Auto Stop + Targets in X_Trader

Hi all,

I have been considering switching over to TTs X_Trader. I have tried out the demo and it is quite nice, however I am having trouble getting it to automatically set a stop and targets when I enter a trade.

In Ninja I have it configured so that every entry is completed with a trailing stop and 3 targets and once my first target is filled I move my stop to entry + 1, obviously ninja enforces OCO on the stop as my targets get filled. with ATM it is VERY easy to do, my question is how do I get this done with X_Trader? Looking forward to hearing from you, thanks.

X_Trader API is listed as a requirement. I was thinking more along the lines of V7.0 for free, curious to see if I can use this plug-in with that version. It is very strange to me that you need to get a plug-in to accomplish this simple task. At about 10 times the cost of ninja, on a monthly basis, I would expect that this sort of functionality would be available to the user. It is hardly a "bell and whistle" these days. How is this functionality not part of the latest update of the software?

Well, enough of my rant....does anyone know of a simpler way to get this done with V 7.0 ? am I missing something? Looking forward to hearing from you, thanks again.

I've used the OCO plugin but it's not very smart. It will do the OCO orders even if I liquidate all my positions.

People who use X-trader are so one with the Depth Of Market screen that they just click on the left columns to exit/enter trades/move stops.

I also looked for those add-ons in the beginning but after a while you get so used to clicking here and there that you don't need it anymore.
