Strategy Manager

Click the clip0090 icon to launch Strategy Manager


Strategy Manager allows you to define simple exit strategies to be placed when an order is filled.




Strategy ID - the name for this strategy (will appear in Trade window on Depth & Sales)

Additional Orders - how to handle additional orders (after the first fill)

oAdd to existing stops & targets - add new exit orders to the ones that have already been created (even if they have been moved)

oCreate new stops & targets - create new stop & target orders according to the exit rules


Exit Rules

In this version, only 1 set of exit rules can be input.

Qty - enter a fixed quantity for the exit orders or leave blank to create exit orders for all fills

Stop Ticks - number of ticks away from the entry price that you would like to place the stop order. Leave blank for no stop

Stop Type - the type of stop to use

oStop - Regular Stop Order

oStopLimit - Stop Limit Order

oStopVol - Volume Stop Order (triggers when the limit order depth at that price is less than or equal to the Stop Volume)

Offset - Number of ticks offset for a Stop Limit Order

Stop Volume - Limit order qty to trigger the Volume Stop

Target Ticks - number of ticks away from the entry price you would like to place a target limit order. Leave blank for no limit

OCO - Check if you want the order to be OCO. Note that we follow the FOCCA OCO rule. If the provider does not cancel other order on cancel (e.g. CQG), then Jisgaw will cancel the other order locally.


Note that all orders are sever side with the exception of strategies that contain Volume Stops. Volume Stops are processed by the platform and are not server side orders. Also if an OCO contains a Volume Stop, that is also processed by the platform.

Strategy File Location
