Do you have any success or failure stories regarding setting up buy or sell conditional orders based on you indicators?

I have had successes and failures. :D

A successful example is triggering an order when indicator hits a certain value for $AMD and making a profit based on my pre-analysis of support/resistance.
I save that as a template.
An unsuccessful example is not realizing that the stock symbol GETS SAVED WITHIN THE TEMPLATE, so for example, I exited my $MCD trade based on $AMD indicator values -- wasn't a good trade. :D

So, be careful when you create the templates. If you just trade certain instruments using study-based conditions (which I tend to do more of as I get familiar with a few symbols), then the conditional order templates should be saved PER-SYMBOL. Hope this helps!
