All Orders Separate

I use the Chart Trade Window. I have a preset Target/Stop and quantity. If I am already in a position and add another, I want each entry/target/stop to maintain separately. Currently if I order a 2nd position SC combines the entries and adjusts the stops. Also it seems to affect if I use BE. How do I set the program so that each entry and its attached orders are treated totally separate? I have searched the trade settings and have not found the solution. thanks

You need to disable Scale In:
Basic Trading and the Trade Window: Main/C >> Menu >> Orders >> Support Scale In (chart specific)
For the most reliable, advanced, and zero cost futures order routing, use the Teton service:

I reviewed and disabled Scale In/Out. That seems to keep the attached orders in their respective places but it still combines the entries into one position at a calculated price. That in turn seems to create a problem using the BE button. I informed you incorrectly in the original request. I have both the Chart Dom and Chart Trade Window open and attached to the chart. I usually place the orders on the Chart Dom. They are normally limit entry orders. I use the Chart Trade window to Flatten and BE. That is only if I choose to make those adjustments. I don't know if this makes a difference. I checked for Chart Dom settings and couldn't find anything that seemed relevant there. Is there a setting that keeps each respective order totally separate? Thanks.

That is utterly ridiculous. A professional trading platform (and perhaps the most customazible) that does not let you know the entry levels of different trades, and doesn´t let you know to which trades the stops and targets belongs to, that is unbelievable...

Imagine trying to adjust stops and targets in the dark, imagine you have a trade in the money, then you wanna pyramid on a pullback. After that you adjust the stop of the first entry to below the last pullback (where you made the second entry), now you have two stops clustered and you don´t know which is which, you open another position and then now it is a mess, three stops and targets and you don´t have a clue to which order they belong, and on top of that you don´t know the entry levels of the latest trades.

Even MT4 shows you the different entry levels with their IDs, and you can easily see to each order the stops and targets belongs to.

The Position line is the average price of all of the order fills which make up that position and there are different calculation methods you can select. Refer to:
Trading Information Windows: How Average Price for Positions Is Calculated and Used

And you can also display order fills on the chart as well showing you the exact entry prices:
Chart Trading and the Chart DOM: Displaying Order Fills on the Chart

This should give you what you want.

Thanks for replying.

Ok I think I can work with the "display order fills¨, but still there is no way of knowing to which order the stops and targets belong to because they have no IDs, after you trail a couple of them and cluster them, you easily lose track of which order you are managing.

Happy new year.

Please add an option to add order ID tags to the targets and stop losses lines.

I would be happy if we could see the IDs on the stops and targets by hovering the cursor over them, if that is easier to do.

But seriously, this is a very basic feature that should be there...
