Stop or stop- limit in aftermarket?

    Does Stop order works in Aftermarket? I use IB. Since it will become a market order once stop price is reached, my question is does it refer to only normal trading hours or it include after market hours as well? I tried to place a stop-loss order and unchecked "Regular trading hours only" on order ticket, but when price fall during the aftermarket, my stop price should have been reached, my order was not executed. Is it ture I only can place Stop-limit order in order for it to work in after market as well?

    Anybody has experience with that please help. Thanks!

    I think stop order works for AH but you can not have a stop limit order in AH. Don't go with only my response, wait for more reposnes
