    one click mouse trading on chart

    Can NT add a toggle button on chart trader about buy market and sell market buttons so that if that toggle button is "pushed in", the user is able to enter limit and stop orders by clicking left/middle/right mouse buttons on chart area similar to the chart trader on openecry platform. The hint text label shown on chart when the mouse trading on chart is enabled is very very helpful (I think CMS' Visual Trader or CMC's MarketMaker platform has the similar thing). In the current NT chart trader design, it is quite cumbersome to right click on chart area and select desired order from the pop-out menu. Also it would be a good idea to allow the user to configure the meaning of mouse action on chart when the mouse trading toggle button is "pushed in". Since one click mouse trading on DOM is possible, there is no reason one click mouse trading on chart is impossible.

          Agree with the recommended suggestions. Chart Trader has a lot of potential but really need a way to get an order to the exchange faster than is currently possible w/ existing approach.

            7 years have gone by since the last update on this request, and it seems it has not been implemented yet.
            I also find it quite cumbersome and time wasting to right click on the chart area and select the desired order from the pop-out menu. It coud be as simple as allowing the user to define combination keys (to prevent entering a trade by mistakenly clicking on the chart), for exemple Ctrl-B for Buy Limit and Ctrl-S for Sell Limit. Once (and only when) those keys would be held down, a simple mouse click on the chart would trigger the limit order at the clicked value.
            I'm trying to find a way of doing that through code, but it does not look to be simple. Please let me know my options to achieve this. NT is a great product but this feature is really missing. 7 years is a lot of time!!!
            Thanks.
