Exits the specified unit for the current instrument on the next close. This function is generally used by an Exit Block to lighten up a position.

 

Syntax:

broker.ExitUnitOnClose( unitNumber )

 

Parameter:

Description:

unitNumber

Unit number to exit on next trade day close.

 

Returns:

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
  '  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Example:

' Exit the first unit on the next close.
broker.ExitUnitOnClose( 1 )
