Hi, I am trading using the built on sierra chart dom and the chart trading features. I am using OCO orders with an automatic established profit target and stop loss when I enter a trade. I am trading using two contracts. I want to know how can I scale out splitting the profit target line of two contracts into two different lines of a single contract each. I see that at the dom there is an option to enable scaling out, I enabled it, but I do not know how to split the profit target line at the trading chart. I also know we can increase or decrease the contract number of the line since it is a limit order, but I want to split the two contracs line into two lines of one contract each, so that I can cover first one and later on the second one.

Thanks in advance

This is not supported.

It is not possible to split an order.

You have to cancel the Attached Orders. Reconfigure the Attached Orders to set 2 Targets. And then resend them using the Send Attached Orders feature:

ok thank you very much.

Can I establish at the beginning two different targets for the profit target lines when I just enter the trade from the trade dom? If this is possible this could be another option, sending two or three diferent profit target orders or groups if I am using more than two contracts and establishing that at the trading dom even before entering the trade with the OCO order.
