Profit Target with X_trader


can someone please explain me how to use profit target in x_trader?

I downloaded the OCOtrader plug in and the PS trader plug in. According to forums, it is the OCO that I need?

I install it, what do I do next? Thanks!

finally got time to figure it out. In case it is of any help to anyone of you: it is the OCO Trader. Just install it, launch it from Plug Ins. The LIMIT checkmark is for Take Profit, the STOP checkmark for Stoploss. In Preferences you can change the defaults to whatever you like. You can also remove either one of those and trade with only stop loss.

I usually enter take profit before I am in trade so that I have a better place in queue, but in case I am away from computer it is helpful to have this plug in installed.

But be careful, if you decide to close your position earlier, it will think you are entering a trade and it will put your default orders on the DOM, even through you are FLAT and it will not remove the old TAKE PROFIT. Maybe there is a fix to this, but just pay attention to your pending orders and remove the ones you dont need and you should be fine.

I agree with the 'work with ADL' thought. I stood in the pits 20+ years ago and outside of the eye contact / noise factors, I have all the floor advantages imaginable built into adl and much, much more. adl can do the work of a local in the pit with multiple clerks arbing for him.

Even better...TT shows you how to build these order types.
