#### Topic: Open Position only when MA falls, but it also opens when it rises

Hey Friends,

An opening logic condition is: MA falls. But there are still open positions when the MA rises.
I do not understand why a position is opened, although the condition is not met.

Can someone help me?

Thx.

There is no open position for the selected bar.

Ok, i give you another example:

CrisV,

You set trading rules for the long positions in FSB. The program calculates the opposite rules for the short positions automatically.

In the strategy below, all rules for short positions are "Yes" (true). That's why the program opens a short position here.

Here is an article for the strategy slots: http://forexsb.com/wiki/fsbpro_guide/indicator_slots

I'll move this topic to the Forex Strategy Builder themes.

You can choose Thumbnail for Forums (1) option from postimage.org in order to make the images better looking in the forum.

If you are sure you want only long positions. you can use "Long or Short" indicator.

Does this mean, that if the Strategy Builder has a logic for Long-Trades, it will does the opposite for Short-Trades?

Until now i thought, that only positions are opend, if the logic condition is met ... in my case: the MA falls

It is exactly the way the program works. You set long rules only, the program makes the short opposite to them.

Ok, thank you very much!

But honestly this is confusing, because the condition is (in my case) that the MA should fall to open a position. Therefore, positions should only be opened, when MA falls, whether Short or Long.
Maybe ohter users think the same like me ...

For now, i know how it works.
