    External interaction when strategy is running.

    I've coded a strategy that is executes both the entries and exits of a position (as all strategies do).
    However, in order to maximize profit, I need to manually execute the exit.
    Nevertheless, the strategy does not detect that my position has been closed and when the exit procedure is executed, it "closes" the current position, but instead it opens a position in the opposite direction.
    I use the comparison (Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Flat/Long/Short) to determine if I have a open position.
    But it seams that the MarketPosition is not updated when I close a position externally/manually.

    Is there a way to avoid this issue?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Capablanca,

    NinjaScript Strategies are not affected by orders placed outside of the Strategy.

    Instead, you can add a button that allows you to trigger the strategy to place the order internally.

    Below is a link to an example.
