I have been trying to figure out how to set up my stop strategy. I want a 4 contract position. 12 tick stop. after 6 ticks sell half the position and move stop to minus 6 from minus 12. how can I set that up?

On the attachment you sent is it possible to have the stop being moved to -6 from -12 is not moved unless I get the first target filled? I was doing some sim and the price went up 6 ticks never filled my target but the stop still moved.

Refer to the documentation here for Move to Breakeven for Stop:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?page=doc/AttachedOrders.html#MoveBreakevenForStop

You need to change the Type to OCO Group Triggered.
