One-legged bracket (i.e. parent and stop only)

Support Request:

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to do a bracket without a target order, and if it's ever supported server-side.

Common example:

Parent order: Buy 1 lot to open, market.
Child order: Sell 1 lot to close at a certain price, stop.
Parent order triggers child order.

I'm asking because the DTC documentations only seems to talk about two children in an OCO configuration.

Thanks.

I am now realizing that the OCO message is actually two orders bundled in one message (instead of requiring two separate OCO messages as I thought).

So is this the procedure to accomplish what I want?

* Submit parent order
* Submit OCO **message** for two child orders: one **dummy** limit order, and one stop order.
* Cancel the **dummy** limit order. Parent and child still remains.

No, this is not supported.

Yes. This should work. We would not expect a problem.
