Moving Stops in OEC Chart Trader

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if there is a way to move stops together when chart trading with OEC charts. When I enter an order that uses a strategy with two brackets enabled, my order gets filled and I have automatically two stops in place. As price moves and before it hits my first profit, (taking one of the brackets off the table), I need to move these stops, sometimes just a tick at a time. It is a tedious process as the chart is moving and easy to drop the position on the wrong line... and then I have to do the other one. I can only imagine if I had three brackets in play. I would think there would be a way to move these orders simultaneously.


If I remember right, Ninja has it so I just click on the new position and the order moves. The orders are together, so just one click. In OEC the orders are separate and I have to grab them one at a time, pick them up and drop them in the new place.


Hopefully there is a simple solution and I am just missing something obvious, (as is often the case with me).


Maybe a fan of a "less than stellar" football team can help me out here,:) (I am a Vikings fan, but only a fair weather fan, which we seem to be having this year so far).

I did not figure that out too on the chart, I just thought it was not able to


Working with the DOM is the way. I Forgot about the DOM when I started entering my orders on the charts. I can still enter the order on the chart and then move to the DOM to move the stops both at the same time with a little more surety. Moving them on the chart, together, as I said earlier, is just a bit tedious. Once I am down to my final bracket, I go back to moving the remaining stop on the charts. It is not as slick as Ninja, but it doesn't make my machine smoke either.
