    Hello, is it possible in TWS to have pending orders without having a related data line for the product? I want to place a maximum of orders but don't want to use some of the 100 data lines provided by IB for these orders.

  2. Yes.

    Thanks orangetrad,

    how do you make the data line disappear? I must be an idiot. I got a message :"this ticker cannot be deleted because it has an order".
  4. I haven't seen this error message, but if this works as everything else in TWS: cancel order -> [restart TWS] -> delete data line -> re-enter order. Restarting might not be necessary, but this is TWS, so who the hell knows? Try first without.

    If this doesn't work, then I don't have the foggiest. :) GL
