Has anyone see this done, or think it can easily be done.

I want to be able to move my Stop loss or Take profit orders by hitting a hotkey combination. Order will move to the current value set by the position of the mouse pointer.

This method should be much faster and easier that clicking on current order, dragging and dropping

Order is open by trader
Opening SL and TP are set by ATM strategy.
Trader monitor the position and when trade move in his favor, points to a price in the chart.
By hiting a key combination (hotkey) the SL order will move to the price currently being pointed by the mouse.
(one hotkey will be designated for moving SL, another hotkey to be designated for the TP)
