referencing FPL() in a strategy (to set a daily $ cap)

so i have this snippet of code that basically say if my strategy HASN'T gained more than $500 for the day allow any more trades.
when i add "allow_more_trades" as condition to my actual ADDORDER it just doesn't work.
does any one have a clue why that is?


Code:
def timeopenEntryy = 0930;
input daily_gain = 500;

def FPL_at_timeopenEntry = if SecondsFromTime(timeopenEntryy) == 0 then FPL() else FPL_at_timeopenEntry[1];

def FPL_Line = FPL_at_timeopenEntry;
def s= reference floatingPL();
def threshold = FPL_at_timeopenEntry + daily_gain;
plot LogicPlot = if(s) > threshold then FPL() else Double.NaN;
LogicPlot.SetDefaultColor(Color.GREEN);
def allow_more_trades= !logicplot;

i loaded a strategy i have , to generate orders.
i set the trade size to 100.

i started with your code , then changed most of it.
set daily gain = 150

i changed the enable signal so, once it goes to no, it stays no until the next day

added a bubble to display some values.
it changes color, green when fpl is below the upper limit, and gray after it crosses that level.


Code:
#strat_fpl_daily_limit

#https://usethinkscript.com/threads/referencing-fpl-in-a-strategy-to-set-a-daily-cap.18559/

declare lower;

def timeopenEntryy = 0930;
input daily_gain = 500;

def newday = SecondsFromTime(timeopenEntryy) == 0;

def f = fpl();
def FPL_at_dayopen = if newday then f else FPL_at_dayopen[1];

plot FPL_Line = FPL_at_dayopen;
fpl_line.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
fpl_line.SetDefaultColor(Color.white);

def threshold = FPL_at_dayopen + daily_gain;

plot FPL_thres = threshold;
FPL_thres.SetPaintingStrategy(PaintingStrategy.HORIZONTAL);
FPL_thres.SetDefaultColor(Color.white);


def en = if newday then 1
 else if en[1] == 0 then 0
 else if f <= threshold then 1
 else 0;

def allow_more_trades = en;
plot z = f;


addchartbubble(1, FPL_at_dayopen ,
 f + " f\n" +
 threshold + " th\n" +
 en + " en"
 , (if en then color.green else color.gray), no);

#plot z0 = 0;
