when trading blox backtests on a FX system do you have to put in the leverage you want to use or does it do it automatically?

Limit Up Days

Hi, I am new to mechanical trading and was wondering whether someone could tell how to handle limit up days? in other words, if i get a buy signal and the market has gone limit up, do i buy the next day, ignore that trade or put a bid in below the market and wait and see if i get taken?
