Entry Order Expiration

The Entry Order Expiration can only be added when creating an Entry Order.
It's purpose is to automatically cancel your Entry Order after a specified period of time has elapsed.
The time is calculated from when you submit your Entry Order.

This can be useful when trading a market that is moving quickly: if your entry has not filled within a period of time, and you believe it is unlikely to fill.

The Entry Order Expiration can be used with all Entry Order types: Market, Limit, Stop Order, Trailing Stop and Ladder.
Where your Entry Order adds more than one order to the Order Book (e.g. a Ladder Order), all related Entry Orders will be cancelled when the Expiry time has elapsed.
