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

    • I am asking about maximums, especially during 5pm est, not where the live spread is, you can't practically monitor spreads by glancing at live data. Obviously these things vary by liquidity etc., and some brokers cap maximum spreads during 5pm EST on some pairs, even if they are not capped, there are often consistent maximums, so this data is extremely important. I assume by the lack of replies IG does not publish historical spread data at all, like e.g, Oanda does (https://www1.oanda.com/forex-trading/markets/recent), and Saxobank does (https://www.home.saxo/nb-no/rates-and-conditions/forex/classic-historical-fx-spreads). If that is the case, is there some spread monitor tool that can be used on the desktop or web platform? Thanks.
