  3. close trade button

    Add a quick button for close trade and canceling OCOs-- if I'm short and have resting stop/target and need to close trade quickly with the buy/sell button it leaves my working orders. This causes problems in volatile markets. The way the "flat" button is coded now is worthless for getting out of a market fast. Need a quick close and cancel button.

  4. Enable multiple targets for bracket orders

    Example: place a 2-lot bracket order via HOT. One target is n ticks, other target is 2n ticks.

  6. Add ability to trade using the keyboard in HOT

    Up/down arrows should move selection of price
    With no price selected, right/left arrows should buy/sell market
    With price selected, right/left arrows should place limit/stop orders 

    Add ability to select an order, then use kb for cancel and modify price

  8. In addition to the Buy/Sell buttons, TDAmeritrade has a "Reverse" button.

    I'm a day trader and I need a quicker way to reverse my position. The market could change direction 3 or 4 times within a minute.

  9. quick change to custom bracket

    allow for +/- or enter number right off the screen to modify the TP/SL without actually going into the bracket settings window for more efficiency.

  12. remove confirmations when using One-Click order entry

    Under the preferences, we are able to turn on "one-click". However, the confirmation is still enabled. which makes it a two click process.

    This is also true when canceling the order.

    Please remove the confirmation to make this a true one click function

  13. Add a Second Logout Confirmation .

    These working orders I forgot to cancel for sell and stop. It is killing me.

    I think it will be a better idea to add something like “Are you sure you want to log out? There is still working orders”. This message only pops up only when you have working orders.

    I lost about $500 thinking I close everything which I didn’t.

  16. on the DOM ladder, can you total up both sides of orders placed? Some fast moving markets are impossible to keep up with in my head

    On the DOM ladder, can you add up the total orders placed for both buy and sell? Some markets like gold move so fast there's no way to get a feel for this in my head. It should be a simple spreadsheet type calculation that takes minimal resources?

  19. Auto Liquidate

    We are looking to create a column on the Accounts screen: "Cancel & Liquidate All Positions for all markets" with a button that can be clicked next to each account. This would save us valuable seconds as compared to having to locate the account on the list, search for it on the top right, wait for the search to load, click on the account from the search screen to open the positions window and then click to cancel/liquidate each position/market individually.

    FYI, the screenshot shows a custom formula for displaying accounts losing 70%+ of their account value. We would like…
