I started using x suite live yesterday but confused about the signals. Yesterday evening around 15:55 PM EST three stocks appeared TWX,COF and ROST therefore I entered in all of them, I am using eod data which is 20 minutes delay therefore i ran the data again at 11 pm, TWX disappered leaving COF and ROST in the signal list, today I ran the data around 15:55 PM but confused to see that ROST disappered, TWX reappeared as position already in. Now I ran data again today at 8 pm and now it shows TWX and COF. These signals appear and diappear during updates even after market is closed and somehow reappear next day. Anybody noticing it?

I have the same problem with xls-19 v2 where signals appear or disappear or reappear after coouple days. Signal should stick once market is closed.

I am running omnitrader 2017 pro version 2Q. eod data from omnidata.

Yes the signals should stick once the market is closed. But if you download data & run analysis before market close, the data for the current day is not yet complete, so analysis may or may not change later when you run it again.

You say you ran your ToDo List at 3:55PM EST which is 5 minutes before the close...with delayed data. To make sure you have complete data for the day you'll want to wait until at least 4:20PM EST. Then when you run the ToDo List it shouldn't have any new data to download, & that should eliminate any possible changes occurring with analysis.

If you still see it or have any doubt, make a screenshot of your OT after you complete your ToDo List & place your trades. Do this for a few days if you want. Then if you see it change, make a second screenshot showing the change & attach both pictures. Click here for help with screenshots.

As usual, Barry's correct. Thot I'd add that what he says applies to nearly every strategy that Nirvana provides.
