Trailing Stop Order rejected by IB / does not conform to the min price variation

Postby LMC1 » 05 Jun 2018

Hi,

I am testing a stock trading system and met the captioned problem.

I have checked that the concerned stock symbol is set up properly in Quote Manager. Please refer to the attached screenshots.
And the Trailing Stop Log message is,
"06 Jun, 11:08:00 1128-HKG set trailing stop of 213 points."

Please help.

Hello, LMC1!

Please cross-check your symbol settings (min move specifically).
If your data provider is not IB then please make sure that the data feed symbol is configured the same way as the broker symbol and adjust the symbol mapping:

If you’re autotrading then please make sure that your orders are generated with the prices that are acceptable on the broker end.
You can do that by printing out your strategy calculation logic:
