That's almost like a reversal system, without the reverse. OT cannot do what you are asking as far as I know. It needs to have a day that has a signal fired, then either buy the close of that day or the open of the next (or some other method). Once it's in the trade it can exit the same day. But while in the trade, it ignores any additional Signals for new trades since its already in one.

You can design a pure reversal system, but it requires use of the Orders Block (not the Trade Plan block). The exit signal *is* the entry signal, in the opposite direction. But that's not what you asked for.

Using a Trade Plan you can design a scaling-in and scaling-out strategy. I've set up trade plans with Entry and five Addons, combined with random Pattial exits … trade plans are versatile! But …

I have no idea why you'd want to do what you are describing - if you could explain the purpose behind it maybe I could suggest another way of going about it.
