question to MBT platform users

Postby lukx » Wed Apr 01, 2009 4:41 pm

I'm using right now Oanda platform thanks to it's automatic settings.
I basically can set it to take profit of 6 pips and stop loss to 7 pips after each trade I take. SO basically I just look at metatrader chart and one click on buy or sell on oanda and it's done. I was testing MTB platform but there i noticed that I have to set manually the price I want to take profit or sell loss. Can I set it like oanda ?

lukx,

Yep. Go to Preferences and change it. You want a TTO order. Set your inputs for stop and target.

hmm... I did it but it doesn't seems like it's exiting the trades when it hits my settings.

lukx,

are you placing a "market" order or a "market with TTO" order when you place your entry? You will need to change it to the latter for this to work. You can right click on your order type to change it.

Hmm... I used market + TTO I guess I will have to play with this platform because it's quite complicated. I prefer graphic thing than just a lot of numbers everywhere :)

lukx,

So why not use Oanda? No offense to Avery, but I've never had a problem with bucket shops :)
