Trading Spreads / Self-made Combos on IB

Discussion in 'Trading' started by polpolik, Aug 4, 2011.

  1. Hi Guys, is there a way on IB to create your own spread combination (if that's what you call it) ...

    I'm trying to accomplish something like

    Buy 2 NFLX
    Sell 1 AAPL

    or Buy 2 IWM, Sell 1 SPY

    And IB will automatically calculate the Bid and Ask price for the spread.
    So I can just execute accordingly.

    click on it , choose combinations, stock/stock.
