Hi, I have been testing for several days the new version of the Risk & Reward Charting Tool that allows you to change order types on the fly. It seems to work well, now the workflow is much improved.
I would like to point out an issue I have encountered, which is that the setting of the order type selected on the interface is interdependent between different instances of the tool open on different charts.
Let me try to explain further: if there are two or more charts open at the same time, each with a different symbol, and on each chart an instance of the tool has been loaded, then the last order type setting I select on one chart will also affect all the other open charts.
For example, this morning I had GBPCAD and NZDUSD open at the same time. I loaded the tool on GBPCAD and prepared it by setting the order type to "stop" without placing the pending order yet. Then I switched to NZDUSD, loaded the tool (so I had two tools open at the same time) and setting it to "market" without yet entering the market.
I went back to GBPCAD (which I had previously set on "stop") and clicked "sell" on the tool to place the pending order, but the tool executed a "market" order, which was the last setting I had given it, the one on NZDUSD, forcing me to close quickly with a small loss.
Since it is not safe to work this way, is it possible to make it more reliable by having the settings of the various tools open at the same time be independent of each other?
