Brackets clarification

I know these are basic but gonna ask you gurus anyway
a) Bracket orders are completely held at server including initial trigger order? meaning if i place a bracket order and shut down before it triggers, still it might trigger since they say all smart orders are at the server?
b) Just for confirmation, if the initial trigger order is executed and then i shutdown, i am assuming profit and target are held at CQG servers

c) i know i can place fixed targets and stops and maybe even a trailing stop BUT can i make it start at a wider stop say 25 ticks and then once the price move say 8 ticks in my favor bring the stop to BE? and then trail with certain offset. Any suggestions are welcome. Here is an example
Initial stop 25 ticks
Price moves 8 ticks in favor, then move stop to BE+1 - this itself would be sufficient
Then for every 5 ticks of price movement in our favor, move stop by 1 tick - nice to have

d) Could not find multi stops/brackets i.e. 1st contract Profit/stop different from 2nd contract profit/stop etc
ThinkorSwim has it, Sierra has it, Ninja of course has it

Thanks much in advance

No. This is very annoying but if you're not logged on they become limit orders.

Yes, once bracket orders have been triggered, you can log off. Stop and target will be held on server side.

About c) or d) I don't think you can do it with QTrader or, if you can, I don't know how.

one more silly question - seems so basic

a) CQG Qtrader DOM: Not able to place Stops..

If i place a Buy order below market, its a Limit
If i place an order above the market, it executes immediately - what i want is to make that a STOP order
Same for Sell side.. where below the market i want to make it a STOP


b) Also I was not able to scroll down with a Mac mouse - i fixed that my switching to a windows mouse.. strange

In order to put stop-buy or stop-sell orders what you want to do is to click on the price above/below market and drag onto buy/sell.

Works pretty much the same way it does to create a stop-loss order.

here's another way to do it (it's actually quite simple) : press "Ctrl", and the order type button on the DOM is going to change from default LMT to STP. Then you can place your stop order

also

you can enable limit/stop mode on the DOM preferences and that will automatically allow you to place the order type that you want without switching back and forth. See pics

You can set stops by dragging from the price to the stop portion of the DOM. This is in the CQG DOMtrader videos
