IB Conditional trailing stops possible?

  1. Hey all,

    Ideally I would like the ability to add a trailing stop once a condition is met (e.g., Add 3% trailing stop when price exceeds 20).

    Currently IB seems only to accept Conditional orders based on Market or Limit order types. Any ideas how I can accomplish my goal in some other fashion?

    Thanks...

    I am also wanting to do the same thing but haven't found a way to do this in TWS, I asked them on live chat and they confirmed it wasn't possible.. IB, if you are reading this. PLEASE can you make this feature available?
