If I wanted to be long in one account and short in another account with the same currency pair, would I be able to get away with it if I were in separate accounts? One reason for wanting to do this is because some of my trading strategies actually conflict with each other. Like I may have a buy signal with one strategy then a sell signal with another strategy only a few hours later. I also thought of going long and short at the same time in two separate accounts so if the price takes off in one direction, I'd be able to cut my losses in one position and just ride the profit longer with the other position. Does anybody find that dumb? EDIT: Whoops! I meant if I had another account with another brokerage firm.
