I am currently using Think or Swim platform.
I am confused on how to setup a short trade with a oco bracket order after.

I want to short for example s&p future @ 1460
I want to close my position if the price goes up 10pts up or I want to close my position if it goes to 1455.

How do I set it up.
-1 limit $1460

{OCO}
+1 Stop trg +10
+1 Limit 1455.

Is that the right setup?

sounds like your +10 stop has an issue; I have issues with CQG doing the same and just execute my stops manually.

getting long because your limit stays in the book and gets executed. You sure you using OCO?

Yup.
I put the
1 trg OCO advanced order.
I'll put a screen shot up when I get the chance to later.
