All the Trading Blox script sections are listed in this table.  Each script section provides execution that is timed to provide access to data at a specific phase of the Simulation Loop processing.  Some script sections are only executed under specific circumstances and when called by other scripts or functions.

 

For example, Exit Orders, and Adjust Stops are only executed when there the instrument.position property shows a Long or a Short position is active. Before Instrument Day and After Instrument Day scripts are only executed when there is a data record available for the date being processed.  See Blox Script Timing for more information about script timing.
