Auto Limit Orders

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by IanMacQuaide, Aug 26, 2010.

  1. Can one automate an entry 1 tick above/below a just finished printing range bar?
    It would have to be a semi-auto
    (semi-auto..haha-bad joke!)
    ...I'd need to hit a key (button?) to send the Limit OCO/Bracket Order, and I suppose there'd have to be 2 keys, one for Short and one for Long.

    yes you can do this
  3. Rosy where would I start to find out HOW?
    I can trade, but I know literally nothing about programming.

    easiest is find a programmer to do it for you. but that is a challenge in itself. doing it yourself will be difficult.
  5. An easier discretionary way is to add hot keys. Most platforms with DOM Ladders support hot keys. X-Trader, OEC etc.
  6. I'll contact my broker..he's a tech geek.
    I was thinking HOT KEYs..but wasn't sure if they'd do Limit orders.
    Thanks for the idea.
