trail orders not working?

Discussion in 'Order Execution' started by newtothis, Oct 16, 2008.

  1. hello, I placed a trail order with an increment of .20 cents and when it goes past the 20 cents the stop price doesn't move with it (i'm using ib paper trading account)
    secondly when I wanted to just stop out- I was short spy from 87 and change - @87.00 the price went back and forth and past 87.00 about 15 seconds before my stop gets filled?
    anyone familiar with ib's trailing orders?
