Equity Stop Orders

How do I send an equity stop order in Lightspeed?

Lightspeed Trader can send Stop and Stop Limit orders via BATS-EDGA. These orders are triggered by trades: once the symbol trades at your stop price, EDGA will send an order on your behalf.

To send these orders, you can map the StopBid, StopLimitBid, StopOffer or StopLimitOffer Keys seen in the “Keyboard” tab or use your Order Entry Window, seen below. If you select STOP from the “Type” Dropdown in the Order Entry Window, you should also see STOP propagate in the Market dropdown, seen below.
