I was hoping to find an experienced TWS user. If I were to place a market order to buy, the only option I have found to place a protective stop , is to place the stop at the same time I initiate the order. to do this I have to hit my price down key 10 times for a 10 tick stop! (futures). Can I program a default 10 tick stop for every trade? The only option I have found to place the stop after the order has been transmitted, is by typing up a ticket. All of this is too slow! I have yet to find any info. on this in the users guide, and IB will not reply to this type of question.
