TWS futures combo - different underlying

    Is anybody here using IB TWS for combo's (spread) on similar, but different underlying?

    Examples would be 2 leg Steepeners or Flateners on ZF,ZN, ZB?

    or ... COIL vs. WTI (or 2 * QM)?

    ... is it possible to construct a combo in TWS with legs on different futures contracts?

    (searching on ET found nothing)

    Thank you in advance for the help/advice.
  2. I think it depends on the pair - you can create a spread combo ticker using Generic Combo and trade that ticker to trade the spread. I don't think all futures pairs are available for it though. You may try creating the spread ticker for the pair you are looking at.
