Description

Hi
When disabling automation, there is an option to close the position.
However, when enabling automation it may be that the broker position is flat, and the backtested position is open. Currently one has to execute the broker position manually. Please can you create an option "Broker position is FLAT, bring broker position to backtested position" meaning that when automation is off and then turned on, a position is executed at the current market rate to get the actual broker position to be inline with chart position.
E.G. The strategy is already long 1 contract, and automation is off. I have the mentioned option selected. I switch on Automation and regardless of the price MC executes a position at the broker to buy +1 contract. The broker position now = the chart position.
As mentioned there function already exists the other way around; when switching off automation the position can be closed at the broker.

Steps to reproduce this issue

Switch auto on, with an existing position.  Broker position will not equal the chart position.
