Comparing Position Duration

The 'Position has been open more than 1 market day' decision references a position’s duration from entry.


Why would I use a Repeater action with this recipe?

Repeater actions cycle through all open positions. You may want to ensure every position is referenced.

Can I use this automation to open a position?

Position decisions are best used in monitor automations to close a position.

Can this calculation be done on stock or is it for options only?

You can reference how long a position has been opened for stocks and options.

If I use the "Exactly" function and that day lands on a holiday or weekend, what happens?

The automation will result in a "No" because the automation will not run on weekends or a holiday.

Is the number of days designator based on just trading days or does it include weekends and holidays?

All calendar days are used when comparing how long a position has been open.

Can I combine multiple criteria together in an automation?

Yes, you can group and nest multiple decisions with "and/or" functionality.
