    I have an IB individual account. Recently I was considering divide my discretionary trading and system trading into seperate accounts. Is it possbile for IB clients to have a second individual trading account so that I can trade from two different accounts ?

    One reason is for discretionary trading I use limit orders, for system trading I use stop orders. From time to time I mix the two types and create a loss.

    Also, it is not convenient to monitor & manage the positions . Sometimes it is quite some efforts to figure out which positions are discretionary and which are systematic.
