I experimented a bit with the automated trading function. Anyone out there using this to place trades? It seems that it's impossible to automate a limit order, as it seems to force you to enter an actual price in the limit field. Is there any way to use the LAST price or LAST+.04 for a limit price with this program? Or maybe BID or ASK or something like that?
It seems quite silly to require that you enter an actual price, considering this is supposed to be an automated trading platform, and you aren't going to know in two hours what price the stock will be trading at, so how can you enter an actual price in the Limit field?
I don't think I want to be sending market orders all over the place, so how does one automate a limit order with Strategy Desk?
The documentation that comes with the program is pitiful, as you may have guessed....lol
