How do I place a stop order in the DOM?

The DOM for TSTrader is right-click/left-click sensitive. Which means that using a left or right-click will process a different type of order.

When placing a limit order, left-click below the market in the Bid column to go long and left-click above the market in the Ask column to go short.  To place a stop limit order for a long position, right click in the Ask column below the market.  To place a stop limit order for a short position right-click the Bid column above the market.
