Hi, is there a function that allows me to do this? I have seen the 'Triggered Limit Order Entry' study but it doesnt seem to do what I want as price needs to trade through the trigger level first but this doesnt always happen even if i nominate the close - and is cumbersome.

I want to be able to quickly nominate the reference point for the order (usually the close or the high/low of the prior bar) then specify the # of ticks away from the reference point to place the order. Want to be able to adjust the # of ticks based on how the volatility changes throughout the day.

You really have to develop your own custom study to do this:
