I have a strategy that I've been trying to run for a good while now, but it never seems to generate Buy signals in the Strategy Monitor. It generates Sell signals as expected. In backtesting, everything works fine. Can anyone think of a possible reason for this?

The strategy is a 5-minute streaming strategy that only uses Market buy/sell. It's configured to use 500 bars of data when running in the strategy monitor. The only thing I can think of that's different about this strategy, compared to my others that work fine, is that this strategy has a "SROC(close, 17) crosses under X" condition. I don't think I've ever used the SROC indicator in a live strategy before.

I don't think it has anything to do with SROC. Probably something to do with Live Positions?

You could (temporarily) replace SROC by ROC to see if it makes any difference...

Check:
1. Is Preferences > Live Positions enabled?
2. Is there a position for the symbol you're trading the Accounts tool?

If the answer is yes to both of those, a Strategy that trades only 1 position will not process the entry logic in a Streaming Chart or Strategy Monitor because it syncs the Strategy to the "Live Position" and will be processing the exit logic only.
