I wrote this to manage trade entry and updates for NOW.
Releasing it a bit earlier due to request.

Basic overview


You can also pickup prices from Amibroker by using Hotkeys.
Default shortcut for Entry price is Win-a, for stop price is Win-s and for target is Win-T. This can be changed in settings. Price is picked from line under cursor. If there is no line, it picks using tooltip. Trade direction is automatically set after picking entry and stop. Price will be round off to tick size based on direction ( For longs Entry moves up and Stop moves down ).

Configure and read further instructions in OrderMan.ini. Start by running OrderMan.bat.

Download - 0.1b
Source code is here.
License - open source ( gpl3) - which basically means that if you redistribute it then also provide source code.

Download includes AHK binary. For those who can code/debug - you can use included IDE scite. OrderMan.ahk is the entry point.

Note
1) This is initial release. It will probably have bugs. I am using it for few weeks with entry and stop. Target is less tested.
2) Ordering is more difficult to test than rtdman. So its likely to have more bugs and regressions in any new release. So we will release beta build and based on feedback release stable build later.
To minimize problems for testing - a) test with small quantity trades b) Test using below setting. This will keep Buy/Sell window open and you will have to push submit manually after checking.
Code:
AutoSubmit = false
If there is a problem, you can simple close the application and manage orders manually.
3) Development will probably be slow as i only code once in a while based on need. So have patience.
4) This has some missing features. There is no logic for partial fills yet so You wont be able to move Stop past entry when Limit order is still not complete. SLM use should be ok.
There is no support for partial exits yet. All of these and more i will write later ... But you can manage manually after entry in such cases after closing application.

great going TB, nice job !!! Thanks again.

Can it be used with Nest also?

regards
Not right now, maybe in future - but testing and maintaining it will be a problem as i only use NOW. NEST and NOW are very similar but can have some slight changes with strings. Maybe someone can help out by finding those differences and listing them, then it would be easy for me.

Also note that this is not meant for auto trading - It uses desktop automation instead of apis. This adds some lags and fault control issues which means that response time could vary and take a few seconds sometimes.

Now is much better than nest. With this on bracket order wont be needed. Only that the tool will ve to be tested and bugs if any fixed

Note one thing - the stop resides with our computer until triggered ( and not with broker). This is same as waiting with Stop order window open and ready to submit as soon as entry gets filled.

I have tested it for my trades few times already (and use it solely) along with workaround testing, but it may break with scenarios that i did not consider or due to regressions after subsequent changes
