Soooo got this autotrade entry fail message today:

"AutoTrade Entry failed; Account: U2247185, Symbol: CHTR, Tradeplan: (Strategy), Strategy: ATM MOC VBX-3(MVX)v2,

***Error: Your 'VBX-3 Stop' virtual condition will fire immediately after submitting this plan.***

Make sure to adjust this condition outside the range or time limit of the current bar to prevent this scenario.."

Whaaaa? Can someone explain what's going on here? It's almost like it got an entry and then sees an exit fire at the same time (profit or fixed loss who knows but it was a big up day for CHTR today)

OBTW using Mkt orders but running my to-do list starting at 3:15 to simulate MoC. This came at 3:44 pm

That’s a validation check we added years ago that protects you.

Trade plans that have a stop configured where it would trigger immediately cannot be submitted. The close price of CHTR is already passed the condition of your VBX-3 stop.

If the validation check did not exist, you would submit the trade, then the VBX-3 stop would immediately exit the trade, & I don't think you would want that.
