    ok, can I recommend this for a future release? there can be any number of reasons that someone may want to change a strategy ex post facto.

    Jessica,

    That works.....what if I wanted to create a complex exit strategy for an open order w/o sl or tp.... since your directions mandate that "strategy" is set to "none," then i can't employ and strategy to an open order with no sl or tp, correct?

    Is there a way of doing this?

    If you have an open position without a strategy, you need to add a limit and stop order to protect the position.
    • Set strategy to none
    • Right click in the CHart Trader and enable OCO order
    • Then place a limit order where you want to exit at a profit
    • Then place a stop order where you want to exit at a loss
    • Then right click again and disable OCO order
    thanks, i'm gonna check that out..

    Edit: thanks so much, that worked!

    Ray,

    I must be missing something....if i cancel my bracket the only way i know to do to replace, say, a stop loss, is just to place another market order on the chart. right? Your link does not show me how to create another bracket. once i click on the "x" of the stop loss or take profit, the bracket is gone, but the order is still live and i see no way of making another bracket for that order - at least the same why i originally make the bracket?????

    Also, what happens if i create a number of trailing stops just for a single trade (i don't make a template for it, bec it's trade specific). If i later choose to modify it, i can't see any why to do that. Not only that, but if i forget how i set my parameters, I can't see any way to retrieve them since i did not make a template out of it.

    I hope you understand my questions and I appreciate your time.

    justme

    started a topic canceling bracket

    canceling bracket

    hi,

    If i make a bracket order, in other words, i enter the market with a take profit and a stop loss. now suppose I want to stay in the trade, but want to leave my take profit open. So i just want to cancel the take profit. how can i do that?

    now suppose i create a series of trailing stops, is it possible to modify them after i am in the trade?


    thanks,

    justme
