Hi,
I am running a money management script posted by another user.I keep on getting an error message..

OnEndPeriod : Compilation error in 'OnEndPeriod':
Unable to cast object of type 'System.Double' to type 'System.String'.

OnEndPeriod : Compilation error in 'OnEndPeriod':
Unable to cast object of type 'System.Double' to type 'System.String'.

The user has checked the code and it works fine for him.No issues.Why would I be getting that error message and what does it mean?

Best Answer
I sent you an email with fixed code:

double vixPeriod = (double)Variables.GetVariable("MA Period");
double newPercent = (double)Variables.GetVariable("New Percent to Invest");
double perInvested = (double)Variables.GetVariable("per_invested");
string inst = (string)Variables.GetVariable("Instrument");
string mav = (string)Variables.GetVariable("Type MA");


TimeSeries ts = Data.ParseFormula("a = close < ma(close, " + Math.Round(vixPeriod, 0) + ","+mav+");").GetTimeSeries(""+inst+"", "a");
//TimeSeries ts = Data.ParseFormula("a = close < sma(close, " + Math.Round(vixPeriod, 0) + ");").GetTimeSeries(""+(string)inst+"", "a");

Divers.Output("inst"+inst);
Divers.Output("ma:"+mav);


if(ts[0] == 1)
{

if(perInvested != newPercent)
{
Portfolio.UpdateCategorySettings("long", (double)newPercent, TradingSystemSettings.NbPositions, Orders.CloseMarketOrder());
Portfolio.UpdateCategorySettings("short", (double)newPercent, TradingSystemSettings.NbPositions, Orders.CloseMarketOrder());



}
}
else
{

{

Portfolio.UpdateCategorySettings("long", 100, TradingSystemSettings.NbPositions, Orders.CloseMarketOrder());
Portfolio.UpdateCategorySettings("short", 100, TradingSystemSettings.NbPositions, Orders.CloseMarketOrder());

}
}

hey Clonex, can you so kindly make a MM script for a intraday strategies where the strategies buys X amount of positions and ends all position if the net P&L on all positions is X

for example a traders daily goal is: 200$, when the net P&L (combined pnl on all 10 positions) is $200, the system exits all positions
or if the net loss on all position is 200$, the system exits all positions.

That would be much appreciated!

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
