Allow use of GTCLimit with buy limit orders

Postby Jaded » Thu May 17, 2012 1:57 pm

Ok.. This is a tricky one.

What I would like is to be able to use GTCLimit as a stop gain, but use it with buy limit orders. I know you can't do this on the first day held, but is there a way to somehow make the GTCLimit conditional on daysheld, something like $daysheld > 1 AND GTCLimit(10) to have a 10% stop gain, but it wouldn't kick in until after the first day of holding the stock to avoid the EOD data issue.

So what do you think? Possible? I think it would be valuable, as right now we can't use GTCLimit in an exist string with buy limit orders.

Sorry, but I can't think of a way that can be done. It isn't currently possible to place conditions on a GTC formula. However, such a feature is already on the list.
