Chart Trading Question

Postby ctu1121 » 18 Jul 2013

Hi there,
I press Sell Mkt Order on Chart, however, this order did not execute immediately.
This order showed on my Interactive Brokers TWS only. I still need to press transmit
bottom on TWS.

Is it possible to press on MultiCharts Chart ONLY and make the order be filled?
Thanks for your help!

Charles

By the way, I have un-check on Strategy Properties/Require order confirmation. The situation remains.

Hi ctu1121,

in the settings of TWS for API there is a check-box for api orders to ignore the bacic TWS ordersettings if order comes by API.

Yes,
your checked boxes are the same as I have for the api-orders.

If you are trading live you should check the box for "create API message log file".
If you have problems with ordersending then you can compare this log-file with the MC order Tracker.

Your main folder for the TWS is "JTS".
if you have the log-files enabled there will be for every day an "api.xxxx.Day.log" in your JTS-folder.
