  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  11. Repeating OPO Bracketed Order

    I would like to ask for a enhancement to be added to the compound order (bracketed ?) feature

    At present the order when executed places another order with a stipulated number of ticks

    I would like an order which continuously places another order after the previous order executes

    ie: buy 250, sell 300, buy 250, sell 300 -- etc

    I trade index futures which often trade within a range.
    See the attached screenshot of March 4 2020.
    Such an order feature would save missed trades

  14. Order Fill Comments

    The order comment field is available when placing an order. It is very helpful.

    However, I would also like the ability to add a comment to a filled order.
