IB Algo Favorites Preset

With the new Algorithm Favorites preset in Global Configuration, you can now define IB Algo preset values that will populate the order parameters when you select that algo as the order type.

To set IB Algo Favorites presets, open Global Configuration (from the Mosaic File or from the Classic Edit menu) and scroll down to Presets in the left panel. Select a supported financial instrument, for example Stocks, and in the right panel scroll down to Algorithm Favorites. Select an IB Algo and define preset values. The values you define will populate the algo by default when you choose it as your order type, but you can modify any value on any order, and change preset values at any time.

Fixes and Updates
