ACSIL Price2 for Stop Limit order is different in trade activity log

Support Request:

Hi,

I have noticed that the NewOrder.Price2 is not set correctly when using a Stop limit order in acsil.

It is working in this case:
-Long: price1 = 30; price2 = 31;

Not working when trying to accomplish this:
-Long: price1 = 30; price2 = 29;

In trade activity log price2 = 31; While I use my Message log to output the price2 just before the BuyEntry order is given, which shows 29 as the price2.

When using the Stop-Limit Order Limit Offset manually this order works fine.

I can not figure out what is wrong. I will put a simple code example together tomorrow and see if I can show this is actually happening.

It was not intended to set Price2 in this way where it is lower for a Buy stop order.

So if it is not working, it is not supported.

We do not need any further information.

Hi,

This logic stills seems effective as of today, it is impossible to have a negative offset using ACSIL on a stop limit.

You guys still holding on this ? It seems strange that if you want to gain a couple ticks, you can input negative offsets in the chart order manager, but not in ACSIL ?

Thanks

There is the Triggered Limit order type which will do what you want which can be used from ACSIL both as a parent order and as an Attached Order. We will update the documentation with usage.

We currently see that the Triggered Limit type cannot be used as an Attached Stop order in ACSIL but that will be supported in 1884.
