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,

forAUS

    • EUR/USD Price, Chart, and Analysis The Euro remains under pressure from the US bond market. Retail traders remain long EUR/USD but the outlook is mixed. The yield on the benchmark UST 10-year continues to move higher and is now within 10 basis points of levels last seen in January 2020. The latest move higher in yields was prompted by commentary from Federal Reserve governor Christopher Waller who said yesterday that if inflation remained at its current elevated level, then interest rates hikes may need to be bought forward to dampen down price pressures. Governor Waller also said that the Fed should start cutting back its bond purchases (tapering) in November. The markets are currently pricing a 25bp rate hike in the US in September next year with another 25bps fully priced in by December 2022. In contrast, the ECB is seen hiking rates by 10bps in September. The daily EUR/USD chart remains weak despite the 100 pip bounce back over the last few days. All three simple moving averages are negative with the 20-/50-day sma cross at the end of September accelerating the move lower. The pair are currently back above the short-dated sma, which may provide some support, but a move back below would suggest that the recent 1.1525 low would come under pressure again. EURO (EUR/USD) DAILY PRICE CHART OCTOBER 20, 2021 If we look at the weekly EUR/USD chart we can see that the pair are now in a range defined by the 50% and 38.2% Fibonacci retracement levels produced by the January 2017 – February 2018 22 big figure rally. This zone looks set to hold leaving 1.1710 as resistance to any further push higher. EURO (EUR/USD) WEEKLY PRICE CHART OCTOBER 20, 2021 Retail trader data show 63.39% of traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 1.73 to 1. The number of traders net-long is 2.03% higher than yesterday and 1.99% lower from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 2.08% higher than yesterday and 7.44% lower from last week. We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests EUR/USD prices may continue to fall.Positioning is less net-long than yesterday but more net-long from last week. The combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a further mixed EUR/USD trading bias. What is your view on EUR/USD – bullish or bearish?   By Nick Cawley, Strategist, 20th October 2021. DailyFX
    • UK Government Already Preparing For Another Lockdown. “The member of the Government’s Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage) said the UK is about to enter “an extended peak” of infections and hospitalisations, which are in danger of pushing the NHS beyond breaking point and could force the Government to re-introduce restrictions over the school half term period at the end of next month,” reports inews. “Boris Johnson is also believed to be prepared to re-introduce mask wearing and social distancing inside public spaces and on transport as early as this month in a move designed to stem hospital admissions and prevent the UK’s fourth lockdown,” states the report.

    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY gain ground, yet questions remain EUR/USD, GBP/USD and USD/JPY continue to move higher, although recent intraday gains could falter given key resistance up ahead. Source: Bloomberg   Forex United States dollar EUR/USD USD/JPY GBP/USD Japanese yen  Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Wednesday 20 October 2021 EUR/USD rallies into Fibonacci resistance EUR/USD has managed to rebound into the 61.8% Fibonacci level this week, with the price currently caught between trendline support and Fibonacci resistance. The wider trend does show the potential for another bearish turn before long, although a break below $1.1571 would bring greater confidence of that bearish turnaround. To the upside, resistance comes in the form of $1.1667 and $1.1701, although a push through $1.1755 would ultimately be required to negate this recent downtrend. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD recovery continues with key resistance up ahead GBP/USD has been regaining lost ground of late, with the pair rising into a fresh one-month high yesterday. From an intraday perspective, we have a clear uptrend playing out since the late-September lows. However, with a wider trend of lower highs, a break through $1.3913 would ultimately need to come back into play. Nonetheless, it makes sense to expect further upside until we see the price break out of this intraday trend. Thus a decline through $1.3709 would be required to bring the bears back into prominence for this pair. Source: ProRealTime USD/JPY back at major resistance level USD/JPY has managed to rise back into the crucial ¥114.74 resistance level, which represents the peaks established back in November 2017 and October 2018. A break up through this level brings expectations of further gains for this pair. With a clear intraday uptrend in play, a break below the ¥113.88 level would be required to signal a potential move away from resistance. Source: ProRealTime
