I believe placing a stop order on the trading service and let the order get filled when price reaches the pre-set price is faster than having SC send a market order to the trading service after the pre-set price is touched.
For example I want to place a long stop order one tick above previous bar's high when certain rules are met, how do I do this? Thanks!

For a buy entry:
-set J71 to 'S'
-with a formula, set the price level in J22
-the formula in K3 is the trigger.
