    Anyone trading futures with IB?

    I like IB universal account and currently been trading stocks with IB but want start trading futures as well. I do not want to open another account with different broker to trade futures, but looks like I may have to. IB just does not have the right trading platform to easy manages trades.

    I trade the futures using 3 min and 1 min time frame. I need to trade off the charts and need to submit orders using attached orders or bracket orders and easy adjust it using charts. This is not do able with TWS.

    I have tried Ninja with their API and just having too much issues.

    Anyone doing similar with IB and have success?
