Placing orders close to Stop Limit

#1 Postby Kenswood » Sun Jul 21, 2019 7:35 am

Hi, I bought FT to practice strategies. Now I find that on the drop down menu when placing my order to buy or sell the drop down give me options 0-100 but anything under 70 pips after clicking on the green arrow to automate it tells me when I try to place the order "Stop loss is too close to the price. It has to be at least 30 points away. Now if you are practising a scalping strategy this makes things impractical. Is there a place in FT3 where I can change this limitation?

To fix this issue please open Data Center window, select a necessary pair, click “Change properties” button and decrease the value in “Min distance to price, points:” field.
For example, please set 1 in this field.

After that, click “Ok” button, close Data Center window, create a new project and start a new test.

In this case you will be able to place pending orders and set SL/TP levels closer to a current market price.

Please let us know if you have any more questions about our software or need any help with using it.
