TWS - Order types that persist to ex-dividend?

Discussion in 'Order Execution' started by BinaryAlgorithm, Jun 7, 2019.

  1. I usually do dividend capture by buying MOC then selling at limit, but the problem is that IB cancels orders that I've placed beforehand due to the dividend. I'd like to place a limit in advance or timed or on market open that isn't cancelled or adjusted - normally just at the original price I bought at. Is there anything I can set on my orders to persist them to the next day despite the distribution?
