Trading under demo account

I’m trying out IB with the demo account and having a few problems:

  1. No matter how I try to place an order, chart or ladder, it gets filled 30 points away in random direction from where I selected it to be placed. And it gets filled immediately, even though there is no price action taking place where it is filled.

  2. I can’t get a simple trailing stop strategy to work. It never places the order. I’ve followed the videos for how to do it, it just doesn’t work.

Hey @lgrayjr welcome!

  1. The demo is 10 minutes delayed. This is causing that issue. You can email me and I can set your demo to live data.
  2. Please post some screenshots of the strategy so that I can see the details.
