Synch setting with swing mechanical systems

Postby Algyros » 06 May 2010

When you use the Synch mode with automated trading, it seems to forget a previous days position and opens the following day flat. In other words, if I'm trading a swing automated system and I close the workspace at the end of the day with a long position, if I open the system up the following day in Synch mode, it starts flat, having "forgotten" the previous days long position.

Is this how it's supposed to be or am I missing something?

Thanks for the help.

Dear Sirs,

You should enable the "Assign the Initial Market Position at the Broker dialogue" - "Show always" option in Strategy Properties --> Auto Trading and set your current position in this dialogue every time you turn on the autotrading mode.
