    I've spent some time searching these forums and the internet but can't get what I'm looking for. Hope you guys can help and sorry for probably asking a stupid question.

    I've paper traded Fx on the Oanda FXgame and have now opened my first real money account at IB. I'm looking for a similar interface to Oanda to use to enter and exit trades. E.g. where I can set Take Profit and Stop loss levels when entering into the trade and where I can view these levels on an interactive chart.

    Any advice will be appreciated.
  2. You can configure orders for each instrument you trade via the configure menu....

    Including Stop Loss, profit taking, etc...

    I dont use the FX trader when I trade forex, I use the standard page.... allows me to place the orders and see the daughter orders...... (P/T and S/L orders at a glance)
