OCO (One Cancels the Other)

A one-cancels-the-other order (OCO) is a pair of conditional orders stipulating that if one order executes, then the other order is automatically canceled.

After activating the OCO function, Trade Manager “remembers” all pending orders and when one of them is activated, the rest are deleted.

WARNING! Removing one of the orders does not cancel the other ones, but only activation the pending order will do it.

Drawing and clearing lines (open, stop and target) is on the one button

After drawing the open, stop and target lines on the chart, the pencil icon changes to an eraser icon that can be removed from the chart.

Trailing stop: activation parameter as% of distance to TP and parameter trailing as protection of% of earned profit.

Trailing stop settings

Trailing stop Start can be set as% of distance to TP, e.g. if TP = 30 pips and Start = 75% then trailing start after 75% of 30 pips = 22.5 pips

Also “Trailing” parameter can be set as% of earned profit, so let’s back to our example:
TP = 30 pips
Start = 75%
Trailing = 50%
when the trailing stop is activated at 22.5 pips profit, the stop will be moved to a distance of 11.2 pips, which protects 50% of the current profit (50% of 22.5 pips)

Ability to disable button to open market orders when lines (open, stop and target) are drawn on the chart (pending orders only)

Trade Manager settings – disable market orders button when lines are drawn

In the Trade Manager settings window, you can disable the possibility of placing market orders when the lines are drawn on the chart:

Break even offset as% of earned profit (“Profit” parameter)

As in the case of trailing stop, we can set the “Profit” parameter for Breakeven as a percentage to protect, for example, 25%, 30%, 45%, etc., of the already earned profit, i.e. as in the example below:

Break even settings

Break even will be activated after 50 pips and the stop will be moved to 5 pips (protection of 10% of earned profit).
