Is there a way to create an attached order that will execute after a certain time? I'd like to set a stop and target, but have my position closed automatically if neither has been hit by a specified time. I'm using IB TWS.

Thanks.

This is not directly supported. However, you can simulate this by using the Spreadsheet System for Trading study:

So you can program a rule to Exit a position at a certain time and cancel all working orders on the exit.
