Buttons for Maintenance
« on: November 11, 2021, 06:17:17 am »
Hi,

I've never used two buttons, "Resume Trading" and "Reset Last Opened," in the Maintenance button set.
On what occasions are these buttons used?
It seems to be something to do with operations with IB TWS.

* Resume Trading: see the very last chapter here: https://wiki.pairtradinglab.com/wiki/PTL_Trader_Manual
* Reset Last Opened: manually resets the last-opened counter for opened position to 0 days (usually used when someone did not start PTL Trader for very long time after he used it to enter position, most likely in paper trading/testing)

Thank you for your quick support.  :)

*Resume Trading: Sorry, I have overlooked very last line of the wiki page. The button may be for the users trading volatility ETNs such as VXX.

*Reset Last Opened: I got it. It may be useful for me sometime.
