Iceberg Order Support

Postby flipflopper » 01 Feb 2010

I am pretty sure Multicharts doesn't have support for hidden or reserve/iceberg orders in IB. If not can we please add this capability.

I don't know how many traders use Multicharts to auto trade large trades but if Multicharts wants to be used by professional traders they need to add this feature.

Also is there a limit of 65,000 shares in MC?

You could code Iceberg orders by yourself in Easylanguage, that shouldn´t be a problem as long as you set the max contracts high enough.

Doesn't seem possible.

Coding an iceberg order doesn't seem possible at this time the way that OCO orders are handled.

The ability to execute iceberg orders is very important to me, I have put a request in the project management side for "show max quantity" -

please vote:

the ability to do iceberg orders would be all this and so much more.

3 years since this initial request.
I am certain that CQG supports iceberg orders, any advice from support on implementation using multicharts?

Agreed. I think this feature is necessary if MC wants to cater to the professional market.
