Hi

I’m looking for something similar to this in the backtester.

I am able to create a script that gives me a setup bar. Instead of entering on the next open, or the close of the signal day, I would prefer to enter as soon as the next bar breaks the high of the setup bar (for long entry). And if that next bar fails to break the high, I would like to delete the pending trade.

Is it possible to simulate this through the backtester?

Thanks
Steve
