Default Stop Limit Entry

How does a stop limit order for entry work in NT7? If I placed a sell stop limit away from the market (say 6E sell 1.3100) and the market is trading 1.3105. When the market trades down to my price how is the order filled/handled?

Thanks in advance.

cgian, once triggered by price the stop order portion would activate then the limit order - you would then join the q at this price level and wait for a fill, which can happen on a touch depending on q position and volume, but would be happening of course as price traded through.

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. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

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. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
