Attached Orders

I am banging my head in trying to understand the Attached Orders. I only chart USD based pairs and I need to setup "MIT" and "Stop Stop" parameters. I would like the MIT to be $240.00 and the Stop Stop to be $120.00. Is it best to use the "Price" or the "Ticks" or the "Percentage" and how do I enter my amounts into the "Trigger Offset" boxes for Price, Ticks and Percentage? Is there anything else that I need to do to get the Attached Orders to work? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated

What does "Stop Stop" mean?

Attached Orders do not use actual currency profit or loss values.

We would recommend using "Price" but you have to enter an actual price offset value. Not a dollar amount.

When you say that you have to enter an actual "price", but not a dollar amount, are you referring to the quote currency (i.e., Yen, Francs, Pesos, etc..) instead of the base currency (US Dollars)? So in the case of the currency pair USD/YEN, how would I enter a "stop price" of $120.00 USD or its equivalent (Yen), into the "Target Offset" box" Again, many thanks for all your help.

Yes, this would be in the quote currency which is going to be what the chart itself is charting.

We cannot answer your question because Attached Orders do not support specific profit and loss values. There is no way to specify them.
