Buy/Sell Macro

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Very new here, hopefully the below makes sense? (unsure if even a possibility as yet)

Wrapping my head around the trading platform and obviously "paper" trading in the demo account, one thing so far I cannot workout though is how to macro a buy/sell order and a stop limit?

Say I want to buy at (random numbers here) at $100.50, so I only want to buy if it trades opens above $100.50 and only wan't to pay up to $100.70 limit (to get quantity filled) for x number of stock, so if it gaps open the next day or quickly at the start of the market I am in before it jumps and I've negated even small amounts between the time/profit margin lost by typing this out, is there a macro or ability to click in values from the platform? And similarly with the selling for price and or x quantity?

Happy to manually enter quantity values (if thats the only way) but rather/ (or set 10/50/90% etc) for the buy and sell orders like a shift+1 (10% buy at x price (hover over fill price at moment) and shift+2 (sell 10% at x price)?

I did try and search for other posts relating but didn't find to much (happy to be linked to self learn)

Appreciate any advice.

Thanks,

    • Hi @GRINSA @joejones1905, Unfortunately this function is not available in the share dealing accounts. You can access your daily statement to see at what price level you bought or sold shares. I will forward your feedback to the relevant department. Thank you - Arvin
    • Video presentation from Dr McCullough who has been posting on covid since the start. Reveals some truly concerning information on the current situation re; covid and the vaccines. - Looks at independent safety oversight (none). - Treatment protocols early and late (officially there is still no early treatment) - CDC reporting (misleading systematic asymmetrical bias) - Delta and legacy alpha data (99% of cases are now delta) - Major conflicts of interest. Really horrifying that this worldwide trial with intended 100% participation has no safety oversight at all, there is no one to stop it as the data on the vaccines is increasingly disturbing. Scientific, covers the important points of many research papers, fast paced but clear and pointed. The most important video I've seen on covid and the vaccines, covers a lot of ground, absolutely must watch. (1h:50min) Pub'd 24 Sept 2021.   The Covid testimony of Dr Peter McCullough – Part 1: Cancelled for telling the truth - The Conservative Woman  
    • I'd go with that - I'm working off the Interaction of the Interest Rate cycle and the Stock Market cycle - Stock turned Inflationary from a cycle perspective late 2016, from deflationary which started 2000, for that 16 year cycle everything deflationary has happened and the action to try to create inflation - Robert Pretcher (Elliott Wave International) wrote "Conquer the crash" in 1999 - although he is/was wrong on the stock market outlook, the rest of the book was pretty much spot on from a central bank/economic aspect tackling deflationary pressures etc From a cyclic point of view the stock market cycle from 2000 basically repeated the 1929 crash cycle, x cycles back in the same stock market cycle - last time BoE Int rates were depressed for 22 years was from 1929 until 1951 which coincided with said stock market cycle  We've a generation of people who think Interest rates are always this low! the shock should be in the property market and especially anyone with a Buy to Let Investment property that has got a bad/poor yield as well as mortgaged to the hilt - they'll more than likely see negative returns once taxation and costs running it are taken into account, which will be good for FTB's as they'll have a nice supply of affordable housing stock to pick from as the rise to normality for Int rates should then cause a dip in the property market (possibly)  Different rules apply to the markets during deflationary and Inflationary cycles and you find that central banks aren't on it in terms of getting it right which is why they got caught out in 2003 / 2009 and now with Inflation to which they [BoE] should react to Inflationary pressures by raising rates even though we all know for some time Inflation has been occurring Fun times
