An AutoOCO is an order that consists of three components: a Trigger order and the two components of a traditional OCO Order that are held on our server, and when the Trigger order is filled, the OCO order (consisting of a Limit order and a Stop order) is activated and consequently submitted to the exchange and when one side of the OCO is filled the other will cancel. This is a helpful order type as it allows the user to have the initial order protected automatically after it is filled with an OCO order.

  1. Tap here to set your Lot size.
  2. To enter an Auto OCO Tap on the Defaulted limit (L) order type on your Trading toolbar, then select the AOCO option from the dropdown and the AOCO color will turn orange and the Limit Will stay Orange as well. Then tap in the blue bid column to enter a buy or the red column to enter a sell.
  3. Then set the number of tics away from the order that you want your limit to be placed. To do this tap on the box labeled L to bring up the menu to set the tics for the limit order.
  4. Then set the number of tics away from the order that you want your Stop to be placed. To do this tap on the box labeled S to bring up the menu to set the tics for the stop order. Note the T next to the Stop, tap on this to change it to orange and this will designate that the stop will be a trailing stop.

  1. Note that the initial order is a two lot and the limit and stop are set to 5 tics which is the distance the orders will be submitted from the initial fill price. Also note that the T(Trail) Button is also active this means that the stop order will trail the market 5 tics.
  2. Tap on the bid or offer to submit your order and your order will display as working in the MYB or MYO column. The limit and stop orders will be held on the server until the original order is filled.

You can view your orders by going to the Orders Tab.
