yep, thats a good idea, but not available in NT i think.

this mouse-context-menue is just too big for fast usage in trading-action.

Those functions are not customizable with the Hot Key Manager, what you can do is use your keyboard:

Sell Limit= right click s + enter
Buy Stop= right click b + enter
Buy Stop Limit= right click ss + enter

It's not one button it's 2 but once you get confident it's faster

I always take my entries in the DOM. If you disable "Confirm order placement" you can enter trades with a single click.

nice trick , but a bit too much to push ...

some platforms have kind of a button-ladder near the current price, directly on the chart, to klick on + enter orders intuitivly. kind of a dom on the chart.
that can be handled very fast.

maybe a new coding - project for timmyB

waiting for timmyB, you can also use AutoHotkey - Free Mouse and Keyboard Macro Program with Hotkeys and AutoText and configure a one button procedure

Quoting 
Sell Limit= right click s + enter
Buy Stop= right click b + enter
Buy Stop Limit= right click ss + enter

thanX redratsal for pushing in that direction !

here is a little script as example how to do this with AutoHotKey :

 
Code
                            
!b::   ; >>  Alt   !B:: 


Click up right,
 
Send   b  Enter }

return 


^<::   ; >>  
strg   ^<::  

Click up right,
 
Send   s  Enter }

return 
This script example uses the following key-combination :

ctrl + < for Selling orders
alt + b for buying orders


if pressing : ctrl plus <
it sends these actions to Ninja :
- right mouseclick plus s plus ENTER

so it checks for your mouseposition at the moment you press the ctrl+<
and at this price-value it sends the sell-order out.

it has to be tested if these keys make sense
in case of ergonomics, its just a first example.

autoHotKey is really fast and worth to have a look at a bit deeper if its
really stable for using this in live trading, but i guess it is

maybe @monpere has some additional tips what to care for if working whith autohotkey. i think he also played with it yet.

here a small "action-video" :
2011-02-18_0810 - maximax07's library

you see, whereever you put your mouse and press the trigger-keys, the orders are sended out imediatly without having to do anything manualy.

Find attached the script with autohotkey:

z=sell limit
x=buy stop

I chose z and x they're easy to reach, if you want to change them just edit the file and replace z and x with other keys.
If you want the exe file without installing autohotkey just pm me. To disactivate the keys you will have to exit the application.
