Using IB's algorithms in a trade ticket.



Jerry, I know you responded to this already with a negative but I wanted to post this in the proper forum for feature requests since it would be much harder to find buried in the support forum in case you're ever willing to reconsider.

Ideally I would be able to select IBALGO Adaptive as the Default Route under Order Settings and there would a drop down menu selection box for either "Patient", "Normal", or "Urgent". Then in the order ticket window IBALGO would be selectable from the drop down list including SMART, et. al. For IB at least straight MKT orders can produce terrible fills. Often when I am trading I can be dealing with a considerable spread in a market where the price action isn't moving too quickly. The adaptive algorithm spends slightly more time trying to execute the order at a better price point within the spread whereas with the straight MKT order IB can send the order to execute right on the bid for a short or right on the ask for the long. Even if I make, say, $600 on the trade $50 or $100 lost in slippage is brutal.

Thanks for your responsiveness with all the issues/questions I've had.
