First, the title of this is "Bracketed Exits when not in Auto Mode". If Auto-Trading isn't enabled, orders will never be placed automatically.

Second, if you want stop loss or limit targets to be placed on the entry bar, then you need to enable that option in the Trading Preferences. Make sure you see the User Guide to learn how to use this feature.

a. If the "entry bar" preference is enabled, and if Auto-Trading is enabled, then those orders will be "Auto-Placed" when the entry order is filled.

b. If the "entry bar" preference is enabled, but Auto-Trading is not enabled, then those orders will be "Auto-Staged" when the entry order is filled. You have to place these orders manually.

c. If the "entry bar" preference is not enabled, then nothing happens when the entry order is filled. Your strategy's exit logic will process on the next bar.
