    New to IB and just getting to know the TWS software. Does anyone know if there is someway to set the software so that it remembers that it's okay for you to trade after-hours and during the pre-market too? I have the Good After Time box checked in the layout but it doesn't seem to matter. It defaults to trying to send my order in during regular market hours. I hope I don't need to actually type a time in for each trade. lol Is that really what you have to do? Are you kidding me? :) Say what? ha :)
  2. go to configure, order, order default, uncheck regular trading hours only box

    Thanks, vhehn. Couldn't find that in the users manual. Was looking at all the settings in the US Stocks window and the Good After Time was checked but that didn't do it. Now I know. Thanks. :)
