Double stops using limit entry

Im trying to create the following stop mechanism:

  • Stop if Close > Limit Entry (on the same day as entry)
  • If not same day as entry, exit trade if Close > Previous day Close

I tried covering my exits the following way:

BarsInTrade = 0;

for( i = 0 ; i < BarCount ; i++ )
{

	if ( BarsInTrade > 0 )
	{
		BarsInTrade++;
		if ( Name() == "TSLA" )
			_TRACE(Name() + "(" + i + ") BarsInTrade: " + BarsInTrade[i] + " ");
	}
	else if (Buy[i] AND BarsInTrade == 0)
	{
		BarsInTrade = 1;
		//if ( Name() == "TSLA" )
		//	_TRACE(Name() + "(" + i + ") BarsInTrade: " + BarsInTrade[i] + " ");
	}
	
	if ( BarsInTrade == 1 AND C[ i ] > BuyPrice[i])
	{
		if ( Name() == "TSLA" )
			_TRACE(Name() + "(" + i + ") Sell1Bar: " + BarsInTrade + " Close: " + C[ i ] + " BuyPrice: " + BuyPrice[i] );
		
		Sell[ i ] = 1;
		BarsInTrade = 0;	
	}
	
	else if ( BarsInTrade > 1 AND C[ i ] > C[ i - 1 ])
	{
		if ( Name() == "TSLA" )
			_TRACE(Name() + "(" + i + ") SellMoreBars: " + BarsInTrade + " Close: " + C[i] + " Close(-1): " + C[i - 1]);
		Sell[ i ] = 1;
		BarsInTrade = 0;

	}
}

When I look at the trace both exits are triggered correctly. However in my backtest there are still trades that should have exited the same bar ( Close > Limit Entry )
