    For less frequently used options like this, I usually:

    Create a new order line
    Right click on it and pick Modify > Ticket
    Go to the TIF tag if in compact mode (if in comprehensive mode, GAT will be on the main page)
    Then change GAT

    See illustration.

    Do you have the feature enabled in Configure > Feature Selector?

    is there a way to get GAT order to close any open positions? or do you have to specify a buy or sell trade?

    You can put your orders in one OCA group and have all reduced by the amount of the filled order.

    Orders sit at IB's servers.

    I think there is a way to create a triggered order at a certain time to do close but haven't done that myself.

    I have used it before. If you want to trade the ES at close i.e. buy at close if the market is higher than 1480 say. Then use a GAT MARKET BUY order to be valid after 15:14:45 and to expire at 15:15:00 with the condition being that ES Sep 07 >= 1480
