Hi Juliano,

Please see a post here that outlines how to accomplish protecting an open position.

You can enable simulated orders through the right click context menu in any order entry window. More information on simulated orders is available here:

Right click in the chart trader area > check Simulated Order. This may help from the chart trader section of help guide:

Simulated Stop Orders (Simulated Order)
To submit a simulated stop order (entry and exit NOT stop loss; simulated stop loss orders are enabled via a stop strategy), you must enable simulated order mode via the right mouse click menu and selecting the Simulated Order menu item, or use the shortcut key CTRL+A. All stop orders placed while this indicator is lit will be submitted as a simulated stop order.

One of the powerful features of simulated stop orders is that you can submit a "negative limit stop limit" order. This means that you can place an order where the limit price is better than the stop price. As an example, you may want to buy on strength indicated by a move up to a particular price. Once that occurs, you want to enter at a better price using a limit order several ticks below (if you are buying) the stop price. Any stop limit order submitted with a negative limit offset is automatically a simulated order and will be held on your PC until the stop is triggered or cancelled.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight.
