Complex Orders not displaying on Bid/Offer

    Hi all,

    Occasionally, when I place a multi-leg option order on IB (say 3 or 4 legs), my order will sit on the bid or offer (depending on whether I'm buying or selling) when I place it, but if it sits there too long, will stop printing as the bid or offer after some period of time (maybe after an hour or so).

    If I cancel and replace, the order will show up again on the bid or offer.

    What is going on here? How should I interpret this? Even though my order is not showing on the bid/offer, IB tells me my order is still open.

    I'm sure others have experienced this. Any insights?

    Thanks,

    Will check it out next time I see an order disappear on the NBBO.

    thanks,
