In Limit/Stop mode you click on the price to put a limit order in, and for stops click the price you want,hold it, and drag it over to the stop column, then release it. It is very quick and easy. This is in the cqg domtrader videos as I mentioned yesterday

Found the issue : The Stop and Limit should be close and not far away see screenshot

If the Limit an Stop are like 10 ticks away.. then it becomes confusing

If the Limit/Stop values are just 0 or a few ticks then it shows it

Here is the

I don't get it.... setting a stop buy/sell order should work fine, as many ticks away as you need.


But what you're saying is, if you try to set them farther than a set number of ticks, you can't?

Clarification

Originally on mine.. if i set Stop/Limit as 10 ticks each.. i think that was too wide.. and it showed my entire ladder as Limit..

IF i narrowed it down to say 3 ticks Limit/3 ticks Stop.. what that means was

From the actual price it would take 3 ticks above and below and those would be still be Limit .. to close to the actual price
After those 3 ticks I could place a Stop order..

and my DOM would be like Japhro pointed out

I think Joker meant that if you set the default # of ticks away from price that the system uses to determine whether it is a stop or limit order too wide, you eff yourself up. Keep it at zero I think, that way anything above or below price is dealt with in the correct way

Does Q Trader offer bracket orders where you can scale out at different prices all with the same stop? I used the demo but it seemed to be all-in all-out.

An example would be buying 2 contracts at 10, stop is at 7 for both contracts, and targets are 12 and 14.

Yes, possibly. It seems like a good platform for execution.
