Modifying an order in the Order Book

You can change the price, quantity, or time-in-force of a working order. Simply select an order, modify the order as desired, and click the Change button.

You can also raise or lower the price on an order by ticks by clicking the Tick Up and Tick Down buttons. When you use these buttons, the changes happen immediately.

Note: If you select multiple orders, you can reprice them all by increasing or decreasing the price by the same number of ticks. No other options are available.

Modifying an order in a grouped Order Book

When an Order Book is part of a widget group, the toggle button is displayed in the "view" column for each order row. The button is used for "viewing" filled and partially filled orders in a grouped widget. When the toggle button is displayed, the checkbox is used for "selecting" an order to modify or cancel in the grouped Order Book.

Changing the current user on an order

The CurrentUser field displays the the user name of the person who is monitoring an order while it is working in the market and, when orders are entered by multiple users sharing the same account, identifies the person who has "last touched" an order. To identify yourself as the monitor of manual or automated orders, you can update the CurrentUser field of an order in the Order Book:

  1. Select one or more orders by clicking the order in the Order Book or the check box at the front of the row.
  2. Click the Change button.

You should now see your user name in the CurrentUser field.

  1. While pressing the Ctrl key, right-click in the order quantity number pad buttons. The order quantity button interface opens.

  2. Change an order quantity in the interface. The value immediately changes on the corresponding number pad button.
