It's time for a straight answer to a straight question IB! Why have you recently decided to hold all Globex stop-limit orders on your servers, rather than send them to Globex as native orders immediately upon receipt? Please don't insult my intelligence by pretending that such orders are still sent immediately to Globex and this is a cosmetic colour change only. You see, once in a while, a rep lets the cat out of the bag by writing stuff like the following: "Dear Trader, Yes. We posted a bulletin last week advising that native order status color for native stop and stop limit orders will be dark blue and no longer green (regardless if order has been received at the exchange or not). Only once the stop order has been triggered order status color will change to green. We will update our website with this information shortly. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again. Regards, IB Customer Service" Now let's get one thing clear, I'm not talking about the OCA order type. All I am talking about is a single stand-alone stop-limit order placed directly into TWS with no other orders anywhere in sight. Such an order is now colour blue (IB server). A week ago it was colour green (sitting on Globex). I WANT TO KNOW WHY THIS ORDER IS NOW BEING HELD ON IB SERVERS WHEN IT SHOULD BE SENT IMMEDIATELY TO GLOBEX. Thank you.
