As documented here the '1001 Info' message is related to a "look into the future".

So I suggest you double check the rules that generate your 'BuyCond1' to see what is causing the above message.

Info 1001 message is new INFORMATIONAL message and it is described in the Read me that says:

AFL Editor: added inline "Info" messages that show which lines/functions cause looking into the future, can be turned off via Prefs/Debugger or via Tools->Options menu in AFL Editor

INFORMATIONAL messages are ... for your information, so you are aware of possibly not-so-obvious effects of your code. It does not indicate an error. It is not blocking, or anything and it only appears in the Editor when you verify formula.

This is a feature that is meant as a tool to easily identify which parts of the code look into the future. Note that looking into the future may or may not be intentional. For example, non-system code that is NOT meant to be backtested is OK with that. However using forward-looking calls in trading systems inevitably leads to creating "too good to be true" system in most cases.
