TWS order rejected - Time In Force unspecified.

Postby Splint » 17 Jun 2012

Hi,

Just had an order rejected and the open position and orders window says TIF unspecified. Presumably this is the reason why TWS rejected it, but from the order, the interval is 1 day. I assume the interval is the time in force? Anyone know what's going on with this?

Thanks
David

Hello Splint,

TIF unspecified is not the rejection reason in this case.
What is the real rejection reason in File -> New -> Order and position tracker window -> Logs tab ?

Hi Henry,

I had a look at the logs tab and realised that I was trying to trade an expired contract. Classic newby mistake. Made the appropriate changes in symbol mapping and everything is fine.

Thanks
David
