Hey, folks, when I make a backtest entry as follows:

set{entry,open is less than close 1 day ago}
entry


Without the box checked I get 700 or so entries but with the box checked I get no entries, that is, the box that says not to enter if the criteria is not met the next day. I'm obviously doing some thing wrong. If, instead of using the term "close 1 day ago" I just use the term "close" I'm actually referring to the close of the day of the entry?

I wonder if there is a new bug. I have used open < close yesterday with success but it doesn't seem to work now.

I think I've used (price below pp yesterday) I have deleted those backtests by now but at the time I was checking the PP and the backtest seemed to be doing it correctly. Are you saying this should not work?

So I can't indicate a price less than or greater than, just a specific price?

wantonellis...........Thanks for the information very helpful. Is there any way to code for exit below the trigger candle, since so many traders use that strategy?
