This would be great. When this would be not possible in EL alternatevely this can be done by adding a function in prpoerties -> automated trading. There can a checkbox be added to enable it. It can work in a way: Take the EL-quantity, devide by a parameter in the properties-settings and when the first partial order is fired and filled fire the next (or place the next limit-entry) until everything is filled.
It is very common to trade mid-caps or small-caps which makes this feature really helpful. I hope a lot of others vote on it because this would be a great help.

Iceberg/reserve orders are really important when trading sizable positions relative to available liquidity at the NBBO. These iceberg/reserve orders are needed for LIMIT orders as well as for STOP LIMIT orders and SWEEP orders.

Would be an extremely useful feature considering difficulties executing when trading large size. Would be a welcome added feature to MultiCharts.

Please include also the hidden orders, which IB allows....

Any update on this feature?
I think iceberg orders are rather standard nowadays and it would be great to use them in MC as well.
