1st Triggers Sequence of OCO. Possible?

Hello All. I have been at this since last night and cannot figure out how to make this order happen. I am pretty sure it cannot be done from Active Trader, because the bracket orders are more limited there than in the trade tab, but I think it may be possible from the trade tab. Maybe not--I need to run this by some more experienced folk before I give up completely.

I think it would be pretty easy if there were a 1st triggers sequence of OCO order type, but that’s not an option, so it will take a workaround. Thanks to anyone who wants to dive in and give this a shot.

Trigger – Buy (2) @ Market

1st OCO
Sell (1) @ +1.00
Sell (2) @ -2.00 - Stop Loss, order complete

2nd OCO triggered if first target is met
Sell remaining (1) contract whenever price drops one tick (if not possible an alternative would just be sell @ +1.50.)
Sell (1) at entry price
