Stop Loss Modification Issues

Recommended Posts

I'm having a peculiar issue with stop losses, likely a Trader Workstation (TWS) software issue, but I thought I'd ask on here before contacting their tech support. I make a trade via hotkey with an attached stop loss and profit level. I am able to modify either one for the most part.; however, I've run into numerous trades lately where I update the stop loss and it reverts back to a lower value or throws an error. It is as if there is some kind of price threshold that it won't let me surpass. Has anyone else experienced this? I plan on videoing this in action as proof to send to IB as a bug... at least I hope it is a bug and I am not missing something fundamental.


Thanks for any info you may be able to provide.

i never succeeded with the bracket orders so i keep it an open trade with stop loss only and when partialing out i just edit the stop loss. i also change the stop loss price using the graph and T button instead of changing it in the orders page
