IB Stop Loss Orders Not Executing

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by andysmith, Aug 7, 2012.

  1. I am using TWS ChartTrader, and price is passing right through my stop loss and nothing is happening for several seconds (sometimes 30 seconds or so)!

    Eventually, the stop order executes (at a terrible price). I spoke to a tech and he said to take a screenshot next time this happens.

    I have set my stop trigger method to LAST (rather than the default of double bid/ask). I'm trading liquid stocks (daily volume > 1M).

    Has anyone had this problem? PLEASE HELP!

    Thanks much!
