Partial fill issue

Postby faraz » 19 Aug 2011

Hi,

I want that my limit orders should not get partial fill. It should be filled completely or wait to get filled so that my strategy stay on one direction.

I have been told to use Fill or Kill orders but my broker is saying that FOK orders mean that they will be canceled immediately if not get filled.

Another solution is to turn un-filled orders into market orders. I don't want to do that. I want the exact price fill for all my orders or cancel my limit orders at exchange close.

I need a "Day" type work order solution that if my strategy place a limit order for 4 lots;
a) they must not get partial filling.
b) if order is not filled, it should be canceled by exchange at market close.

Please advise if there is any solution for this.

What are you trading? Forex? Stock? Future?

You should start with a flowchart -- map out all the decision branches of what to do at each situation.

Faraz:

What you have is a general idea.

To turn the idea into specific executable instructions,
you will need to write step-by-step instructions for the computer to follow.

One of the tools you can use to define your step-by-step instruction
is to create a flowchart; it helps you to visualize the logic,
and to make plans for decision trees at each scenario.

Once you have the order flow designed, then you can create the instructions with EasyLanguage codes.

TJ,

Thanks

No, I did not asked EasyLanguage solution. I know we can always do that in strategy code language. What I am asking is the solution with in Multicharts strategy properties or broker properties section like that. Some platforms have the feature to just check one box which says Partial fill not allowed and it will make sure that market gave fill to all orders. I am asking if there is some thing like that kind of feature available in Multicharts?

Faraz,

What broker do you use? If it is IB please try to use the following option: right click on IB broker profile --> Edit profile --> Settings --> All or None Execution. If you use another broker, please contact broker to know if they provide such option. If they do and it is possible to transmit this setting via API you may want to submit a feature request to the project Management Section of our web site.

Dave,

Rithmic developers Confirmed that Rithmic support "Specific fill quantity" feature but unfortunately this feature is not available in MC so I have requested this feature addition. Lets hope it should be available in next version release.

Thanks

Hi Dave,

The All or None Execution is equivalent to an IB FOK order?

Does the All or None Execution do a FOK on a market order as well?

So, if the market order is not executed immediately, it is killed? And this is different than MC auto trading setting to cancel obsolete market orders. The cancel obsolete order actually sends a cancel order to IB after some x number of seconds.

Also, does the All or None Execution also govern the PlaceMarketOrder command's market orders that are sent as "low level" market orders?

Thanks!
