Interactive Brokers -- Sell Stop calculated from fill price

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by andysmith, Nov 6, 2012.

  1. Before the market opens, I submit this bracket order:

    ---> Buy stop at yesterday's close, attached sell stop at "Parent Order -2%"

    The problem is: the sell stop is being calculated as "buy stop less 2%" instead of "fill price less 2%". This becomes a huge problem if the stock gaps up at the open, high above yesterday's close.

    Does anyone know how to get the sell stop to be "fill price less 2%"?
