Creating a stock or options order from a watch list

To create an order for a public or personal watch list symbol:

  1. Open the public or personal watch list you want to create an order from, and double-click the bid or ask price of the corresponding symbol.

    The order entry window will appear with the selected symbol pre-populated in the symbol lookup field, and the limit price field will also be populated with the selected price.

    Note: for an options symbol, the default option parameter values will also be populated.

  2. The remaining fields in the order entry window will display the default values. See Creating a stock order for details. Edit the default values as required. 

  3. Click Send order. Depending on your user preferences settings, a confirmation dialog window with a brief order summary may appear. Click Send order to proceed with the order or Cancel to cancel.
