    I need some help trying to figure this out in IB.

    I would like to place an order in IB where I can execute a market order and then a limit order to close out that position by X amount of points.... all in 1 click

    how do I go about doing this?
  2. Define a hot key or hot mouse click to send a market order with an attached target limit order.

    but how do you define a limit order based on ticks instead of an exact price?
  4. Look at auto-trader or bracket-trader
