Is this what you are looking for? Something that gives a Signal one bar before execution?
(http://tempuri.org/tempuri.html) - Link invalid - outdated.

The Ribbon has info, but only at the point in time that the parameters are met. The EA gives signal one day ahead of time.

Actually, The expert advisor has the ability to show at least 3 different systems on the same chart!

In the ribbon, you can show long, short, and neutral positions from system1.
In the Highlights , you can also show long, short ,and neutral positions from system2.
in the symbol ,you can show individual symbols and events occuring on the bar of the actual event from system3.
If you really want to you could set a 4th system just using the alerts, but they would not show up as signals on the chart.

It's all in the way you write your systems!In both the highlights and symbol tabs, you have to be aware of the precedence of your signal, the higher the priority the first to fire!

After applying my EA, the expert symbol will appear on one of the day candles. However I need to push this symbol back one day. Tried Ref(EA formula,-1) but did not work. Any suggestions? Thank you all

If you use a system that is +1 for long,-1 for short and 0 for neutral,The signal bar of the actual event would be sig=1 and Ref(Sig,-1)<>1 any earlier ref function would show up as 0 because the event has not yet happened.

Hi Henry

Thanks for your help. My EA code is:

Ref( Fml( "ABC"),-2)<Ref( Fml( "ABC"),-1) AND (Ref( Fml( "ABC"),-1)>

Fml( " ABC ") ) AND Ref(Fml( " ABC "),-2)>0 AND Ref(Fml( " ABC "),-1)>0

AND Fml( " ABC ")>0

Need to push the Expert Symbol backward one day. Any ideas? Thanks again

A system signal should be a binary output IE:=+1,-1,0.

There are several ways to do this

Long:=C>Mov(C,50,S);
Short:=C<Mov(C,50,S);
Signal:=Long-short;
Signal
________
_____ / \_______
\____/
This creates a true ,false binary system
if the long condition is true it gives a +1 and the short condition gives a 0 so with that said the signal line will be 1-0=1 as long as the conditions remain the same.

if the short condition becomes true it will give +1 and the long condition gives a 0 so with that the signal line will be 0-1=-1

so a long buy signal for the first bar event would be Signal=1 and Ref(Signal,-1)<>1
a short sell signal for the first bar event would be Signal=-1 and Ref(Signal,-1)<>-1
A long exit signal would be Signal<>1 and Ref(Signal,-1)=1
A short exit signal would be Signal<>-1 and Ref(Signal,-1)=-1

If you were to use the forum dll in your systems it would be the same

{I use this formula for one of my issues in the Symbols section, not trend. Trend would have the "-2", "-1" in formula as usual.}
{BUY Condition}
BC:=Ref( Stoch(?,?), -1) < ?? AND Stoch(?,?) > ??

OR
{This statement used to catch Oversold condition}
Ref(Stoch(?,?),-1) < ?? AND Stoch(?,?) > ??;

{Sell Condition - I don't use a secondary Exit parameter - when they start selling it is often a panic, thus TWO Stochs, one for IN, one for Panic:-)}
SC:=Ref( Stoch(?,?), -2) > ?? AND Ref(Stoch(?,?),-1) < ??;

{EA Signal plotted one day before trade - trade at Open next day}
Trade:=If(BC,1,If(SC,0,PREV));
Cross(Trade,0.1)
---------------
In your case I would take one statement at a time, and comment out following Statements. See if that one statement is giving you anything close to what you are looking for. At least, if it doesn't barf, then add another statement, etc.
