Re: On Stop order

Use drug & drop instead.
When dragged below the market, "Sell Stop" is placed. When dragged and dropped above the market, it's a "Buy stop" order.

Double click is confusing and should be disabled imho.

      Dear TS Support,
      Although the thread is quite old, think my question fits here...

      Can databases be moved to a network location permanently?
      I want to be able to access data from either desktop or laptop without moving/copying databases every time when required.

              I share most of the pain discussed here.

                  When you download and install the latest (not beta) TWS from interactive brokers website, the IB gateway will be automatically installed with it.

                  The IB gateway will not be installed if you just update your previously installed TWS. Once installed you can see what this is.

                  hi Flipflopper,

                  I've seen duplicate bars in the late MC v.5 Beta builds.
                  Happened with IQFeed datafeed. It was supposed to be fixed back then.
                  I am concerned as well over the return of the duplicate bars.
