Removal of ability to increase position sizes

We’ve removed the ability to increase the size of positions opened by AutoTrade.

Why? Why oh why oh why oh WTAF!?!

This is a really important piece of functionality for certain risk management. E.g. I have been using it to rebalance fully hedged strategies more often than the trade leader does.

Why on earth have you pulled this!?!

Hi Chris:

Originally we removed this because we were concerned about a possible scenario where a manually-created position might be left open.

But we have worked on this, and we are now able to restore the functionality.

Sorry for the hassle.

Great. Thanks. Looks resolved for me.

Expected behaviour for me;

  1. If trade leader closes whole positi9n you close my whole position
  2. If trade leader increases or decreases position you do the same to mine pro-rata if I have changed the size already

No, actually what will happen is:

Trade Leader quantity reductions will be applied to your account as if you had not manually increased position size.

When Strategy closes position fully, your remaining position will be closed via “sync” cleanup cycle.
