Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Stop Order not getting filled (TOS OnDemand)

Please excuse me for the double post, I couldn't see a way to move the thread I created in the Beginners section to here so I'm reposting (I'll go back and delete the old one after this post).

I'm trying to familiarize myself with thinkorswim before I start using it full time. While testing it today using the OnDemand feature I bought 2000 shares @ $1.63. I set a stop at $1.55. The price went up to around $1.70 and then trickled down to $1.45. The ask's were well below $1.55 for at least 2 minutes and there were 100+ trades executed lower then $1.55 as well, and yet the stop order never got filled.

I had the same problem with setting a limit sell order at $1.68 where there were plenty of trades well above $1.68 but yet it never got filled. It seems the only way I can buy/sell is using market orders. The order is shown to be working, and displays on the chart, but just never executes. I don't want to use real money until I figure out if this is either an error on my part or a glitch specific to the OnDemand feature. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
