Manual Trading

Not all trading has to be automated. Learn how to manually open and close positions directly inside Option Alpha. Plus, you can still automate position management and create hybrid trading strategies.


How do I manually close a position?

To close a position, select an open position in the Position Statement’s Active Positions section and click the “Close Position” button. Choose your order settings.

How can I manually open a new position?

Select the “+” icon in the Position Statement’s Active Positions section to open a new position manually.

Are manually opened and closed positions still reflected in the bot Log?
