Building a Lock out

Hey

I want to create a checkbox system that prevents me from entering a buy or sell order until I have checked each box for my trading criteria. Essentially, I want to lock the buy or sell button until I have confirmed by checking four boxes.  This will slow me down and hopefully stop entering orders prematurely.  Any thoughts?  Is this even something that can be created?

Thank you very much for your assistance

there is always a but!

if you are something like a longtime investor and not daytrader you could of course maintain a dropbox file which you can read every day

people maintain their trading stocks gathering data from a dropbox file  what i have seen here....

simple  aapl,sell in a file

i think reading that file every hour is not possible....only daily or something like that

this could work

and after a time you will automate it anyway :):):):)

if you get the info sell and you are not at home or tired or whatever .......
