Open and Close Positions on ByBit Automatically

It is convenient when a reverse order from your strategy/indicator closes an existing position before opening. In this article, we detail how you can achieve this while automating TradingView alerts to ByBit.

Strategies With a Close Command
For better results, switch to one-way position mode and use the command {{strategy.market_position}}. If your account is in hedge mode, you will need to add the parameter “hedge” without the " at the end of your command for it to work correctly.

Strategies Without a Close Command
For you to successfully perform this operation, you will need to switch the Position Mode to One-Way Mode on your ByBit account under settings. After verifying these settings, proceed as follows:
For a strategy, combine {{strategy.order.action}} to generate the Buy/Sell action and multi commands in the order of priority. See the example below:

{{strategy.order.action}} BTCUSDT Q=0.02

The above command will first close any existing BTCUSDT position before executing the strategy command.

That way you can always keep closing existing positions and opening new positions on reversal.
