You can trade stock right from the charts. First you need to define a dollar amount you would like to allocate to the trade in the blank space at the bottom of the chart. Then click Buy at the bottom of the chart and you will see prices in the right axis of the chart. If you are short stock, it will load the quantity you are short. If you have no position it will use the dollar allocation you have set. Simply click the price you want to buy and the order will be placed. If you have no position and you place a buy order above the current price the system will know it is a buy stop. If you place the order below the current price it will know it is a buy limit order. This same logic is used on sell orders. If you are long stock and you place a sell order that quantity will load. For more information on all of the order entry features please refer to the manual.
