I am trying to set the exit trigger to the low of the trigger day that set up the entry. In other words I want to exit if the price drops below the low of the trigger day candle. Is there correct wording for this or is it even possible in the backtest? I didn't get an answer under Backtesting Support.

in the exit section on back test put

Low < Low 1 day ago

low of the trigger day... you can use a stop loss of like 2 to 3 % you cant extract a price and store that value... would be too nice of a feature...

there is a way just look at the symmetric triangle command.. it connects the lower lows.. i would like to see the code and how it is written out...
