How can I not get odd lot fills?

    I am getting sick of getting partial fills of 13 or 88 or whatever shares when trying to close out a position. Then I get stuck with an odd lot I have to get rid of myself. Is there a way to specify that I only want whole lot fills within TWS?

    Fill or kill? All or none?

    Thanks. I actually don't mind if I get only part of my position filled, as long as it's not in odd share amounts. But if the methods you mentioned are the only way to do it, then I guess that's what I'll do!

    Route your order to an ECN which doesn't allow odd lot fills (like Instinet or BRUT).
