Manual Trading: Scaling into a position changes existing TP

Postby Fabrice » 26 May 2012

I create a topic for this bug report, because I think it should be read by all traders using Chart Trading on EUR/USD (the bug report and my similar experience are on EUR/USD). Sorry if this thread already exists.
It concerns how MC adjust automatically stop loss orders (and probably the take profit order) when adding to a position. In short, MC may automatically close a position although we would not want that. I did not have the feeling of having made a misuse of Chat Trading. In any case, TS Support should more document this behavior, because it was a complete surprise for me. And not a good one, you guess.
Regards.

PS: by the way, this is an example of how important another feature should be implemented: "simulation", i.e. the possibility to experiment Chart Trading in live market, orders not being really sent. I believe this was already asked in the forum or in PM I do not remember. And also for the strategies, for those interested.
