After initiating a trade (M3 shows true), sc does not exit the trade (N3 shows true). The position is shown incorrectly as 0 in J5, while the open stop order is shown correctly in J3 and J4. I had first the exit condition inlude J5<>0, then as J5 did not show correct I had it include J3<>0. What can I do?

Please refer to this section here:

Why do you say J5 is showing an incorrect position? If it shows zero, then that is the actual position. You can confirm this by looking at the Positions tab of Trade >> Trade Orders and Positions.

Unless you are performing simulated trading, in that case you need to look at the Trade Stats for Charts Tab instead.

I rephrase my questions as I feel the t the current answer is that what I see on the screen cannot be:

#1
SC M3 if true initiates a trade in IB

#2
IB shows a position, while SC J5 does not show a position (0).
IB shows open orders and SC J3, J4 show open orders.

#3
N3 if true does not initiate a trade to close position
