    Darn it, I placed a GTC STOP BUY order last night

    for my -25,000 EUR.USD position.

    I set it to 1.3040. It blew past it a and it DIDN"T trigger.

    Did I do something wrong? Or was it IB's fault? :confused:

    ids Interactive Brokers

    Trouble ticket with audit logs is the way to find out.
     
  3. After using IB for years and years, I can say positively that unless you are talking about possible problems with a new TWS release, there is about a 99% chance that you just plain fked up. IOW it ain't IB...

    Check your TWS settings for trading at other than Regular Trading Hours, (RTH).

    So the order I placed is a proper stop loss order for IB forex?
    Could I also use a close position order and give it the stop loss price?
