TWS automation

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by easyrider, Apr 26, 2002.

  1. Is it possible for me to set up TWS where I can place a trade, put in a 4 point stop loss and have that stoploss move with the market if the trade goes my way? I missed a lot of money yesterday when the market moved my way big time then retraced before I could get back to my computer.
  2. hi,
    i often read 'TWS' and hope, it means 'trading workstation'.
    if tws is a tradingsoftware, just forget what i type :).

    i use TS6 and handle my exit only by trailing stops (or complex strategies created with easylanguage).
    once you entered a maximum $-risk, the program sends automatically the sellorder if stopprice is reached.
    but beware of beeing disconnected! the program cant watch the prices then and will not exit.
    so dont get too far from your computer
