    So I recently switched over to Sterling Trader Pro coming from the using Ninja and Esignal. For the life of me, I can't figure out in the level 2 order window how to enter a buy order with a stop price.

    Example - Price trading at 54
    - in box next to CLR I put in 55
    - then in box next to that I select S-STP and enter 53 next to the box with red X
    Result - my buy limit at 55 wouldnt trigger and this is not slippage because i am testing 100 shares on a liquid stock.

    Sorry for how rediculous this is, but any simple solution would help. Yes, I actually did read the online pdf manual and no dice. I guess the question is too stupid to put in there.
