    It is seen that usually volumes of scrips on XETRA dries up suddenly.Scrips enjoying good trading activity on one bar may not trade for 5 to 10 minutes on next bar.Is it possible to weed out such scrips?Trading terminal has provision of order types of Stop Market Order,Stop Limit Order,Discretionary Order ,Trailing Stop Order , DynaBeat Order , One-Cancels-the-Other Orders,IfDone Orders.Which is best order type for such scrips?
