    You should be able to replicate that functionality in a few lines of code.

    If price < exit_price
    Then send exit order

    Stop orders have several advantages over marker orders:

    They use less execution resources from your system.
    Stop limit orders allow limiting slippage.
    Sending stop orders ahead can increase filling priority. Important when liquidity is low
    Users of Cloudquant Lite (like myself) can't wait one minute to check the new price without increasing risks.

    Best regards

    1) Source?
    2) You can send a limit or a market order, how you route/execute the order is up to you.
    3) Source?
    4) CQ Lite doesn't have access to tick data so either way, it would fill when new bar forms. You can use the Add Trade functionality to simulate a fill at your exit price https://app.cloudquant.com/#/glossary/616
