RE: s_SCPositionData PositionData;        
PositionData.PriceHighDuringPosition AND PositionData.PriceLowDuringPosition

I am not sure of the correct behavior for these two items.
The PriceHighDuringPosition and PriceLowDuringPosition return -inf until the position experiences a high or low different from the entry price.
I would expect an initial default to a price value like the entry price.

Is this the correct behavior?

It does not cause any errors in my code but it does skew my calculations by not having a value until after a high or low different from the open price is experienced.

Not sure you would see those particular values. We would think they would be 0 or DBL_MAX. DBL_MAX would indicate that the variables are in unset state. The entry price does not set those variables.
