Hi Barry,

See below screenshots, which appears to be a bug? The trade was entered on January 29, 2016 and stopped out on April 22, 2016 (triggered by the Trailing Profit Stop condition). However, these options expired a month earlier on March 18th, which means that the Position Expiration Exit condition in the TradePlan should have been triggered, and exited the trade accordingly. The particular trade would have been profitable if exited by expiry. Instead, it's recorded as a loss due to all legs showing zero value for obvious reasons a month later.

This is not an isolated example. There are so many of them that it completely invalidates the Performance Summary report and/or PortSim results for the strategy.

Hi Barry,

Have you had a chance to look into this?
Autotrade with Options isn't reliable until this issue gets rectified.

I'm not seeing that issue. Can you post or email your strategy?

Hi Barry,

Seems like it only occurs in HA periodicities.

The attached screenshot is from a "OPT Long Option" TradePlan right out of the box.
A Fixed Loss Stop exited the trade on July 7th, but the options had already expired in June...

Thanks. It may be a bug with HA timeframes, I'll check & confirm.

Yes I see it now. It's very easy to see if the Position Expiration Exit is the only stop in your trade plan - trade never ends. I'll report it for correction, thanks.

The Position Expiration Exit was restricted to only work with the daily timeframe when we first released OptionTrader years ago. The next PR will have this exit working in any timeframe.
