IB- my ZN stop orders trigger only during RTH

    Using TWS Build 855.5 with java version 1.5.0_04

    At night tried to place an order to enter ZN on a stop or stop limit. Either way, a clock symbol came up saying only during RTH. But when I tried a limit order TWS accepted that.

    I checked my "Global configuation-Order-Order defaults" and no "RTH only" boxes were checked. Also under "Stop Trigger Method" I DO have the box checked for "Allow triggering outside of RTH"

    I also entered orders to initiate currency futures positions on a stop and there was no such problem.

    Why is the ZN stop giving me RTH only?

    IB should implement native stops for E-CBOT. The exchange supports native stops since Q3/2005 or so.

  5. I had the same problem and was told the clock graphic was a bug for after hours stop-limit orders on ecbot (order was still active). After upgrading to build 856 the clock disappeared.
