Slide modification of order price not truncating to 0.xx

Recommended Posts

Morning Jerry, Happy Holiday season and thanks again for the tweaks of my suggestions ~~ Back in The Day ~~

Working w/GPL on MT and while trying to slide to a new price point, getting the mpi [minimum price increment] of 0.01 and for some reason this one is not truncating properly?

 

As only will allow me a 'hand entry' to manually enter the price, while ToS is fine.

 

Jim

Which trading screen is this on? (Trade Ticket, Chart, DOM?)

Which quote source?

Which Broker?

and which symbol? (is GPL reference a symbol or something else?)

sorry for the delay. got swamped. I had a chance to look. Just to confirm, you are getting a 0.01 price increment on GPL symbol? I think it happens if you open the chart when there is no data and then it gets data. If you close and re-open the chart, or switch to another symbol and back, it should correct the increments. I will check on it

server response: problem Canceling/replacing as Order

The minimum price increment of instrument GPL is 0.01.

This order will not be accepted..

 

 

MT once this is "slid" down below 1.00 [all above truncates 2 places] but sliding under throws the error.

 

While "Sink and Drown" is 2 decimal thru the 1.00 barrier.

but wait a sec. if GPL is below 1, then the minimum increment should no longer be 0.01. that is a server error and you can change what price you actually send.

Correct, 😉

 

IF "I.slide.using.MT" and use modify it errors, if ToS? It's fine,

Hence, why have to then "get error" just to manually have to use MT.... = time lost

what is the exact order that you are submitting and what is the price of the stock at the time you are submitting?

And, if you are entering via TOS, then you are not entering the exact same price.

I know you don't have any, so best way to convey/show this on your end,,,ie...

 

1) Open an Intra-day please

2) Limit tab > Right Click and Buy..  SLIDE WAY under price...lol

It places it, where you have the check mark

3) Checking it, throws the error/

ok we have no control over that. the minimum increment is on the TD Ameritrade servers, not MT. If the CURRENT price is above 1, they set the min increment for the limit order to 0.01. So if the current price is 1.10 and you try 0.7334, it will fail. This is not something we can do anything about. It would be a TD Ameritrade issue
