How to calculate (or get) the 'life time' value of an open position in Pine Script?

For example, I want to close a position at the current market price if it has been opened >1 month ago , how do I code that? Thanks

  • Here's just to better explain my problem:

    if __BUY_CONDITION__
    strategy.entry("BUY", strategy.long)
    time_when_bought = time

    if __SELL_CONDITION__ and (time.now - time_when_bought > 1 month)
    strategy.entry("SELL", strategy.short)

    The above code does not work because 'time_when_bought' variable is defined within a local loop and thus not available for checking in the sell condition block... is there any way to make it work?
