Order Entry

This category allows you to configure the necessary parameters for the Order Entry sidebar. Here, you can set the order size, show/hide order & position management buttons.

The Order Entry sidebar settings can be accessed through:

  • General settings in a specific trading panel (Chart, DOM trader, DOM Surface, TPO)

  • Right-clicking on the Order Entry sidebar -> Context menu -> Settings

  • Show Order Entry setting shows/hides the Order Entry sidebar.

  • Slim mode allows you to narrow the size of the Order Entry sidebar for a more compact view.

  • No labels setting hides the labels above each block in the panel for a more compact view.

  • Show additional order parameters. The setting is responsible for displaying extra order parameters that a trader can use if needed. The types of parameters can vary for each type of connection:

    - CQG includes an additional "Algorithmic" order parameter

    - Binance Futures has several additional parameters (Behavior for orders in different hedge modes, Post-only mode, Trigger price)

  • Reset quantity to default after an order was placed. The setting returns the order size to a previously saved size after each trade. For example, you set the default order size to 2 lots. After that, you increased the size to 3 lots for the current trade. Once the order with this size (3 lots) is placed, the platform will automatically revert the value to the previously saved size, i.e., 2 lots.

    Note: This setting only works if you have set a default order size value.

  • Quick quantity buttons. In the text block, you can modify existing trading buttons for quick switching between different order sizes. To add new buttons, simply enter new values using the separator β€œ;”.

Tip #1 You can add mathematical signs before the values to quickly increase, decrease, or reset the current value in the Quantity field.

To create multiple rows of Quick quantity buttons, you need to move the value to a new line in the text block.

  • Quick quantity buttons mode. This setting is exclusively used for crypto connections and determines the mode for calculating position volume. The setting has 3 modes: - Quantity mode, which sets the position size in an absolute value (1 lot, 2 lots, etc.) - Total mode, which sets the position size in an absolute value based on the total balance - Balance percent mode, which sets the position size as a percentage of the total balance

  • Show/Hide Order Entry buttons and controls. To hide/show trading buttons on the Order Entry sidebar, right-click in the panel and click "View" to select a button. Check the checkbox next to a button or control to show it, or uncheck to hide it.

You can also specify the display of necessary buttons on the panel through the general settings.
