Mosaic Order Entry Panel

Use the Order Entry panel to create, submit or save an order. The Order Entry panel is linked via windows color grouping to other windows, which means that when you choose an instrument from another window in the group, the Order Entry panel is "loaded" with that instrument and ready to submit an order. It's easy to change the asset by selecting from the drop-down list of previously used instruments, or typing in a new one manually. To set up an option order, click the Option Chain button to easily pick an option contract.

Use the Advanced panel to include additional order attributes and to one-cancels-all, profit-taking or hedging orders.
