Support trailing stops in the bracket / oco order

Dear Alpaca team,

It’s nice that Alpaca begin to supprot the trailing stop order.
Can you support it also applicable inside the bracket order and oco order? I see IB supports it and hope Alpaca do it also.

yes, it would be great to design a bracket order with trailing stop at TP side, (+ end)

Would love this. A bracket order with a trailing stop on both sides would be interesting!

EDIT: an OCO order where you open a position with a trailing stop and then, as soon as the stop triggers, another trailing stop order is placed to close the position. This could help to find the best buy-in and sell-out points.

I also back this request. The TS on a bracket leg would be great and make things a lot easier on the api user.

Is this a form of front trading which is illegal.

No. We’re talking about the trailing stop loss, which is a type of order.

I think you’re confusing it with the infamous “pump & dump” scheme, which can be illegal, but has nothing to do with what’s being discussed in this topic.
