    Changing position size with managed orders

    Let's say I have strategy logic that is going to ask for a position between zero and +5 contracts. Is it possible via managed orders to move between say a position of +3 and +4 contracts via a market order? If so, how is it done? Some variation of EnterLong()? And will automatically placed stops created via SetStopLoss update to the new position size?

    Hello The Big D,

    Are you trying to scale into a position?
    If so, you should use separate orders for each quantity set.
    If you wanted to scale in to a position of 9, 3 contracts at a time, then use 3 orders with a quantity of 3 each.

    Are you asking if you place a market order when a position is already open?
    Yes, you can do that, you would need to ensure the EntriesPerDirection is high enough to allow the orders.
