I ran across another thread here mentioning IB's new implimentation of "globex stops". This is something that I really liked initially. After doing some fact finding I've come to the conclusion that it is not what it appears to be. At least it don't work the way I had wanted it to. The following is a message I posted on the IB msg boards and below is the response I got. IB's RESPONSE: Now I'd like to open this up to some discussion on this issue and see what everyone else thinks? Did you believe as I had that after I submited my order I could immediately submit a stop order and be safe from IB's systems going down?
