What do you count as a trading signal? Do you consider a position entry and a position exit two separate signals?

Each of our signals includes a suggested entry at market, three take profit levels (TP1, TP2 and TP3) and a single stop loss level (SL). In this sense, we consider a position entry, with the corresponding TPs and the SL, a separate signal. Therefore, if any of the pending orders associated with it gets triggered and executed, we do not consider this a separate signal.

If, however, we decide that the situation calls for a position to be closed at market, doing so will be counted as a separate signal from the opening one. This is quite logical, because closing a position at market contains a new instruction different from the ones included in the entry signal.
