I am trying to Drag and Drop to create an exit when a historical open position is 10 bars old and I have a current open position of the same security. I have tried to use the Position Based > Current Open Position is older than a number of bars - but this appears to use the current open position - am I doing something wrong? How can I set an exit for the historical position. In other words - opened a position 8 days ago - opened another position 3 days ago with same security - I want to set an exit to sell the position established 8 days ago when it is 10 days old. Any help would be most appreciated!

That's right. If you look at the code generated by the Wizard for multiple open positions with "Current Open Position is older than a number of bars", we see references to LastPosition:

Please log in to see this code.

If you substitute "LastPosition" with "p", the code will work as desired.
