    Hey IB,

    I'm wondering if it is possible to use an adjusted Stop as a child of a bracket order? Can't seem to figure it out.

    Nevermind. After reaing the TWS manual, adjusted stops only work with the parent order.

    It would be cool if in a future version of TWS, you allowed an adjusted stop as a child of a bracket order. Then again, there's always a trailing stop...

    I have checked the case with IB.

    If you attach an Auto Stop or Bracket Order, the Adjust tab is disabled. IB said any attached stop orders are not adjustabled.

    I have sent them a few emails to request the features in their new versions.
