Support Request:

I happened to exit a position initiated from Spreadsheet for Trading and exited from a client platform. I saw the documentation recommending to exit from Sierra chart instead of manually from external platform, but only after the fact.. Any action I need to take before the next transaction kicks in from Auto trading?


1) In thE J col of the sheet, Prior position shows as -1, while all other rows J3-9 are zero.
2) The Order quantity that was in position before I manually exited was 2 (short) per value in J26 cell.

Thanks in advance,

1, 2. From our perspective this information does not mean much. And it is also hard to understand without making reference to the particular cell numbers and their meaning to know what specifically you are referring to.

In general if the current Trade Position Quantity and the Orders look correct, then there should not be anything to be concerned with.
