Automatic stop-loss and profit target in sterling pro

  1. Is it possible to have sterling pro automatically place a stop and profit target immediately an order is placed. If not, how can this be achieved without any extensive programming?

    I'm familiar with Ninjatrader and i can simply do this with the in-built ATM strategy .
     
  2. You can place two orders, then tag them as OCO. When one executes, the other will cancel.

  3. Thanks... I guess there is no way to do that automatically? I just need a system to place a stop and profit target immediately i get into a trade.
     
  4. We can do that with ReaLTick. What broker do you use?
     
  5. I'm with a prop firm that only uses sterling platform.
     
  6. Then you will need to enter three orders or move you business.
