Yes, this is a situation that will occur. Currently, the models operate independently and may conflict.
With this noted, the recent BTC “Open Long” did generate before a price surge. Both the long and short positions are currently in profit.
The ML team is working toward a unified signal. In the interim, it is good to consider mixed signals as “less strong” that fully aligned signals. In addition, please weigh the Market Index into consideration.
If the Market Index is negative and the signals are mixed, there may be more caution for taking a long trade. This may mean taking a smaller position or otherwise reducing your risk exposure.

An important note factor to consider is since these signals are optimized differently, the long and short signals will conflict from time to time. That means, for example, Auto-ML may have an open long trade while you see an “Open Short” from the short signal.
The Short signal is based on the same mechanism that Auto-ML uses. This means it is continuously pulling data and may issue a signal at any time. Likewise, it issues signals based on a similar machine-learning model, but is optimized to generate profit based on falling price.
