NYSE does not accept odd orders

Postby ctu1121 » 08 Oct 2012

Hi there,
I wrote the following code to buy US stock.
value1=10,000/close of data1;
value2=intPortion(value1);
print(value2);
if marketposition=0 then buy value2 shares next bar at market;

I can see Value2=92 in PL Editor and I see my Interactive Brokers TWS shows:
NYSE does not accept odd orders.

I am using IQFeed as my real time market data, please advise how could
I change the setting in order to request MultiCharts to send buy order signal via
Interactive Brokers SMART Routing.

Thanks!

Charles

Hello Charles,

You need to buy 100 contracts.

Hi Henry,
I have ever tried to buy 92 position stock on IB TWS manually, it work.
I could see 92 stock order was executed successfully. I assume I could
buy 92 stock on TWS via IB Smart route.

You can place an order for 92 contracts, but TWS can call this order "odd".
