    Hello everybody

    I have a question regarding using various order types in TWS. According to manual or IB web pages there are plenty of order types that can by used in TWS. But at the main screen or order ticket I can see (use) only five base types - MKT, STP, STP LMT, LMT, TRAIL (NYMEX CL futures).

    I asked the question to IB support - the answer was "there are approx. 40 order types in TWS, for details see the manual"

    The only thing manual says is: "select order type from the list"

    For example - how to create MIT order?

    Any ideas?
