Algorithm won't start trading until april 2018

hi can anyoen review my backtest and tell me why my algo doesn't start trading until april 2018?

Update Backtest








I would advise you to log the values in the conditional statements.
Perhaps the thresholds of the spreads are too narrow. What if you replace <= for >= ?

conditions were true starting january 1st unless i'm just tired. need a second pair of eyes. 

if price is greater than usdsgdema then BUy if price is less than usdsgdema then SELL. as you can see in the logs, the indicator was warm and the condition was true. but no trades executed for a couple months. am i missing something or is this a bug?

What about sgdSpread and usdSpread?

self.Log(f'sgdSpread and usdSpread: {sgdSpread and usdSpread}')
self.Log(f'price >= self.usdsgdEMA.Current.Value * (1 + tolerance): {price >= self.usdsgdEMA.Current.Value * (1 + tolerance)}')
self.Log(f'not (self.Portfolio["NZDSGD"].IsShort and self.Portfolio["NZDUSD"].IsLong): {not (self.Portfolio["NZDSGD"].IsShort and self.Portfolio["NZDUSD"].IsLong)}')
self.Log(f'price <= self.usdsgdEMA.Current.Value * (1 - tolerance): {price <= self.usdsgdEMA.Current.Value * (1 - tolerance)}')
self.Log(f'not (self.Portfolio["NZDSGD"].IsLong and self.Portfolio["NZDUSD"].IsShort): {not (self.Portfolio["NZDSGD"].IsLong and self.Portfolio["NZDUSD"].IsShort)}')
