Assign Market Position at Broker requires position name field

When assigning initial market position at broker there is no ability to name the open position and thus when using 'PosTradeEntryName' as part of the exit criteria the open position will never be closed by Multicharts as the open position is unnamed.

See thread for full story: http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=45939

Steps to reproduce this issue


if EntryCondition1 = true buy ("tradeName") next bar at market at market
if ExitCondition1 = true and PosTradeEntryName(0,0) = "tradeName" then sell next bar at market


  1. EntryCondition1 is met and a long trade called 'tradeName' has been executed.
  2. Multicharts/PC/Server/DataCenter goes down.
  3. Restart Multicharts and Assign Initial Market Position at Broker

Because the exit code requires the currently open trade to be called "tradeName" and this cannot be set by using Assign Initial Market Position at Broker there is no way for the currently open position at the broker to be handled by Multicharts.
