Bracket orders or contingent orders

Clicking the Buy or Sell buttons in the chart opens the order ticket. This trader is placing a market order. By selecting "Add Contingent Orders" he instructs the platform to automatically place a target and a stop order after he launches his market order. These are the horizontal red lines. It is possible to slide these orders in the chart.

In this example the trader places the stop loss order on a support level. When one of the orders is executed, the platform automatically cancels the other order. This is called 'OCO', one cancels other.

Semi-automated and automated orders

In semi-automated trading the trader opens the position manually and instructs the platform to close the position automatically when his criteria are met. In automated trading the platform opens and closes positions automatically.
