Use IB Managed OCO orders

Yesterday I have downloaded version 1139 and installed the Sierra Chart Real-Time and Historical Exchange Data Feed.

I have noticed that the Data/Trade Service Settings window has changed (well, it looks different) and that the option "Use IB Managed OCO Orders (Recommended)" is back and defaults to TRUE.

However, if I send eg. a limit buy order plus attached stop-loss order from Sierra, still only the buy limit stop order shows up in TWS.

Has this issue been fixed and am I doing something wrong? Or is it still not working?

"Use IB Managed OCO Orders (Recommended)" has always been available in all versions. Previously you had to press on the More IB Settings button.

When using Attached Orders the Attached Orders are not sent until the parent order fills.

OK, my bad.

Any plans to implement sending of attached OCO orders to IB together with the entry order instead of after the entry order has been filled?

If I loose my internet connection while the entry order is still pending, and then the entry order gets filled, then I'd be in the market without an attached stop-loss order.

This would be unacceptable, so I cannot use Sierra chart-trading unfortunately.

I am also concerned with this deficiency and have to set price alerts so I can place the orders so they are in the market for the minimum amount of time.

Why is this so difficult to do, this could lead to (in the worst case scenario) a catastrophic loss to a trading account.
