Share Trading - Cannot select order type apart from "Limit-Day"

Recommended Posts

I just created my account with IB and checked out how to make a share order on the platform. However I was surprised that I couldn't choose any order type apart from "Limit-Day" (see attached screenshot). I'm after a Stop Buy order for buy.

I tried to search around but found no place specifically talks about this issue. Please confirm if this is an issue or it's just because your platform simply doesn't support other order types for share trading.

Thanks

hi i think the particular share you are trying to trade will be driven by market makers eg yu group,

try dummy order with say vodafone group you will see it then gives you options for different types of trades eg gtc

hope this helps

    • The vote has little significance if there will be an extension given if they vote no.  They can keep this up indefinitely.
    • Still not clear how the vote will go tomorrow, will depend on Labour MPs, snap poll suggests general population support it. Merkel ready to offer an extension if vote no but Boris seems unlikely to accept. Nick Boles MP  @NickBoles  "All the Benn Act does is oblige the PM to request an extension if he has not got his deal approved by the end of tomorrow. On its own an extension request cannot stop a No Deal Brexit on 31 Oct. The only certain way to stop No Deal is to vote for the deal."
    • Using ProRealTime at the moment But also though first using the API. The backtest functionality of PRT is not too bad though, as you can run through variables up until 10,000 combinations. Currently running through different combinations of TP, SL and entry points
