You sure can in the older versions, I used to work with this guys, if the IB Costumer Service is telling you that is not possible to adjust different values for an open position, try using a contrary order for a stop loss (not hedged)hi, would appreciate anyone with Interactive Broker account could advice IB open position is able or unable to adjust/amend/add/delete stop/trail and/or limit for existing open position.
IB custmer service told me IB platform does not allow open position to adjust/amend/edit/add of stop, trail and/or limit!!! Which I find is totally rediculous, as such feature are most basic, especially if wanna apply take half position and adjust stop/trail/limit for 2nd half to gain free trade or control loss.
anyone sharing would be greatful. as i could figure out it can be done so n not sure if the custoomer service really know their own stuff, or if is true, then may b IB is not good as such basic feature are essential.
tks n rdgs,
So does this means I cannot open a position for an amount greater than 400k or the margin for that trade should be less than 400k.The total maximum margin position that can be held in each tradable security, regardless of the leverage used, the number of trades made for that security and the use of derivatives that reference to the same product, is limited to $ 400,000. In particular, this means that for instruments that give the possibility to use leverage, such as Forex or Futures, the limit applies on the initial margin requirement required to open the position, not the notional of the underlying security.
