Trading defaults:

  • Account – allows to select a default account for trading;

  • Symbol – allows to select a default instrument for trading;

  • Order type – allows to select a default type of order for trading:

    • Market – an order to buy or sell a security at the best available price immediately;

    • Limit – an order to buy or sell a security at specified price or better;

    • Stop – an order to buy or sell a security when its price surpasses a particular point, thus ensuring a greater probability of achieving a predetermined entry or exit price, limiting the investor's loss or locking profit;

    • Stop limit – an order to be executed at a specified price (or better) after a given stop price is reached. Once the stop price is reached, the stop-limit order becomes a limit order to buy (or sell) at the limit price or better;

    • Trailing stop:

      • Sell trailing stop order sets the stop price at a fixed amount below the market price on the trailing offset. As the market price rises, the stop price rises by the trail amount, but if the stock price falls, the stop loss price doesn't change, and a market order is submitted when the stop price is hit;

      • Buy trailing stop orders are the mirror image of sell trailing stop orders.

    • OCO (One cancels other) – an order containing two parts, if one part is executed, then the other part is automatically canceled;

    • IOC (Immediate or cancel) – an order or its part will be immediately executed;

    • GTD (Good till date) – an order will be cancelled on a specified date, if not executed, or will remain active until a contract expiration;
