The decision recipe for comparing position leg properties has six inputs:
- Long / short
- Call / put
- Greater than / less than / equal to
This decision recipe allows you to reference specific options leg properties before moving through the automation.
Because the comparing position leg properties decision recipe uses information from an existing position inside a bot, it is typically used in monitor automations and after a repeater action.
The first field prompts you to choose an existing open position inside the bot. Each existing position in the bot will be linked, and this field will pull in the necessary data from the position.
The second and third fields prompt you to define the option leg to be referenced. For example, if using a short put spread, you must tell the recipe to pull data for the short put option leg or long put option leg.
The fourth field prompts a dropdown menu to select the variable property to be analyzed.
The fifth field prompts a dropdown menu to choose if the individual option leg property is greater than, less than, or equal to the sixth field, where you manually input a value. When you have finished creating the recipe, select “Save.
NOTE: You can also create a custom input for the value, which allows you to input the field later to make the decision recipe dynamic across all automations.
The decision will be added to the list of criteria. You have the option to add more decisions to the recipe or return to the automation editor. When finished, select “Save” again to return to the automation editor.
The automation editor will display your completed decision criteria for comparing position leg properties.
You can always select the decision inside the automation editor and make changes to the criteria.
