User @Misjo asked in chat this morning how to do this. So here's a quick video, posting here to add to the shared knowledge base. Question was: How to set an order so that if the price of a stock broke above an upper range limit that it'd go long and if it broke below a lower range limit it'd go short. Added that if one triggers, it cancels the other. Set Upper Range as: - Stop Order, Price is the "Up to" portion of the order (e.g. fill me up to this amount. Can also be a StopType: Market to not worry about this). - Trigger Price: The price at which you want this order to fire. - Hit "Long" button. Set Lower Range as: - Stop Order, Price the "Down to" portion of the order (e.g. fill me down to this amount, can also use a Stop Type: Market) - Trigger Price: The price at which you want this order to fire. - Hit "Short" button. Once range is set, open Open Orders window (Trades > Open Orders) and right-click one of the pending orders, select "Trigger Order" and then when the Triggers window pops up, hit the tab "Cancel Order." On the that tab, select the corresponding order you want to cancel (if we are doing the LONG portion, we'd have the option to select the SHORT portion). Do the same for the other Open Order.
