automatically adjust stop loss size when adding shares

Question

Hey,

Example: 
I buy 100 shares at 10$ and put stop loss on the chart 100 shares 9.5$
Suppose I later add another 50 shares at 10.1$
Could the size of the stop loss adjust automatically to the position size? So in this example the stop loss size will be 150 automatically instead of 100

Reason for that is sometimes I might forget to change the stop loss size and easier than having to cancel the order and put it back in 

Thanks !

we cannot automatically do that - do not have automated trading.  You could do it semi-Auto - setup a hotkey that does stoploss on current position size. set it to cancel existing first. after filling the additional shares, hit the hotkey for stoploss adjustment.
