Skipping order preview with IB

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by Option Trader, Apr 30, 2008.

  1. We recently have been getting order previews with IB (maybe because we got a new computer?? maybe because a change by IB??). Is there not a way how to skip this step? I can't seem to find how/where?
  2. Anyone???

    Another example, is that the order default settings make each trade a "day" order; what does one do to change the default settings to be "GTC" orders??
  3. Are you using TWS or the Web Trader? To configure Day vs GTC in TWS, go to CONFIGURE > ORDER > ORDER DEFAULTS and change the "Time In Force" box at the top.

    I've never seen order previews in TWS. They are optionally available in Web Trader.
  4. TWS.

    Got the info from IB meanwhile. When the order previews come up they told me there is a box to check that it should not appear again.

    Also, thank you for the info about changing the settings. BTW, it seems there are separate specifications to change the default settings for stocks & separate for options.
