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

    • Thanks for the post.  I would be interested in understand the costs associated with the relevant ETF. Do they carry the same sort of fees as one would expect from investing in the fund directly (management, performance, early exit etc.) or are they limited to the usual dealing costs - commission, SDRT? Also, for my clarity, we are talking about fund which may be issued by large investment managers (e.g. Blackrock - iShares, Baillie Gifford, PIMCO etc.) which are traded on the LSE
