How to Create Custom Order Tickets

Setting up frequently used or favorite order tickets together in one window can give easy access to multiple approaches to buying, selling or closing orders. Below are the steps for creating and customizing your own order tickets.

1. Click Trading in the Main Menu

2. Select My Order Tickets from the drop down

Choose the pre-built Buy, Sell, Close order ticket to use as a starting point for your custom order tickets.

Alternately, in any order ticket click the Keep Window Open button to turn the individual ticket into an order bar which can contain multiple order tickets.

3. Remove any order ticket from the window

Click the delete (X) in any order ticket you want to remove while you build your custom order tickets. (Optional)

4. Add Order Tickets

Add as many Buy, Sell or Close tickets as you want in this set of custom order tickets. Click the Add Order Ticket icon

Choose the type of order ticket you want to add (Buy, Sell, Close-position). Repeat to add more than one order ticket.

5. Set the parameters of each order ticket to desired values

Each custom order ticket can be set to different parameters. Below is an example of four different custom tickets.

To set up the individual ticket parameters, set any or all of the fields:

  1. Quantity
  2. Order type
  3. Duration
  4. OCA
  5. Condition
  6. OTA
