When I use the strategy builder I want to use buy tomorrow at the close. When I test this it works fine. However when I switch to the %u2018manual%u2019 mode I see the generated code but it does not buy at the close of tomorrow anymore. What is the correct syntax for this?

Please use this formula to buy tomorrow at the close.

SetSimTiming(_Buy, _Close, 0);

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
