Re: IB - Is it possible to connect orders?

Hi guys!

I have an interesting question for the traders here, is it possible to set of connective orders? What I mean here is to set the following orders...
  1. Set a buy trailing order - with space of 30 cents for example
  2. For then to be followed (not having bought the stocks yet...) by a sell trailing order with 30 cents as stop loss

If that's possible, life would be a lot easier



Thanks for your wisdom!
Do bear in mind in a volatile market a sell order may never execute, for example price $100, sell order $95, market falls to $75. You need a willing buy at $95 that may not exist.
