    Why do the Last, High & Low fields not get updated for the IdealPro forex symbols.

    For example EUR.USD shows movement in terms of the bid/ask being updated but the "Last" field has not been updated since last nights close and the High/Low fields are blank.

    This suggests that although there is a bid/ask feed, there is no actual trades being printed at IB. Is correct or am I missing something?

    I did post the same question on the IB messaging system --but that was 24hrs ago and they haven't responded.
  2. There is no central exchange for Forex. We would only be able to provide data on the trades we execute. High, Low, Last, wouldn't be accurate for the street as a whole. Depending on our volume to the street, the data could be misleading.

    In the absence of high/low trade information how is the triggering of stops handled?

  4. Bid/ask and last only when it's within those quotes.
