How or wWhat is Bracket Trading with TWS

  1. H2O


    I tried something with the demo, Is this my fault or is this just not possible.

    I want to auto-create a limit order (Only a limit / no stop, I do them manual)

    I created a hotkey, selected customize, bracket, set stop to none and set limit to 1 (example)
    When I tried to execut, both orders are in TWS (STOP which I don't want and limit) but I see size on the stop = 0 and I get an error message : field #99 must contain value. (I think this will be the size field...

    Any thoughts?:confused:

  2. Yea, I figure IB will fix this item fairly soon. They've added a lot of new features (since I've been with them), and they eventually get things working fine.

    Just wanted folks reading the thread to know there is a workaround.
