[User Discussion] - Order Quantity

Support Request:

Re-post of question asked April 15.

I am currently calculating and entering my order quantity manually in my Auto trading.
I enter my order quantity manually on the Default Worksheet (cell J26) and also on the Attached Trade Window (quantity – used for Target and Stop).
Is there any documentation how to automate this?
I see there is a Trade Service Account Balance (Default Worksheet cell J47) where my IB account size is reflected. My order quantity can easily be calculated from this.
Any advice how to automate order quantity will be appreciated.
Thanks.

Other than to use your own formula in J26, we have no further advice.

If I use my own formula in J26, how will the same order quantity automatically be entered in the Attached Trade Window (quantity – used for Target and Stop loss) as described above ?

The order quantity you specify in cell J26 will update the Trade Window at the time the order is submitted. The Attached Orders will update to the specified quantity.
