ACSIL: how to enable/disable an attached triggered stop

Support Request:

Hi,

I have some confusion about handling attached orders through ACSIL. My understanding is that if i cancel the attached stop => i automatically cancel/exit all related orders...basically exit the position (if i was filled).

I would like to be able to add a stop to a position (on or after order fill) and also cancel the stop (also after order fill) without exiting the position itself.

is this doable through ACSIL? can it be done for triggered trailing stops as well?

thanks

When you cancel a Stop Attached Order, it has no affect on the position or even the related Target order. Refer to:

got it...cancelling the attached stop of a WORKING ORDER will cancel the whole thing.

but how to ADD a triggered stop to an order that has already filled in ACSIL?
