Chart trading order filled abnormally

Recommended Posts

The last two days I have entered a long position with the trade ticket. Then I placed a target price using the C on the chart trader. after a few seconds it filled the order about the same price. I did not press any buttons on that chart or symbol.

clicking the C on the position capsule is same as selecting SELL (for long positions) and it just presets your QTY. it does not do anything with price. That gets set based on where you drop the capsule by clicking on the chart again.  are you by chance double clicking on the C?

I select LIMIT as order type then I click on the C then I place the order on the target price. Then after a few seconds it filled the order. I do this on many orders to set the target price using the chart trader.

you are using auto transmit, right?

turn it off. do it again

Does the capsule get placed at the right price?

If so, hit send.

does it fill at the incorrect price?

I am using auto transmit, I can't do it right now I do not have any trades.

 

I was Long MAT at 13.18 and wanted to set a target of 13.35 so I selected LIMIT and clicked the C then moved order to 13.35 then clicked it was fine there. THen it filled at 13.19
