Click Trader

How does it work?


Click Trader will place a new entry order or move an existing order based on holding down a hot key and clicking the mouse at the desired price. If holding the Long Entry hot key a StopMarket/StopLimit order will be placed if the price clicked is above the current price and a limit order if the clicked price is below the current price. If holding the Short Entry hot key a StopMarket/StopLimit order will be placed if the price clicked is below the current price and a limit order if the clicked price is above the current price. If holding the Order Change hot key open entry orders will be moved to the clicked price and ATM stop and target orders will be moved depending on the price clicked. When in a long position, if the price clicked is above the current price the target will be moved, if the price clicked is below the current price the stop will be moved. When in a short position, if the price clicked is above the current price the stop will be moved, if the price clicked is below the current price the target will be moved. StopMarket/StopLimit is determined by selecting the "Stop Order Type" parameter.
