Creating Limit orders and sending them to the quotes tool can be done easily manually. There are different sources for signals like the strategy monitor, strategy window, maybe charts (not sure about it) and so on.

It's a bit annoying for me to move limit orders manually, but ok, it's doable.
Usually there is enough time and someone can choose when to do this work before the market opens.

One scenario is the creation of limit orders including he opening price of the session for calculation. In this case, preparing the QT is not possible before the market opens. I want to scan those limits for opportunities as soon as possible.

Currently, this would require sitting at a computer when the market opens, which is not practical in the long run. The idea is therefore to move the limit order automatically into the QT without manual interaction.

Do you think this is achievable?

Of course, there are different ways to implement this idea. Maybe the QT tool can handle limit orders (based on session opening price) differently if they are marked as such. Maybe you have other suggestions for a solution.

An important note is that more signals/orders are generated than orders can be placed with the broker. Therefore, it is essential to use the QT tool and place only the triggered orders.

Do you have any idea how I can bring things together (in an automated way)?

1. Limit orders
2. opening price of the session
3. Quote Tool

Is the requirement so complex to implement?
(e.g. moving signals from strategy monitor to QT "automatically")

It’s not so complex, would you like me to tag this with a FeatureRequest? I’ve just been consumed working on the top most voted item right now which is enhanced trading tools for the streaming chart.

Just another thought on this topic. How does the expected behaviour in the strategy screener looks like when using ExecuteSessionOpen() ?

The screener should not return the current session-in-progress opening price. One of the reasons the screener can scan the entire market in 1 or 2 seconds is because the data for the last session (and a year before that) is loaded in memory.

You could make another request for that feature. We could return the current session's primary market's open price for Wealth-Data symbols, the rest of the U.S. market might be a problem though.

I’d say that’s out of scope for the Screener.

This is not even necessary, especially when this function is introduced. From this point on, you can check the data provider of your choice and bring the signals from the Strategy Monitor into the QT tool. I was curious to see how this scenario works.

Thanks Cone, Thanks Glitch
