crack spread in IB

  1. Anyone trade the crack spread in IB?

    I don't think SpreadTrader supports inter-commodity spreads; it only allows me to enter calendar spreads on the same underlying.
     
  2. Try using the generic combo feature. Simply right click on an empty line on the TWS and fill in the blanks. If inter-commodity spreads don't work here, then they probably won't work on any of the features. I would send a ticket and ask about intercommodity spreads.
     
  3. I just tried the generic combo feature and it won't let me do two different underlyings, it only does calendar spreads for the same symbol. :confused:

    I'll send an email to IB and see what they say.
