Evaluating Position Side

The 'Position is long' decision evaluates if a position is long or short.


Why would I use this decision?

This decision helps distinguish between "long" positions and "short" positions. The path of an automation can split based on the answer to the question of whether a position is "long" or "short". This can be helpful for monitoring positions based on whether they are "long" or "short".

Does this decision preclude the need for a "repeater"?

No necessarily. It is always recommended to use a "repeater" in a monitor automation.
