IB ignoring stops today?

  1. For the first time ever, I've just had IB completely ignore my stop. Price went through it twice. I even checked the log to be sure it wasn't something I screwed up.

    Anyone else having this prob? It was in ES about 2 mins after employment report. Market wasn't even trading all that fast.
  2. I had one ignored in the YM last night. I think there is a setting someplace for trading outside rth.
  3. empee


    they dont want you to be able to stop out of their shares so they can pump it the first day!
  4. That's what I was thinking also as I rarely trade outside regular session.

    I'll look into this,

    Thanks, Jayford.

    PS I am not going to even bother asking IB as it will take them a month to get back to me.
  5. Yep,

    That was it. Took about a minute to find setting on my own under configure - order defaults.

    I've been using IB for years, and never noticed that (I don't play with my defaults).
