IB Globex question, please

    "Does IB hold the stops or do they push through the orders to Globex?"

    ie: when their system goes down and you put in stops when the system was up, are the orders held on the Globex thus working or are they held at IB and NOT working?

    Thanks in advance.

    Found it, thanks to a nice ET member.

    Stops and Stop Limits DO NOT go to globex, thus are NOT working if IB goes down.
  3. Stops do not go to globex. Stop limits do go to globex. Thus if IB is down, the stop limit is still working. Sounds like you got some bad info.
