Excluding Overlapping Trades – Help Please
I would like to understand what exactly “Exclude Overlapping Trades” does in What If
I have a basket of EA’s with a number of currency pairs
When a signal is triggered in any pair it takes many simultaneous trades
If I tick the above if another pair is triggered to trade at the “same time” whilst the first lot of positions are still open will it ignore these?
-Does it exclude overlapping trades at the TIME the trades are initiated/opened OR does it simply prevent more than one curreny pair trading at ANY point in time?

I am also struggling to understand this whatif function of “excluding Overlapping Trades”. I’ve attached an image containing a list of trades (left side) showing the original portfolio, and a list of trades (right side) showing the portfolio after applying the overlapping trades filter. Since the first trade USDCAD was closed on 01.10.2012 at 11:00:00, shouldn’t the EURCAD trade highlighted on the list to the left be opened next since it was opened on 01.10.2012 at 16:00:00 or even the next trade EURGBP 02.10.2012 at 06:00:00 instead of the AUDCAD 02.10.2012 at 19:00:00? Or am I missing something? It also seems like every trade with a duration greater than 8 days was skipped even if they were next to be opened.
I really admire this software and am starting to develop a level of dependence on it, but this issue lessens my trust. I hope there’s something I’m just overlooking.
Thank you for your time!
