Hi,My system raise the buy sign at hour bar but trade at tick period. Is it available in RE?

When i buy a position, then I wanna have a SMA on tick period or tailingstop on tick period, is it possible?

You can override the NewTick method (see help), but you'll only have the last calculated SMA at the bar level. We don't update indicators at the tick level.

It's not clear exactly what you want, but it sounds like RightEdge will do what you want. The only thing it won't do is update an hourly SMA (or any indicator with a time-based frequency) every time a tick comes in. If you want to have an SMA over tick bars, that is supported.

Trailing stops are submitted as stop orders, so they will be filled at the tick level if your are running live, and if you are running a simulation they will be filled at whatever frequency your data is.

Thanks,
Daniel
