Hello, when creating bracket order presets in booktrader from interactive brokers somehow the sell-orders do not get the right orders attached.
To make things more clear, I've attached 3 pictures of the problem.
1. Presets in TWS
2. Order created after BUY order is submitted
3. Order created after SELL order is submitted -> this goes wrong
You can see that the SELL order gets BUY-orders attached with the same price.
I've checked everyting and my sim account does not have this problem.

Your screen shot does not show the proper settings: There are settings especially for Booktrader mouse actions as Right Click, left Click.
Open Booktrader, then click "Configure", choose "Hotkeys" and then in the section "Configured Shortcuts" you have to make the right settings e.g. select "Buy LMT at BookTrader Price.." and then click "Configure" in the same section
The configuration files for the paper trade account and the real trade account are different.

Thanks, but it seems my settings were correct ( picture ).
I also find it strange the problem is not ' symetrical', the buy-order is correct, the sell-order not.
Edit: My mistake, you were right. The problem was that for the sell-orders the red circled areas were filled with "0.00" instead if being completely empty.
( picture 2)
Probably this field in " hotkey presets" overides the presets in the futures configuration. So they need to be completely empty. Since mine contained " 0.00" for the Sell orders only, a bracket order was sent with the same stop loss and target price as entry price.
Thanks FGBL07 !
One of my worst enemies are my own false assumptions
