order_value(context.aapl,10000)


This will order $10,000 worth of AAPL every time the condition is met, this builds up so if the condition is met two times, you'll hold$20,000 etc...

If you want to keep leverage at 1, use:

order_target_percent(context.aapl, 1)


This should do the job, I removed the Handle Date method because it just stacked orders.
