    Extended Orders to Interactive Brokers (IB)

    To Interactive Brokers (IB) and/or C# pros
    (specially in case NT stuff would not support answering that question)

    Is there any reasonable way to get NT to send extended order information to IB instead of having just the regular MKT, LMT, ... orders?

    I would need to send a buy order (limit) with an attached bracket order with a stop loss order (immediately active) and a target limit order (maybe also immediately active or the next day at open, so a 'start time' would need to be attched), plus an additional market order which should be sent to the broker (IB) already with the inital entry and bracket order but should become active before the end of the close in some days, i.e. a 'start time' (= activation time) should be attached to the order.

    This is all (relatively easily) possible within IBs TWS and other than NT API software, but how could I do that from NT? Maybe it requires another application, like a C# prgramm or whatever, which would get the signals including the parameters (entry limit, stop loss, ...) from NT, which then would generate the order?


    Same is true for another strategy: There I would need to send MOO (market-on-open) orders which than reside at the exchange an will get the official fill at the open price (and are not similar to wait until the open and fire a MKT or LMT order).


    Thanks

      I know that NT does not support them natvely. I just wonder how else this could be realized. Maybe writing to a file which would be interpreted and excuted by a third application, like a C# program (like the samples that come with IBs API).

        That may work.

          Has there been a solution to this ,ie.. attaching the stoploss and profit taking order as an attached order to the main order from NT to Interactive brokers .I am only looking for this as a day order.
          Many thanks
