GAT (good after time) MOC orders with TWS

    I just tried those today on a paper trading account, it worked fine with ES, setting up limit and market orders when planned, but I had a EEM MOC order, and I got filled about 1mn before MOC @41.68, it looks as it sent a market order 1mn before close.

    Any idea why that happened ? Does the same problem happen on a real money account ? If so, any tip on how to set up a GAT MOC order ?

    Also anything I should be aware of regarding GAT with TWS ?

    Thanks in advance

    Some of you must be using GAT orders. Anybody here has feedback ?

    It went OK with limit and market orders on a paper account but didn't work fine for OPG and MOC orders. I would need *very* seldom GAT for moc or opg but still wonder what's going on.

    Also anyone here getting MOC orders working through IB mobile app ?
