Working orders are orders that have been submitted to your broker for execution but have not been filled. Working orders include orders initiated by an automation and manual orders initiated with the “+” icon in the Position Statement.
You can view working orders in two places in your Option Alpha account.
Working orders are displayed in the Position Statement in the Active Positions section with “Opening” under the ticker symbol.
The position will occupy a potential active position slot while the order attempts to fill.
You can select the position to view the order’s status and details.
The order details include the symbol, quantity, broker instructions, status, time submitted, and pricing information. You can always cancel the order with the button at the top of the page.
You can also access working orders in the bot dashboard.
All orders placed by your bots are available in the Orders section of the bot dashboard.
Again, you can select a position to view the order details. The bot used is displayed at the bottom of the page.
Working orders are a great way to view all open orders in your bots. They will also simultaneously be available to view in your brokerage account. You have complete control over your orders; you can cancel and replace them at any time before they are filled.
Unfilled orders are canceled if they are not filled in their allotted time, and the bot will try again at the next available interval.
