' Enter the market on the next open if at or below entry price with no stop
broker.EnterShortOnStopOpen( entryPrice )
