Round Trip Trades

I'm trying to develop a bot where I can stack (say) 5 trades and go fishing!! The first instance would be a conditional order using a study alert with OCO exits. The second instance would need to skip the first alert and take the second. The third instance would skip the first two alerts and take the third, etc. The study would need an input setting that would tell it which alert to take. Is anyone willing to work with me on this? Thanks in advance.

Let me be a bit more specific. I have the study that I wish to use, although ANY strategy will work. I just want to know what I have to do in the code to make it not take the first trade. Or second trade, etc. Let's say we have a moving average crossover strategy. I want to know what I have to do to ignore (skip) the first crossover. Any help would be appreciated.

I found the answer to my question, thanks to a great video created by Pete Hahn. In the video, he shows how to use "Advanced Orders" and "1st triggers sequence". Totally awesome and the perfect solution to my problem!!! I suspect that Pete might be a member here, so I will think him for the great video about "round trip trades"
