OCO orders: must you be logged in?

Discussion in 'Trading' started by Option Trader, Apr 6, 2008.

  1. I know if an OCO order is held at the exchange then you dont have to be logged in for the order to go thru.
    But what if the order is server held? When does the problem apply that if you are not logged in, the OCO order won't go through?
    Thank you in advance.
  2. Someone suggested the following difference:
    "Server held means that the orders are on the server. You can shut off your computer and walk away. The order will still be on the server and will execute if the conditions are reached."
    "Client held" is where you must be logged in.

    Can anyone verify if this is 100% correct?
