IB Combo Order

Postby alex522 » 08 Jan 2011

In IB, you can create Combination order. Is there any way in MC that we can trade this combo order?

Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

You can send only Market, Stop and Limit orders from MC. In MC 7 we have added StopLimit orders.

Thanks a lot for your reply. Will Multicharts consider this feature in future release as this is essential to spreads or arbitrage trading?

Hello.
It has been more than 2 years now. Does any latest version of MC support IB Combo orders yet?

This could be done using external IB API dll function . Not a free solution, nor an easy one, but it could be done. I'm using these dll with Excel, but they could be use within MC to. Look for Trade Commander on google. With it, trades orders do reside on IB server, not in my PC

I'm sending in one shot, My entry target, stop loss and Limit profit orders. All of them stay on IB server, even if I close my PC

Yes, actually I have used this TWSLink a few years ago when it is still free. But I have just used that for reading stock price without loading the chart and reading Level 2 data. It's a convenient wrapper of the IB API that can do almost anything that IB can do.
