Hello,

i would like to know if you have a function which flattens (exits) all or certain positions at a defined time.

Lets say i have a Long Mini DAX positions at friday but i want to close it by time automatically before the exchange closes to avoid holding overnight or over weekend.

All the best!

This can be accomplished by using the Spreadsheet System for Trading study:

You will need to study the documentation for the Spreadsheet System for Trading study and use a formula to submit an order based upon time.

However, the suggestion given in post #4 will be much easier but it applies to all current Trade Positions.

So in that case, use the Global Profit/Loss Management feature:

Here is the specific section:

I using suggestions on the post 4 and flatten the position at set time by holding the open position with oco order.

How do I check the final flatten price for the position?

You can use the Trade Activity Log or, if Sierra Chart has not been closed, you could use the Orders and Positions Window. Refer to:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/TradeActivityLog.php

and:

The Trade Activity Log page linked above does discuss missing order fills.

You should use the CTS low cost connection model so you do not miss any order fills:
