I am not aware of any Market Wizard who is not an Elite Member, although it is not a requirement.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.
Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers. 6) Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

That's just another way to skin a cat. I suspect that either would give you the same results if you're just trying to determine if you're in a trade. I typically use
Position.MarketPosition = MarketPosition.Long or MarketPosition.Short to deal with being long or short. You won't know that using Position.Quantity.
Another plug for you to consider being elite (note that I don't get any compensation or credit if you do) is that you seem to be interested in trading and also with auto trading. What you can't see is the numerous webinars that have been given by experienced traders to share their knowledge with you and are available to the elite members. The value of information available far exceeds the small cost, especially when you compare to the thousands of web sites out there that offer trader training for a lot more. One better trade will make up the cost of membership. I promise I won't say any more about this.
