SRTY ¹: Robot worked correctly, but the downbound train did not leave the station.

SRTY ²: There is a bug in the trading model: if SRTY makes a new low and then later that same day a “buy” signal is issued, the model will always say “sell” one hour later.  In this case, that turned out to be a reasonable move because the downbound train did not leave the station.  Needs fixing, though.
