can any one tell me the proper syntax for ......... Entry price below close of trigger date
Exit price below low of trigger date

is this possible on the backtest?

Thanks wantonellis... but that didn't seem to work either, it brought 0 trades when I know several stocks crossed below the trigger date close the next day.

The closest I can get so far is to enter at yesterdays close but that is not a true test either.

close 1 day ago * 0.99

wouldn't this work as a conditional entry?
