Built-in Exit strategy "Stop Loss" does not work.

Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue

When creating a stop order on the chart and attaching a "Stop Loss" exit strategy to it the expected behavior is that it should be activated after the initial stop order is filled.
This does not happen.
After initial order is hit the "Stop Loss" disappears from the chart.
Leaving the open position with no Stop Loss.

Steps to reproduce this issue
  1. Put in a stop order on the chart for EuroFX futures (6E) with Open E Cry as broker.
  2. Right click order => Attach Exit Strategy => Stop Loss
  3. Wait until stop order from point 1 above is filled.
  4. Stop Loss is gone.

I added a picture to show the issue.
Broker is OEC and symbol ZCZ1.
So far I have this issue with ZC, 6E, CL and NG.
Both Stop and Limit orders.
It does not happen every time but about 10% of the Stop Loss orders are disappearing.
