multiple IB accounts

  1. Hi all,

    Just wondering if any of you know:

    I have multiple IB accounts, and would like to be able to place the same order into every account by placing the order once. I use NinjaTrader right now as a frontend.

    I heard there is a "friends and family" account that IB offers, but I'm not sure if that is what I need to get the job done.


  2. Hello RT. I just came across a reference to something called IB_Direct that claims to be able to send simultaneous orders to 3 IB accounts. Check it out at direct.htm

  3. In Ninja you can create account groups which will accomplish what you're looking for.
