Ameritrade OTA on Short Sale fails


Recommended Posts

   Haven't been using MT to trade via Ameritrade much, but ran into a problem today

   Shorted a stock with an OTA  Buy  attached .    The short executed,  but Ameritrade rejected the buy as 'account not  allowed to BOX '  thinking I was selling and buying at the same time .

   Additionally , I could not clear MT of the buy order , it just remained on the screen no matter what . 

  Something going on with the buy to cover logic ???
