    How to you put a stop on an ENTRY ORDER?

    Walker, quick question.. hope you can help.

    How can i attach a stop loss order to an entry order. For example, if overnight there is a breakout and price hits my entry order, i want to have a stop loss order on this new position.

    Before the new regulations with the old platform (a couple months ago) there was a clear way to put a stop loss on an entry order.

    Now what to do?
    Thanks!

    Hey ! good question,

    If you are using an international account with our UK ltd branch, you can simply use the advanced menu when setting up your entry.

    If you are trading with our US llc branch. You will need to use our OCO order entry system.

    Let me know if this helps. I will come back later today with some direct links to examples.

    There was no link included here.. unless I'm missing something.

    Also, I'd appreciate it if you could provide a direct procedure for doing this, as I can't see how to do it using OCO.

    Thanks!
