The ITC Order Bar is a highly-responsive Panel that allows you to place basic and advanced orders manually.  The mouse wheel can be used on most fields to cycle through the available values.   Available choices and color-coded input fields are revealed as needed based on the order parameters you've selected, minimizing errors, reducing distractions, and maximizing efficiency.  Rather than clutter the screen unnecessarily, labels describing each field can be revealed by hovering the mouse over the input area.
