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
