Synthetic straddle as a basket trade

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by zf trader, May 22, 2009.

  1. Does anyone know if it is possible to do this with Interactivebrokers? As we all know they write their manuals for people who already know the answer so I need a little help here. Basically I want be able to place a limit order to sell my two puts and one long futures when the price reaches my projected profit.

    I don't want to fight through this if futures options aren't supported
  2. I just set this up to trade through the "futures options combos" feature the using the "multiple" tab.
  3. While I'm on the subject what is up with the combo charts on IB? There never used to be an problems but now I can only get RTH charts, and NYSE RTH at that. For FX futures I need charts starting at 2am eastern or earlier.
