You can set up a scan something like this:

when the price drop 5 % scan in s&p500 , any automatic trigger buy the stock, i know set the condition in the trade, but i cannot find if the Percent drop down 5% the condition is true, the buy action will buy that stock automaticlly
@kc5560 That would be a Conditional Order, not actual auto-trading... True auto-trading would handle entries and exits repeatedly... Conditional Orders are once and done... You need a Conditional Order for your entry and another for your exit... They can be saved and re-used but they can't be set to auto-repeat... If you want to call Conditional Orders semi-automatic that would be more in line with what they are...
