[User Discussion] - Using attached orders to ADD to your position

Support Request:

I was wondering if it's possible to have two entry orders sent when your spreadsheet Buy Entry rule is true - perhaps one for 50 shares at market, and another for 50 shares at a lower or higher limit price, like an attached order, but to add to the existing position instead of exit it.

If that's not possible with attached orders, is it possible any other way?

Yes, this is possible. You will need to use Allow Multiple Entries in Same Direction. Please see:

I have that option set to "Yes." What I want to do is have my signal send the initial entry, then simultaneously (or shortly after) send another order to ADD to the position based on %-change from entry, if that level is reached.

I can do exactly that with attached orders, but only to CLOSE the position, not ADD to it.

So far all I can figure out is for the system to generate another buy order when my buy rule is true again, which may or may not coincide with the parameters I'm looking for above.
