Thanks. How is the stop stored on the server? Lets say I was a big player with a 300 lot stop, can others see where that stop is? It sounds like a market order gets you out of the position?

As far as I understand, this is platform dependent. CQG does not send stops to the exchange (they are stored on CQG's servers) so in that case they can't be seen.

If I were to implement this, how do I do it?

What platform are you using?

See above
