Close Outstanding Orders When Position is Closed

This is for people that like to bracket their orders but either don’t have access to OCOs or find them cumbersome to use. With this checked, when a position is closed, all outstanding orders on that instrument will also be closed. This is especially useful on thin instruments like CL where the order might be above/below what you see on the screen and where there is a chance of forgetting they are there.

 

Clear Current Trades On New Position

When a new position is detected for the selected account, the Current Trades column will be cleared if this box is checked. The clear will only be done when you go from flat to having a position on. The clear will not be done when you add to a position. If the “All Windows” box is also checked, then the current trades will be cleared on all open Depth & Sales windows.

 

Re-Center On New Position

When a new position is detected for the selected account, the Depth & Sales will be recentered if this box is checked. The recenter will only be done when you go from flat to having a position on. The recenter will not be done when you add to a position. If the “All Windows” box is also checked, then the recenter will be done for open Depth & Sales windows.

 

Hide Account Name

Depth  & Sales shows the account name at the top of the screen. For people making recordings to YouTube, this creates a security issue. With this setting, you specify a number of digits at the end of the account number to hide. An account number of U273771 with 4 digits to hide will appear as U27****.
