The decision recipe for comparing position properties has four inputs:
- Greater than / less than / equal to
This decision recipe allows you to reference specific position properties before moving through the automation.
Because the comparing position 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 field prompts a dropdown menu to choose from multiple variables relating to the position.
The third field prompts you to choose if the property is greater than, less than, or equal to the fourth field’s value, where you manually input a value. The properties relate to the entire position, not specific option legs. To reference specific legs of an option spread, use the “comparing position leg properties” decision recipe. 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 properties.
You can always select the decision inside the automation editor and make changes to the criteria.
