Hello
How can I send bracket orders (or OCO) from an Easylanguage strategy?

For example I want to put a Buy stop order at 10000 and, associated to this, a Sell stop order at 9900.
The sell order is activated only when the fist one has been filled.

I need them to be OCO orders because I want to send them to the broker (IB) and forget it. That way if the connection is lost the order will remain at the markets.

I know it can be placed by hand but I need to automatize it.

I don't know if I need to activate the intrabarodernegeration or just use orders such as
SetStopLoss . I've read that setStopLoss orders give fake results when optimizing.

thanks

Hi,

This appears to be the same topic as this prior thread:



So I am closing this new duplicate thread to avoid a split topic. You can post follow-up questions in the previous thread.
