@bigchappa You sold short 1436 shares at 69.60444641113281. The proceeds of that sale are 1436*69.60444641113281 = 99951.99. That's why your cash increased. When you buy shares, you spend your cash so it reduces. When you sell shares, you receive cash so it increases.
I see how it works now, but I still believe the correct way is to -99951.99 when shorting and +X amount when buy to cover. At least that make more sense to me. Thanks for clarifying.
@bigchappa Have you confirmed that the price of AAPL reached either 72.25 or 66.96 within 3 days of the the day this order was executed? If not then neither of the bracketing orders would be triggered.
Stupid me, missed that. How would I place sell_bracket order where short last 3 days and no limit on buy to cover?
@davidavr Thanks alot!
