Stop-loss/Stop-gain

I was wondering how to add a stop-loss/stop-gain to this algorthim. I took a shot at it but, it doesn't seem to be working. Any help would be much appreciated. 

Thanks,

Ken

Hi Ken.

The tutorial section on Tracking and Managing Orders covers some of the basics of Stop Market Order and Stop Limit Order. I encourage you to go through the tutorial as well as completing the Boot Camp Courses.

I've attached a backtest where I've demonstrated how to put on a market order while simultaneously putting on market sell limit order, for profit-taking, and also market stop loss order, to cut losses.
