200 MA on <200 day old symbol

Hi, I have a condition of close greater than 200 day MA. When running exploration for most recent day I get signals to buy symbols that have not existed for 200 days yet, but they are trending higher and i guess would be above the 200 MA if 200 days had passed. These trades do not appear in the backtest. They do not appear in the exploration when I change the date to a previous day. How can I stop these signals being generated?

Unfortunately your question isn't clear enough and does not provide all necessary details to give you an answer. Please follow this advice: How to ask a good question

200-bar moving average needs 200-bars worth of data. If you get less data, the result is Null (unknown yet, because there is not enough data).
