    PositionEventArgs and nested Position property differ

    The entry was long, then I hit the Closse button, or a Sell Mkt button matching the same quantity, and this code gives me conflicting values:
    Code:
    void OnPositionUpdate(object sender, PositionEventArgs e){
    	try{
    		_Dispatcher.InvokeAsync(() => {
    			Print(string.Format("e.MarketPosition: {0}", e.MarketPosition));
    			Print(string.Format("e.Position.MarketPosition: {0}", e.Position.MarketPosition));
    		});
    	}catch (Exception error){ _Dispatcher.InvokeAsync(() => Print(error.ToString())); }
    }
    Shouldn't these two values be the same? Output:
    e.MarketPosition: Flat
    e.Position.MarketPosition: Long
    Why are the properties of the nested Position member of the PositionEventArgs instance different.

    Hello xcondor,

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    Considering the help guide documentation for Account.PositionUpdate suggests to use PositionEventArgs.MarketPosition and the result is what we would expect, I would suggest moving forward with e.MarketPosition.

    Nonetheless, since there is not any clear documentation on PositionEventArgs and expected usage, I am consulting with Product Management on the matter.

    I'll update this post as more information becomes available.

      It appears that e.Position is the position from BEFORE the update event fired.

        Hello xcondor,

        Position.MarketPosition is the position that gets added or removed. If we add a print for e.ToString(), we can see the Add and Remove operations.

        instrument='ES 06-18' account='Sim101' avgPrice=2671.75 quantity=1 marketPosition=Long operation=Add
        e.MarketPosition: Long
        e.Position.MarketPosition: Long

        instrument='ES 06-18' account='Sim101' avgPrice=0 quantity=0 marketPosition=Flat operation=Remove
        e.MarketPosition: Flat
        e.Position.MarketPosition: Long
        Upon entering with a Buy Market, we see the current MarketPosition read as long, and an operation of adding a long Position.MarketPosition is seen.

        Upon exiting with a Sell Market, we see the current MarketPosition read as flat, and an operation of removing a long Position.MarketPosition is seen.

        If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
