Risk Disclosure

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

Signal Blocker Node


The Signal Blocker node will block consecutive/continuous signals until a Reset condition occurs. Connect your signals to the Input connector. The Output connector will allow the first signal through and block the remaining unwanted signals until a Reset condition occurs. A Reset condition turns the signal blocking off, so the next wanted trade signal is not blocked,

Options

This parameter determines what the minimum input Confidence value must be to be considered a Signal.

When False, Long and Short signals will be blocked.  If True, when a Long signal activates this node only Long signals will be blocked.  The same is true for Short signals.

 

Reset

See the Reset table here.

The number of bars at which the node will reset or stop blocking signals, unless a Reset On parameter resets the node sooner.

Output

When the node is actively blocking a signal a output value can be specified instead of zero. IE. if the node is blocking a Short signal and this value is set to 0.25 the output of the node will be 0.25 until the Short signal is no longer being blocked.
