IB and scalping

  1. Bobby,

    My understanding is that the initial order that you create (the one that you right click to attach the other orders too) is called the parent order.

    All the orders are sent at one time until the parent order is filled the other orders are not sent out, I believe they reside on IB's servers until the parent is executed.

    This is what I gathered from reading the posts at IB's board.

  2. I've been over to IB's boards (not today) & didn't see an answer, but I'll take a look again. Thanks; hopefully def will chime in. :)

    The stops and target orders are not submitted to the exchanges until your primary order is filled.

  6. Def, is it possible to tweak things so that after you cancel or transmit an order, that the highlighted cell goes back to the contract row instead of remaining on cell below?
