This is a simple OCO set with 10 contracts to demonstrate the Dynamic Planning > Scale to Fit feature that automatic adjusts the number of contracts to fit the $1500 maximum 'Risk Per Trade' set in the Money Management.
Profit Target = 20 ticks
No Trailing Actions
Stop loss = 15 ticks
No Trailing Actions
this is a more advanced OCO set to demonstrate moderately advanced Trailing Actions for the entry, profit target, and stop loss orders.
Entry = Limit order
Initial Placement = SMA 5
Ent@SMA5 = Move the entry order to the SMA 5 at the close of every bar.
Profit Target = 30 ticks
Initial Placement = 30 ticks
Evaluate Using = Action Closest to Price. (Whichever trailing rule moves the P/T closest to the market price is executed.)
PT HMA Tighten = (For a Long trade) When the Close price is below the HMA 21, then the P/T will tighten by taking the highest high of the last 6 bars and add +7 ticks.
PT @ 30tk = This rule continuously tries to move the P/T out to 30 ticks from the entry price. (provided PT HMA Tighten is not moving the P/T closer to the market price)
Stop loss = Swing Point or ParabolicSAR
Initial Placement = Swing Point Low or High
Evaluate Using = Action Closest to Price. (Whichever trailing rule moves the S/L closest to the market price is executed.)
SL HMA Tighten = (For a Long trade) When the Close price is below the HMA 21, then the S/L will tighten by taking the bar's Close price and subtracting 8 ticks.
Follow Swings = (For a Long trade) This rule continuously tries to move the S/L to the last swing point low, as calculated by the SiSwingHighsLows indicator. (provided this rule is moving the S/L closest to the market price)
Follow PSAR = After 15 ticks of profit, this rule continuously tries to move the S/L to the ParabolicSAR indicator. (provided this rule is moving the S/L closest to the market price)

This post is to centralize all suggestions in one location. Our goal is to design BlackBird to accommodate the way most traders trade, so that trading becomes quicker, faster, and overall more convenient.. We may not be able to add every custom bell & whistle, but we do want to give it a try and hear what you have to say. Please feel free to share your ideas here.

During the Beta phase we expect there to be many updates pushed out as often as possible.
The version number will normally not change, but may get incremented from time to time.
If the Installer is failing, or you immediately start getting errors when adding BloodHound or BlackBird to a chart, or errors that mention key words such as <module>, XML, or Failed to execute DB, then please follow this manual uninstall process.
If you receive an msxml4.dll error, then run the Installer as Admin.
