How to add a SL or PT using the C2 QuickTrade screen?

To change a stop loss (or profit target) already in place, hit REPLACE next to the working order in the trade blotter. 

Of course, you can also just add a stop or limit order to a trade after it has been opened.

If you have a long position and need to enter a brand new stop loss (i.e. you never entered one to start, before opening the position), enter:

SELL TO CLOSE AT STOP XXX

 

To use an example. Let's say you are long 10 NZDCAD.

To enter a stop loss of 0.865, submit this order:

Sell To Close (STC) 10 NZDCAD @ STOP 0.865

 

To enter a brand new profit target for a long position, enter:

SELL TO CLOSE AT LIMIT XXX

 

To use same example above. Enter a profit target of $0.905:

Sell to close 10 NZDCAD @ LIMIT 0.905.

 

Your Trade Blotter will look something like this afterwards:
