Why does it seem so hard to create a bracket order in DAS?  Can I seriously not just enter a limit order with a profit target and a set stop loss or trailing stop all in one go? 

I'm sorry if this has been covered before but I'm frustrated right now and not having much luck with the info I'm finding.  Thanks in advance for any help.

I hear the frustration in ur above comment.  @Justin and @KyleK29 are resident experts on DAS and orders types/scripts, they will respond soon I hope.  i know just enough to confused myself.  Jus hang in until they see have time to respond.

It's possible. What you're asking for is a range order.

StopPrice=Price-0;DefShare=BP*0.97;Price=Ask-Price+0.01;SShare=10/Price;Share=DefShare-SShare;DefShare=DefShare+SShare;SShare=Share;Sshare=DefShare-SShare;Share=0.5*SShare;TogSShare;ROUTE=SMRTL;Price=Ask+0.05;TIF=DAY+;BUY=Send;DefShare=400;Price=Ask-StopPrice*2+Ask;TriggerOrder=RT:STOP STOPTYPE:RANGE LowPrice:StopPrice HighPrice:Price ACT:SELL QTY:POS TIF:DAY+

This will allow you to double click where you want your stop, enter a trade worth $10 (SShare=10/Price;) at the current price (it'll auto calculate the shares). And place a profit target at 2R (Price=Ask-StopPrice*2+Ask;)

Edit: I changed style type to Stop order and now it works...much gratitude to you Sir!!

 

Hi Justin, Thank you for the script. It doesn't seem to work for me though... on a $6 stock I clicked 10 cents below and used the script. It bought 90 shares but did nothing else.  Could this be because right now I am just on the 14 day demo? Other scripts I've found and attempted to use also have failed.

Ok, sigh, I take it back. I thought it worked, it buys shares and shows an active order but then when price hits the high or the low nothing happens. I give up for now on DAS. It just seems to be much too user unfriendly. Figuring out basic functions is not where I want to be spending my time. 

thanks again for the script though, hopefully at some point in the future I will be able to make it work.

Yes, not doing live trading, just trying to see if I want to go with DAS or not. So far, it certainly is fast but I'm feeling some pain with regards to the program usability
