Hi there,
Is there a way to avoid entering position on the same bar? The Message log is full of messages like this:

Order Action is ignored because sc.AllowOnlyOneTradePerBar is TRUE and a signal for the same Order Action (SellEntry) was already given on the bar.

What am I missing in my code?

// CROSSOVER
//
  if (!Enabled.GetYesNo())
    return;


  SCFloatArrayRef Last = sc.Close;

  // Use persistent variables to remember attached order IDs so they can be modified or canceled.
  int& Target1OrderID = sc.PersistVars->i1;
  int& Stop1OrderID = sc.PersistVars->i2;


  // Create an s_SCNewOrder object.
  s_SCNewOrder NewOrder;
  NewOrder.OrderQuantity = InputSize.GetInt();
  NewOrder.OrderType = SCT_MARKET;

  //Specify a Target and a Stop with 8 tick offsets. We are specifying one Target and one Stop, additional targets and stops can be specified as well.
  NewOrder.Target1Offset = (InputTarget.GetInt())*sc.TickSize;
  NewOrder.Stop1Offset = (InputStop.GetInt())*sc.TickSize;
  NewOrder.OCOGroup1Quantity = 0; // If this is left at the default of 0, then it will be automatically set.

Buy[sc.Index] = 0;
Sell[sc.Index] = 0;

if (sc.CrossOver(TPZeroLagTEMA, HAZeroLagTEMA) == CROSS_FROM_BOTTOM)
{
Buy[sc.Index] = sc.Low[sc.Index] - sc.TickSize;
int Result = sc.BuyEntry(NewOrder);
    if (Result > 0) //If there has been a successful order entry, then draw an arrow at the low of the bar.
    {
      

      // Remember the order IDs for subsequent modification and cancellation
      Target1OrderID = NewOrder.Target1InternalOrderID;
      Stop1OrderID = NewOrder.Stop1InternalOrderID;
    }
}
else if (sc.CrossOver(TPZeroLagTEMA, HAZeroLagTEMA) == CROSS_FROM_TOP)
{
Sell[sc.Index] = sc.High[sc.Index] + sc.TickSize;
int Result = sc.SellEntry(NewOrder);
    if (Result > 0)
      // Remember the order IDs for subsequent modification and cancellation
      Target1OrderID = NewOrder.Target1InternalOrderID;
      Stop1OrderID = NewOrder.Stop1InternalOrderID;
    }

The ther problem is this: SellEntry signal is ignored because a Short position exists or working order quantities indicate a potential Short position, and Multiple Entries in Same Direction is not enabled. Internal position quantity: -1. Internal position with working orders quantity: 0
