AutoTrading IB

Postby JVR » 24 Mar 2008

Hello,

I'm currently testing the autotrading on IB and so far it's working fine.
The question/problem I would like to solve is how to trade different symbols.
When I try to enable another signal on a different symbol it is overwriting the previous signal to trade the latest symbol I enabled for autotrading.
This means that I can only trade one symbol with several signals however I would like to trade on several symbols.
Could you please check?

Regards,
Jo :?

Hi Jo,

What MC version are you talking about?

Try installing the latest beta 2. It won't have this problem.

unable to fill in expiry field

Postby JVR » 28 Mar 2008

Hi,

I tried to autotrade on a different symbol from the chart but was unable to fill in the expiry field. This resulted in the error
Message text: The security "FDAX JUN 08" is not available or allowed for this account.
If this security should be available, please contact customer service.


Could you please check?

Yes, I tried it before with these settings but I need to give in the expiry and I'm unable to edit the cell.

Thanks,

An Index does not have expiry date and I dont think you can trade Index.. correct me if I am wrong.
