I would much appreciate your help here. I'm trying to set up shortcuts in Interactive Broker simulator.
Here is what i did. In configuration page I assigned "Current Key" shortcut as F1 button for 'Buy MKT with Stop'. Than in Advanced tab following:
Action - Buy
Size - Default
Order Type - MKT
Attached Stop Order:
Order Type - selected STOP
Stop Price - selected Ask than +/- (-3) amt
Ticked the box Transmit the order instantaneously.
When I press F1, order get executed in DOM and I can see that stop order seatting 3 poitns below of my execution.
When price riches that stop order for some reason it is not kicking in and remains there forever.
Is anyone can help me? what did I do wrong ??? I"m trying to set it up so that stop order acting as a Stop Loss order.
Same problem with sell order.
