OCO orders, set Limit and Stop Limit automatically

Is there a way to set a default limit and stop limit when using OCO orders so I don't have to manually enter the amount every single time?

EX:

I place an OCO order to buy limit = 1.00, I want to automatically have the CLOSE limit to be base +0.50 and stop limit to be base -0.20

TIA

just figured it out. For those that are wondering about this

Save an order template. right click subgraph> buy custom > the name of the order template you used.

sorry, brother ... I'm not familiar with TOS.... In Ninja , I use ATM strategies that automatically setup
targets and stops. OCO is just a given.

thanks regardless. in ToS (and I'm pretty sure all other platforms), you can create your own order template.

Whenever you want to make a trade (in ToS at least), just right click the subgraph > buy custom > the name you saved your template as.

Shaves a few seconds off your order execution.

Yes, I'm sure that is the NinjaTrader ATM equivalent.

I couldn't imagine entering the market without a set plan of risk and targets. I have several setup for all
types of scenarios, because as we know, the markets change daily ... if not hourly

In ToS, Click ActiveTrader tab, you will see templates there, works in similar way as in NinjaTrader.
