Classic TWS: Right-click on an Order Management Line

To see a right-click menu, select an order management line and then click the right mouse button. Select an item from a right-click menu using your mouse. The right-click menu on an Order Management line contains the following menu commands:

Menu Command Description

Transmit

Transmits the selected order.

Discard

Removes the order from the page.

Transmit All Transmits all orders on the current Quote Monitor page.

Check Margin Impact

Opens the Preview Order box which shows the order parameters, commissions and margin impact of the order before you transmit.

Attach

    Bracket Orders - Attach a set of opposite-side orders that "bracket" the current order in an attempt to limit loss.

    Target Limit - Attach an opposite side limit order.

    Target Relative/Pegged - Attach an opposite side relative order.

    Stop - Attach a Stop order to the selected order.

    Stop Limit - Attach a Stop Limit order to the selected order.

    Trailing Stop - Attach a Trailing Stop order to the selected order.

    Trailing Stop Limit - Attach a Trailing Stop Limit order to the selected order.

    Adjustable Stop - Attach an adjustable stop order, which will be modified to the adjusted order type when the stop trigger is hit.

    Auto Combo Limit - Flips the parent combination order and submits an opposite side limit order. You must enter a limit price. For example, if you have a BUY calendar spread, the parent order looks like this:

Buy 1 XYZ OPT NOV06 80.0 CALL

Sell 1 XYZ OPT OCT06 80.0 CALL

When you attach an auto combo limit, TWS flips the combo and create a SELL calendar spread order like this:

Sell 1 XYZ OPT NOV06 80.0 CALL

Buy 1 XYZ OPT OCT06 80.0 CALL

You must enter a limit price. Since the attached order is dependent on the parent order, it will not be transmitted until the parent order executes. 

    Auto Combo Market - Flips the parent combination order and submits an opposite side market order. See above.

    Beta Hedge - Attach a Beta Hedge Order to the selected order.

    FX Order - Attach an FX Order to the selected order.

    Pair Trade - Attach a Pair Trade to the selected order.

Create

    Duplicate - Creates another order management line with the same order parameters directly below the selected line.

    Scale Orders - Creates a series of orders at incrementally decreasing/increasing price intervals.

Modify

    Order Ticket - Opens the Order Ticket window where you can modify parameters before you transmit the order.

    Condition - Opens the Conditional tab on the Order Ticket where you can create or modify a conditional order, which is an order that will automatically be submitted or cancelled ONLY IF specified criteria for one or more defined contracts are met.

What if
