Questions for spreadsheets

I have constructed a list of questions I was hoping to take up via phone call.

But if these can all be answered in a ticket,
I'll ask them here:

1). How many ways can I turn on and off an auto-trade system? I know I can enable the auto trade option under trade.
& I know I can use the disable autotrade cell in the spreadsheet. Can I use a horizontal line, trendline, or alert of some sort to turn on / off autotrade?

2). Can auto-trade be enabled on only one symbol?

3). Can I specify the type of order (buy ask / buy bid)
in the spreadsheet formula (K3 / j22 / j71) ?
(I know I can specify Buy Market or Buy Limit - J71 / J73).

4). Can I specify how many contracts are traded via the spreadsheet formula?

Thank you again!

Thank you very much!

For question number two -
are you referring to the "disable auto trade = true/false" cells?
Or is there a way to quickly turn on and off the auto trade on a single symbol?
like there is w/ the 'trade >> enable autotrade'?
