Create and Transmit Chart Orders

ChartTrader is designed to instantaneously transmit orders created with a single click within the chart. Order parameters are picked up from the active order preset. Button actions and order defaults can be set from the Chart configuration page

Instantaneously transmit an order

  1. Open the chart Configuration page, and choose Buttons.
  2. Select a button and click Edit.
  3. Check the red Transmit order instantaneously checkbox and click OK.
  4. On the button panel, click the button you set up for instantaneous transmit to arm your cursor.

Note:  Any buttons set for instantaneous transmit will have an asterisk (*) next to their name.

  1. Move your cursor into the chart and position the broken blue (for Buy) or red (for Sell) line at the order price you want. Note that your exact price is displayed along the price axis.
  2. Click to transmit an order. Your order appears in the Quote panel, and the broken line becomes solid.

You can also create orders that do not transmit instantaneously.
