Hello STAR_Trader,

Yes, that is possible. You need to select GTC Time in Force in Format->Strategy properties->Auto trading plugin settings.

Thanks Henry...

As a follow up question, do you know if anyone is using MC.Net along with an IB "Professional Adviser account" to auto-trade their linked customers IB accounts?

As you probably know, IB is available for asset managers and investment advisers. A customer (of theirs) can open a trading account directly with IB and then appoint/assign an asset manager/advisory to trade on their behalf.

Ideally, we would like to auto trade our clients IB accounts using the strategies we are developing/converting into C#...

Is this possible, or are there any issues you think we might encounter?

"Professional Adviser account" should be using the same mechanism as Financial Advisor, Separate Trading Limit, Linked, Proprietary Trading Group Accounts. Next version of MultiCharts .Net will introduce full support of these accounts.

Hi Henry,

Thanks for the reply.

You wrote: Next version of MultiCharts .Net will introduce full support of these accounts.

Any idea when the 'next version' of MC.Net will be launched?
