multiple FCM's?

    I have a question for any CTA's in the forum.

    How do CTA's trade multiple clients accounts with multiple FCM's?
    Can the accounts all still be traded under one master account? Can the CTA still only use one charting platform and place one trade which allocates to all the clients accounts accordingly? I am unfamiliar with how it works and am just looking for some insight to this.

    Here is an example of what I am refering to.

    "Clients will be required to have, or to open an account
    with, an FCM prior to commencing activities with the Advisor. In order to participate in the
    Advisor’s Index trading program, clients will be able to choose their own FCM with which
    they will maintain their accounts. Furthermore, Clients may choose an introducing broker of
    their choice, however, the Client is under no obligation to use an introducing broker."
