    I am looking for a stock market trading platform that can do the following:

    1. Buy xyz stock at $3.65 (this is a simple limit order and they can all do it - this is not the problem)
    2. IF xyz stock was bought at $3.65, sell when it reaches $3.67 or higher (this is the step I am having trouble with)

    Do you know any stock trading platforms that can day trade like that? because right now I am putting the sell order by hand and my reaction time is not quick enough to sell at $3.67 although the stock did reach $3.67 seconds after buying at $3.65
