How to attach a stop loss to an entry using OSO orders
As you know, markets can move very quickly, and at times it can be difficult to place a stop manually after an order is filled. If you use stops when you trade, a very efficient way to set a protective stop before entering a trade is to use an OSO order. OSO is short for Order-Sends-Order, meaning that 1 order will at least send 1 more order when the initial order is filled. You can access OSO functionality from multiple places in the TradeStation platform. For example, you can place an OSO directly from the order bar, but you can also place an OSO from the Matrix and from the Market Depth window. In the Matrix, before placing your entry order, simply check "Attach OSO" and choose from the drop down menu. As you can see, you have multiple exit templates available. Let's use "Exit -- Stop Only." You may click the ellipsis button on the right to adjust the price offset for your stop order. By default, futures price offset if set to 10 minimum price increments which in this case represents 2 ½ points. To enter the trade, click the cell under the Bid Size column next to your price. You can see my order to buy 1 contract of the S&P E-mini and you can see my stop loss 2 ½ point below. The order to enter the market is gray, meaning that it has not yet been filled, whereas the stop order is green since it is contingent upon my entry order being filed. As soon as the buy order is actually filled, only then will my stop order actually be active. For demonstration purposes, let me adjust the entry order so that you can see what happens when my order is filled. Notice that the stop order changed color from green to gray when the entry was filed. Notice also that the offset was automatically adjusted as well; in this case the stop was set to be 2 1/2 points away from the entry price. To review, if you need a protective stop as soon as you enter a position, make sure you use the OSO functionality by checking "Attach OSO" and choose the appropriate exit template from the drop-down menu before placing your order to enter a position.

How to place trades directly from a chart analysis window
Chart Trading lets you quickly place trades by clicking and dragging directly on the chart. When enabled a trade bar attaches to the chart analysis window providing additional trading options. To enable Chart Trading, click on the chart trading icon on the TradeStation toolbar. You may also right-click the background of a chart analysis window and select Chart Trading from the right-click menu. The chart trading trade bar will appear on the right side of your chart. The chart trading trade bar provides the basic order settings that you need to place your trades. Such as account number, order size, and duration. You can quickly place and cancel orders with the order placement buttons. Placing orders within the chart is accomplished by clicking and dragging the mouse pointer while holding down either the control key to buy or the alt key to sell. For example, to place a buy limit order hold down the control key on the keyboard and while holding, simply click and drag the pointer to a price level below the current market and release the mouse button. An order line appears on the chart marking the open buy limit order. To make more room for the order lines, let's drag the bars to the left. To change the price of an open order just click and drag the order line to a new price and release the mouse button. The order is automatically canceled and replaced. To cancel this open order, select the order line and press the delete key or click the cancel active button in the trade bar. This time, let's place a sell short limit that when filled will place an OCO exit bracket order. First, we'll place a checkmark next to attach OSO on the trade bar and choose exit bracket 1L 1S from the list of exit templates. This will let us create a bracket consisting of 1 limit and 1 stop order. Then, hold-down the Alt key on the keyboard and while holding, click and drag the pointer to a price above the current bid then release the mouse button. The sell short limit order appears with the potential bracket order shown in grey. Dragging the entry order to a new price automatically cancels and replaces all of the related orders. Dragging either one of the bracket orders to a new price only adjusts the relative distance to the entry price. When the entry order hits the market price, it fills and the bracket orders become active. The short filled order is marked on the chart with a red arrow, also notice that each bracket order line displays the projected profit and loss for the order based on the average price on the current position. Now, let's use the close button to go flat. This also cancels any open exit orders for the symbol. If we had wanted to maintain our position but cancel all of the open orders we could have used cancel all. For the next example let's turn off OCO's and use the buy market button to quickly create a long position at market. Now let's add a trailing stop exit order to the long position. First we'll change the trailing offset to 10 cents. Then we'll click sell trail to place a trailing stop order that will trigger when the upward moving market price retraces from its high by $0.10. Right clicking on an open order line allows you to modify an order for size or price. For example let's change the quantity of the trilling stop order to 300 shares. By the way, one of the powerful things about chart trading is that it's created in EasyLanguage allowing anyone to customize chart trading for the way they trade.

How to backup and restore your TradeStation work
The backup and restore utility in TradeStation provides an easy way to save and recover your work in the event of a hardware or software failure. It is also useful when upgrading your computer or even moving your work from one computer to another. To access the TradeStation backup utility, click on the File menu, go to Backup/Restore TradeStation, and then click on Backup TradeStation. This should bring up the TradeStation backup dialog. Each time a backup is run it produces a single file that contains all the elements selected in the backup/restore dialog. By default, this file is stored in the TradeStation archives directory in the program files folder of the C drive. For further protection, we suggest you copy this file into an external media, such as a CD, DVD, or USB flash drive. In case your hard drive crashes, you always have a safe copy outside of your PC. This archive file can later be restored into the same or more recent version of TradeStation. A TradeStation archive file contains only user-created components. It does not contain any items such as username, password, or account information. Therefore, an archive file can be restored safely by any other user without compromising any personal information. Workspaces are usually stored in the My Work folder of the TradeStation directory. If your workspaces are stored in a different directory, you can direct the backup utility to look at these additional folders to back up these workspaces as part of the archive file. In each reference folder, only files with a TradeStation workspace file extension, or TSW, will be included in the archive. You can define multiple backup configurations, and these configurations can include different backup settings. For example, you might use a daily configuration to automatically back up only desktops and workspaces every day, and use a weekly configuration to back up different components each weekend. A unique archive file is created for each backup job that is run. On the right of this dialog, you have the option to schedule an automatic backup job. You can specify the time, if you want this job to run daily, weekly, or on a specific day of the week, or on a monthly basis and specify the day of the month that you want this run. Please be advised that if TradeStation is open when a backup job is run, either manually or scheduled, the connection to the TradeStation data network will be terminated. All TradeStation related processes will be stopped so that all necessary files can be included in the archive. During the backup process Windows will not update, alerts will not trigger, strategy automation will be suspended, and orders may not be placed. Once the backup job is complete, all open desktops and data network connections should return to their pre-backup state. To restore an archive file, click File menu, select Backup/Restore TradeStation, and select Restore from the sub-menu. Here you'll be prompted for a backup file to be restored. Click on browse, locate the archive that you want to restore, click open, and then you can select the specific components that you'd like to restore. If you'd like to create a copy of your TradeStation environment from one computer to another, install TradeStation on that second computer, and then take a backup file from your main computer, and run the restore on that second machine.

How to use an automated strategy to exit a position
Sometimes we enter a position manually, in other words, through the matrix or order bar, and then we want to use strategy automation for an exit rule, or a technical analysis exit. Here's how we can do that. First we will take a position. We'll buy 100 shares using the matrix. Then we'll go to the chart for the same symbol. Now we'll insert a strategy for our exit rule. I'll click Insert -- Strategy, the strategy we'll use is ATR trailing LX for a long exit. Make sure the Prompt for format checkbox is checked and then click OK. In the format strategies dialog click the properties for all strategies button. Here on the automation tab use the second radio button. Strategy will fill non-historical orders only when the Trade Manager reports them as filled. Then the second check box assume the real world position for the current account. This setting will make the strategy look in your account and adopt any real position, whether you are long, short or flat. Let's click 'OK' and enable automation. Now on the chart you'll see a signal name 'Assume LE', which assumes our long entry of 100 shares. That's the position we put on via the matrix and now it's been picked up by the strategy automation. The strategy will now calculate our average true range trailing stop, and exit the position when that stop is hit. Here in the Strategy Orders tab of the TradeManager we see how a stop order is being monitored. We put a position on manually in this case via the matrix and we are using an automated strategy for a technical analysis exit.

How to add real-time data to your TradeStation platform
TradeStation offers connection to numerous data exchanges. But, you must subscribe to these data services in order to stream real-time data into your account. Otherwise, the data is delayed anywhere between 10 and 30 minutes, depending on the exchange that is providing this data. Here I have a quotes and a chart analysis window open. A capital letter "D" in parenthesis right after the symbol stands for Delayed, which means the symbol is streaming delayed data. I have not signed up for exchange where that symbol is listed, and therefore I'm not receiving real-time data. If you would like to receive real-time data on any symbol, you will need to manually select and add to your account the specific exchange where the symbol is traded. In fact, trading, whether it's done in a simulated environment or a real account, is only possible on real-time data. The process to add real-time data is very simple and your data should stream real-time within minutes of adding an exchange. In the TradeStation platform, click on help, account services, and select Add/Remove Data or Features. This will take you to the TradeStation website, and you should be prompted to log on using your TradeStation username and password. Once you log on, you will see a list of data exchanges and optional features that are currently running on your platform, and the monthly cost. Click the Edit button to add or remove data or platform features. Please pay close attention to the disclaimer at the bottom of this page: Please note that optional real-time data fees are debited in advance for the upcoming month and cannot be prorated or refunded. Therefore, we recommend adding additional exchanges at the beginning of the month and canceling exchanges at the end of the month in order to receive the most value for the monthly data fee.

Tape-reading Market Activity in the Time and Sales Window
Tape-reading Market Activity in the Time and Sales Window The Time and Sales window can be customized to tape-read market activity. QuickTips Tape-Reading Market Activity in the Time and Sales Window With very active markets some traders will use TradeStation's time and sales window not just as a tape but also as a way to sort through the levels of activity. Here you see a time and sales window for Microsoft. You'll see essentially we're tape reading, we see the trades going through, the size of the trades. Let's modify this window a little bit however, we'll right click in the window and we'll click on format Microsoft. And here in this window instead of showing all trades, and by the way we can add bids and offers to this they are not on by default. But instead of showing all trades we are going to sort through this and only show the trades that are greater than or equal to let's say 3000 shares. We can also call some of the columns down if we want to remove some of those, right click format columns, and we can remove some of what's in here. Then we want to narrow this down a little bit. Let's create another time and sales window; we'll click on the time and sales icon from the tools section of the shortcut bar, I'll just drag this over to this side for a moment. Here again we have Microsoft in our time and sales window. We'll right click, format Microsoft, and in this case we'll show all the trades that are less than or equal to 2999, 2 thousand 9 hundred and 99. In the first window we said 3000 or more, here will be less than 3000 by going to less than or equal to 2999 and click ok. So we are seeing larger trades, you define larger, I used 3000 as the cutoff, 3000 shares as the cutoff here. And I can see the pace of smaller trading versus the pace of larger blocks that are going through. I didn't adjust the columns in here; you can trim those down as well. So now we have side by side time and sales window, same instrument, but we are sorting larger trade, in this definition 3000 shares or more, versus smaller trades. We may be able to see one side of this ticker, one of these times and sales windows moving faster than the other and give us some idea correlated with price action on where the money is flowing.

How to customize the buttons in a TradeStation toolbar
The TradeStation platform comes with built in toolbars that you can disable and enable as you need. By clicking on the View - Toolbars menu sequence, you can check or uncheck the toolbars that you may want to add or remove. Toolbars in TradeStation are window-specific. They will appear and disappear as you click on different windows. When the chart analysis window is active, the chart analysis toolbar is displayed, giving you access to the tools pertaining to formatting and utilizing charts. When a RadarScreen window is active, the Chart Analysis toolbar disappears and tools for RadarScreen are accessible. And this is true for every window in TradeStation. However, you may want some toolbar buttons to be fixed on the toolbar, so that they are always accessible regardless of the window that is active. Also, some of the icons within these toolbars may not be so useful to you, and you may want to remove these icons from the toolbars. Well, TradeStation allows you to customize toolbars to arrange the buttons and have access to the ones you really need. It even allows you to create your own toolbar from scratch and only add the buttons you frequently use. First, let's see how we can customize existing toolbars to be exactly what you may need. Let's say for example instead of having this new TradingApp Window button in the toolbar, we want to have icons that open specific types of TradingApps; a button to open a Chart Analysis window, an button to open a matrix window, and a button to open a RadarScreen window. Click on view, toolbars, customize, and go to the commands tab. In this dialog you will see the categories on the left and the commands on the right. In the commands box, we'll see the buttons we're looking for. New Chart Analysis Window, New RadarScreen Window, and New Matrix Window. From this box we're going to click on the buttons, hold the mouse button, and drag them to the toolbar. Be careful to drop them exactly where you want them to be. If you accidentally drop them in a different location, you can always click and drag them again to the new position. Ok, I now have those three new icons on my toolbar. Since I'm not using the new TradingApp Window button any longer, I can drag that button from the toolbar back into the commands box. And you can just drop it anywhere within this box. Now let's create our own toolbar from scratch and start adding icons to it. To create a new toolbar we go to the view menu, click on toolbars, and then click on customize. From the toolbar tab we click on the new button. We give our toolbar a name, and notice the shared toolbar checkbox. We mentioned earlier that toolbars are window-specific, but if you want your customized toolbar to always be visible regardless of the window that is active, make sure that shared toolbars is checked. The new toolbar is created, and it appears as a floating little square. It's a floating toolbar. You can drag it by the title bar to the top, so that it docks where the other toolbars are. The toolbar looks empty because we haven't added any buttons yet. Just as we modified the existing toolbar previously, we can add and remove icons by going to the commands tab and looking for the icons we wish to add. Notice that the commands listed will be specific to the window that is active. If you're looking for chart analysis commands, you won't see them because no chart is open in the background. You'll need to open a chart and come to this dialog again to see the commands related to chart analysis. Let's add some buttons. For example, from the file category, I'll add the work online button. This will disconnect and reconnect TradeStation every time you click on it. And from the window menu, I'll add the arrange all button, which will arrange all my windows within the workspace. And you can continue doing this for all the buttons you need in your toolbar.

How to import custom indicators and strategies into TradeStation
ELD stands for EasyLanguage Document. An ELD file, that is a file with an .ELD extension, is a packaging or archiving format for analysis techniques and strategies in TradeStation. An ELD file works somewhat like a zip file, except ELD is TradeStation's own format. You'll use ELD files when you take an EasyLanguage class with TradeStation. You'll also use an ELD file to take something from the EasyLanguage library on our website and import it into TradeStation, or perhaps a custom indicator or strategy you receive from a developer. ELD files make it easy to move analysis techniques and strategies in and out of your platform. TradeStation has a wizard for importing and exporting ELD files. To launch the wizard, click File and then select Import/Export EasyLanguage. The import/export wizard will take you through the steps for importing or exporting analysis techniques and strategies in the form of an ELD. If you choose to use the wizard to import an ELD file, you'll have to navigate to the location of the file. An alternative is simply to double-click on the file, the ELD extension will be recognized as a TradeStation extension and automatically open up the import wizard. Let's try it that way. This ELD file contains all the classwork from our popular EasyLanguage Boot Camp class. Simply double-clicking on the file opens up the import wizard. Here you'll see a list of the types of analysis that are available in this ELD. We can leave them all checked or perhaps we decide only to import the indicators. Clicking next will show us what indicators are in this file. As we said, an ELD file can contain many different analysis techniques and strategies. We'll leave all of these checked and click finish. A pop-up message confirms and says: You have successfully imported your analysis techniques. By importing, the analysis techniques have been taken from the ELD file and put in the correct location in your TradeStation platform. Now if we click insert indicator, you can see all the numbered analysis techniques. In this case we only imported the indicators that were taken from the ELD file. This is the material from the EasyLanguage Boot Camp class.

How to create and use custom symbol lists
Custom symbol lists, as the name implies, are lists of symbols that you create and store on your own computer for use in various places within TradeStation, such as RadarScreen and Scanner. To access custom symbols lists, click on the Insert menu and select Symbol List. One of the main headers in this Symbol Lists dialog is Custom Symbol Lists. By default, you're supplied with a Sample List. But of course you can create and manage your own lists in TradeStation. Here's a Hot List window. It's set to display percent gainers -- 1 day; the percentage gain leaders for the day. Perhaps we'd like to capture the top group. So, let's click and drag to highlight, say, the top 15. Right-click on the highlighted area, and choose Append selected symbols to custom symbol list. Now here, we can append these symbols to an existing list, or on the right you'll notice the button: create list. We'll create a custom symbol list and we'll give it a name. We'll call it Hot List Gainers and click OK. Click OK again, and now let's move over to RadarScreen. We've just captured a group of symbols from the hot list window, and maybe now we'd like to use this list in RadarScreen. Now when we click on insert - symbol list, and expand custom symbol lists, in addition to the sample list, here's Hot List Gainers, the list that we just created. Click OK and that list is now brought into RadarScreen, along with the title row or a label row indicating that it's the Hot List Gainers, our custom symbol list. In this example, we created a custom symbol list using hot lists and then used it in RadarScreen. The same tools appear directly in RadarScreen. We can highlight a group of symbols, right-click on the highlighted area, and click on append selected symbols to custom symbol list. We can also create and use custom symbol lists in Scanner. For instance, let's format one of the sample scan provided by TradeStation. I'll right-click the scan, click format scan, and select the symbol universe tab. In the symbol universe, in addition to using the lists that we supply, such as all stocks and exchanges, you'll see custom symbol lists. Here we see the Sample List again, and the list that we created called Hot Lists Gainers. Custom symbol lists can be created and used in Scanner. They can be created and used in RadarScreen or quotes and they can be created from the Hot Lists window.
