Re: IB - Is it possible to connect orders?

View Post
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!
Anything is possible since with IB you can also write scripts (which btw it is not something difficult if you have some basic computer programming knowledge) or connect the trading with Excel where in VBA you can program whatever you like.

I established the link in a couple of days it is very straightforward. Although, I would strongly suggest against trading that way unless you can at least monitor the execution on your mobile phone.
