Pushed, and got this:


Quoting 
Unfortunately we would not be able to increase this. IB Management believes that the ability to have 15 working orders on each side on one contract is sufficient.

It looks as if you are trying to stack orders in the ES? Have you considered trying our Scale Trader Algorithm?

This may allow you to define a total contract size of greater than 15. If you use an initial size of 1, with subsequent order size of 1, this would effectively allow you to have more than 15 orders on one side of the ES contract.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
