Help with Trade Window

I was hoping someone could help me out. I don't know how to setup a Buy Stop and Sell Stop OCO order with different values of Profit Target and Stop Loss for each side of the stop.

I can do "OCO Buy Stop Sell Stop" - but this creates the same profit target and stop loss for each side.

I can do separate Buy Stop and Sell Stop orders with different Profit Targets and Stop Loss but then its not OCO.

Hoping someone can guide me with an example by attaching the Trade Window Screen.

Example:
Buy Stop: 3000
Profit Target: 3050
Stop Loss: 2950

Sell Stop: 2800
Profit Target: 2700
Stop Loss: 2850

Couple more questions:
1. Also, does anyone know how to specify the Price directly for the Profit and Stop rather than using Offset Type: Percent, Ticks or Price Offset.
2. Support I initiate a trade at 6pm EST and enter as "Day Order", does this get cancelled next day after market close i.e. 4:30pm EST or does it get cancelled same day at midnight?

This is not supported unless you create a custom trading study using ACSIL.


1.

For the Offset Type use Actual Price.

2. We do not know, you would have to ask the exchange.

Thank you for your reply. I don't see "Actual Price" as a dropdown option in "Offset Type".
Please see the image attached. I only see Percent, Ticks or Price Offset.

That makes no sense. It exists. It must be there. The option has been there for more than a year.

I agree it makes no sense, but I wouldn't be asking this question if its there. I am on version 2036. Please check from your end.

Hello, Sierra Chart can you please check from your end? I don't see "Actual Price" option on any of my Sierra Chart instances.

We now realize this has been in debug only. We really apologize for this. This feature has been out for more than 8 months now but never available to users. We will make it available in the next release.
