[Locked] - Spreadsheet, trade service log errors, no orders launched...

I made a slow replay backtest, with the psar as trade signal. when a psar dot appears, a trade must be opened.
to really see why orders are not launched and many signals ignored, i opened the trade service log, and detached the chart from the spreadsheet to follow each walk of the process carefully.
I also had read the link you provided about the ignored signals. And i see that on the trade service log, there are false position quantity and false position with working orders quantity(-1 and -1). The problem is this is not true, because there is no launched orders as i began the replay backtest at this time.
You can find an attached file that prove that. You can see the chart, with the arrow indicating the normal orders entry bars for the buy and for the sell, the spreadsheet with 0 at position quantity and 0 at working orders quantity, and with the message of the trade service log.
This is why so many rders are not launched by the spreadsheet, but for me the reason is a non sense.

Help me please, Thanks

Hello Sierra support or everyone.
Can i get some help please to be able to continue the work?
It's a simple crossover system that i want to test and i only want an always in the market system, buying on buy signal, holding till a sell signal happens, so it sells the buy position, and opens a sell signal immediately, holding it until a buy signal occurs, etc etc.
I need some help to fix the problem i mentionned upper, because some signals are not taken for a reason i don't know, as all normal conditions are ok.

Thanks for your interest!
