TIF error


Recommended Posts

I get following error when switching from default TIF through conditional/var.

Saved Order Error: There is an error in XML document (1, 216). Instance validation error: 'gTIF' is not a valid value for global::MT.Trading.OrderTimeInForce.


 "Condition": "RegSession=false",
      "Then": {       
        "gTIF": "Day_ext"


I am this as global conditional because second/third legs don't use trading default TIF on chart except for first leg.

1. you see those red underlines for the StopPrice and LimitPrice on the second and third leg? They are there for a reason.

Instead of bead(2) you should do offset(bead(2)-bead(1))   .. same for 3.

2. you set nTIF in variables but I don't see it used anywhere. You said you have some global var set - do you use it in this order?

Sorry, I forgot I had deleted TIF field before exporting hotkey. The problem with TIF assignment through variable persists in any hotkey. Something as simple as following:


  "Vars": {
    "nTIF": "Day_Ext",
    "If": []
  "Command": {
    "Disabled": false,
    "Order": {
      "Drop": "true",
      "Send": "false",
      "ConditionalType": "None",
      "Legs": [
          "OrderType": "Limit",
          "Action": "Buy",
          "LimitPrice": "Mid",
          "TIF": "nTIF"

Yes, I have the link for download, otherwise whatever MT suggests is latest beta available to install.

I was using 9485.300, I just updated to 9485.305.

TIF issue is fixed. Thank you.

Beads price editor is now working as well.

Beads are still forgotten when symbol is changed and changed back.

Hi, Thanks for update. I installed 307. Bead prices now show on all charts of same symbol with trading enabled.

But changing symbol on chart still clears them permanently.

I have both checkboxes on for trade beads under Trading/General. Is Save between session refer to Chart session or trading day session?

Thank you Mike for the fix.

I had turned up to 120 days to test new CPU and data feed. Faster CPU improved performance enough for to me forget about the setting. I don't need that much data all the time. But once in a while for a single symbol, I go back longer period.
