In response to another feedback the PQ team explained that the system determines whether entry/exit conditions are met AT CLOSE. That makes perfect sense for many triggers but, as I understand it, it also applies to “bar opens above/below…”. To explain if a bar of a strat operating on a 1 hour trading frequency opens above/below a line at 7am this will be checked, together with other triggers, and a trade entered at 8am by which time the price may have changed considerably. Due to the nature of markets sometimes that change is in your favour and sometimes it’s against you. If both entry and exit use this type of trigger that will happen for both entry and exit. Whether a strategy that uses that trigger is profitable or not feels more than a bit random as a result.
