Stop orders possible with IB ChartTrader?

    This evening I tried some features from TWS (I try to get the most out of TWS before looking into 3rd party apps).

    One of the things that I kind of like is ChartTrader. However, it seems that you could only enter limit or market orders.

    Does anyone have experience of inserting more complex orders through ChartTrader (for instance a MKT buy togetrer with a MKT stop)?

    It would be ideal to change stop levels in the chart. From what I saw, this seems to be onluy possible with limit orders.

    Any ideas?
  2. I don't use IB's charts and there have been many on this forum, actually I think most, who say their charts are worthless.

    Why not either make them of a quality that the customer will use, or just dispense with them entirely. Why provide something that the customer is not interested in.

    Anybody else have thoughts on this?
