Hi Kim,

I can’t think of an easy way using a Show Bar because every time there’s a new entry the time count starts again. However, in the Backtester you can set the Max Hold Days to 31 calendar days (ie approx 22 trading days) so the trade will be automatically exited if the signal isn’t hit before then:

You may also be interested in our quantitative Signal Testing add-on module which takes entry signals and shows the average performance over time. The Trade Tester component also allows you to add an exit signal. For more details (including videos) please see here:
