I'm backtesting a system with the spreadsheet systems.
This is a crossover system, giving arrows up and down for buy sell signals. I'm automating it with spreadsheets.
I want any opened order to be closed when an opposite signal is trigerred.
I tried to allow this with the spreadsheet study inputs, but it doesn't work.
Maybe i done something incorrectly.
Attached, you can see the settings i used in the inputs, and the chart.
On the chart, you see sell orders triggered with the arrow, then buy signals coming, but they are not triggered.
Maybe they just close the sell orders. Stop Loss is not wide too, so maybe it's just the SL hit.
Want i want is that any opposite signal close the current order, and open its trade.
I don't want to use the buy exit and sell exit columns in the spreadsheet.

Thanks for the help.
