  1. Hi there,

    I've opened a Universal account by IB since last monday, could anybody tell how to trade baskets on for example NQ, or ES.

    Many Tnx.
  2. Register for data from the Midwestern Basket And Knick-knack Exchange, and you will be provided with bids and offers whereby with which you may conduct your transactions, whether they be for hedging, investment, or speculation.
  3. In IB "vocabulary" a basket is simply a collection of buy or sell orders (symbol, size, order type, etc). You assign them a name (= the basket) and all get submitted at once when you submit the basket

    So simply enter the stocks and futures you want in your basket and trade away.
