IF/OR/AND Statement

I have attached an IF statement i made that is failing on certain pieces of data.

I may have constructed it incorrectly

The logic of the the IF is:

IF A2= FIT or FIJ and J2 = buy, leave O2 as it is

IF A2= FIT or FIJ and J2 = sel, multiply O2*-1

IF A2 = SIT and J2 = Buy, multiply o2*-1

IF A2 = SIT and J2 = sel, leave O2 as it is

I have attached the IF below
