Accumulate Distribute Algo

Use the Accumulate/Distribute algo to buy or sell large quantities in smaller, random sized increments over time, minimizing market impact. This algo supports multiple asset classes including stocks, options, futures, forex, and combination orders.

Customize the basic algo with conditions to meet your specific views on the market. Multi-account users will see the Account selection list at the top of the algo page.

Note:  Orders submitted via Accumulate/Distribute currently are active only while you are logged into TWS and stop when you log out. When you log back into TWS, answer “Yes” when asked if you want to reactivate the algo. If you answer “No” your Accumulate/Distribute algo orders are deleted.
