yeah but there's a slim chance if you walk away from the computer or don't close out the limit or stop after the other has been filled you could get stuck in an unprotected trade if the market reverses. That's the nightmare. If you're scalping the market could fill your limit or stop and suddenly reverse to fill the other order before you can cancel it if there is high volatility. I know it's rare, but I'm sure it could happen especially if you're distracted by something outside of trading. If you're a more of a long term trader lets say an hourly trader odds are you probably aren't by your computer the whole time to cancel the remaining limit or stop. Even a vps can't save you with this. But hey, I don't care about the price, I just think if they're going to give the free version then ocos should be the last thing they hold back from the customers. I can't really see any other reason that they do this other then to give customers incentive to lease or buy the product. It's very confusing why they'd limit such a crucial feature to trading and not something less dangerous to your capital.

The following user says Thank You to Itchymoku for this post:
^This to me is factored into the true cost of ninja trader direct edition even though it is free. Honestly there is a whole laundry list of things that could be simply improved with Ninja trader, especially Ninja trader replay, but bickering about it gets us nowhere. Despite all of Ninja trader's flaws it still has an impressive and easy to use interface which will always be regarded in my mind as the platform I loved to start with trading futures in the beginning. It holds a certain level of nostalgia to me. Even though the replay feature frustrates me with certain flaws I haven't been able to find a better one. So, please if anyone knows of a superior replay software let me know as I'm constantly looking for new strategies to use in combination with already existing ones. Thank you.
