    Using TWS, I want to simultaneously sell 2 NQ contracts, at certain price and after sell
    order is executed I want to buy 1ES contract at market price.
    Is this possible, if so what type of order is this and how do I do it?
    Will Bracket Trader or Ninja Trade do this for me?

    Thanks, Tad K.

    You cannot do this on the TWS. The closest way to set this up would be: say if you wanted to sell 2 NQ at 1253. You could make the ES order conditional on NQ Last Price >= 1253.50
    ...
    Probably not what you want.

    Not sure if Bracket Trader and Ninja Trader can do it.

    If that's just what you want to do, here's a program.

    To test it on the edemo, set a price lower than the bid as the sell price. The port is set to 7495 to prevent an inadvertent live order.

    I tried to attach the file directly but elite wont allow it, so just pm me for a copy.
