Multiple Questions in achieving BO-ish type behavior
I want to place an order with a target_value but with out stop_loss (or very low stop loss to make sure exit never happens).
is it possible to achieve this using BO order type of java client ?
Can i use BO order to short sell by setting transaction_type as 'SELL' ?
1. Square off value and stop loss are compulsory in BO. Use limit order instead.
2. Yes you can short using bo.
How do we identify the parent order_id in the postback received for an order generated through a BO?
Once you get the postback of an order, you can fetch the orderbook and find the entry of that order. Once you get the order, you can find a field called parent_order_id.
