The Bridge processes 4 types of Signals
- Long Entry (LE) : Equivalent to fresh Buy for creating Long position
- Long Exit (LX) : Equivalent to Sell for reducing/squareoff Long position
- Short Entry (SE) : Equivalent to fresh Sell for creating Short position
- Short Exit (SX) : Equivalent to Buy for reducing/squareoff Short position
Based on your Signal, and the settings provided under Symbol Settings, the Bridge places orders in API with complete parameters. The settings given in Bridge over-rides the values received in Signal, whenever available and matched.
It’s a legacy feature which can be ignored
This should be same as the signal in your chart or other application such as Amibroker/MT4/Python
Should be selected from drop-down. The Exchange value is taken automatically based on InstrumentName.
Entry Order Type
Applicable for LE/SE signals
A) Fixed Qty : A fixed integer qty will be used for all LE/SE/LX/SX signals
B) Qty from SL : Calculates only for LE/SE signals. Risk is user defined points Eg. 3000. StopLoss is taken from Signal: eg. 2. RoundLotSize for EQ segment should be given as 1. Example: When signal received in SBIN with 3000 risk, 2 rs StopLoss and RoundLotSize= 1, Bridge will place order with quantity 1500. For LX/SX signals, qty is taken based on last sent LE/SE signal (regardless they are completed or not; Bridge does not checks for NetPos here). Qty= int(Risk/(StopLoss*RoundLotSize) )*RoundLotSize.
C) Qty from Exposure : Exposure means the order value with which you want to take position. It’s calculated only for LE/SE signals. Exposure is user defined Eg. 10000. Price is taken from Signal: eg. 255.00. RoundLotSize for EQ segment should be given as 1. Example: When signal received in SBIN with 10000 exposure, at 255.00 price and RoundLotSize= 1, Bridge will place order with quantity 39. For LX/SX signals, qty is taken based on last sent LE/SE signal (regardless they are completed or not; Bridge not checks for NetPos here). Qty= int(Exposure/(Price*RoundLotSize) )*RoundLotSize

It squaresoff current position based on the Unrealized MTM received via API. Note that MaxProfit does not stops trading; if fresh signals are received, they will be processed.
Important : MaxOpenPosition/MaxProfit/MaxLoss may or may not work based on the functionality provided by your Broker API. For details see API Errors.
You can set the time from which Trading will start, irrespective of your signals. For example, if you are trade intraday, and don’t want to trade in first 15 minutes after market open, you can change Entry From to 9:30 AM.
