    Break Even, only if filled?

    Greetings,

    2 contract scenario:

    First contract target 4 ticks, move second contract to break even once target on first is hit. Basic!

    Here is my question:

    Is it possible to ONLY move that second contract to break even, ONLY if you are filled on the first?

    I have had numerous times the initial contract hit the 4 ticks and not fill, the stop is moved up, and I get stopped out.

    Thanks,
    Joseph

    Hello,

    Unfortunately the ATM strategy will not check to see if your first target was filled before moving your stop.

    You could work around this two different ways.

    1. Set the trailing point to 5 ticks such that price will have to break your first target before trailing
    2. do not set a stop strategy on the first target. This would cause only the 2nd contract to be stopped out but the first to remain active.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

      Is this in code, or in the DOM manually, using ATM?
