% Trailing Stops not working in TD Ameritrade

Question

About 50% of the time, TD Ameritrade "ignores" my trailing stop settings on a position. The position falls 5% or more below the limit and just keeps on going. Yes, my trailing stop orders are set up correctly. TDA's answer line is clogged up all of the time. Can anyone here share some insights?

Hi... I havent used TD before, and I know you said you set them up correctly but have you checked how long the stop loss order is set for? sometimes you need to set it for an amount of time or set up so its 'good till cancelled' etc. 

Not sure that I am of any help but thought I would make the suggestion anyway...
