Manual trade on TWS

Post by ctk »


I read in the installation note, that I'm advised not to "manual trade on symbols". Has anyone tried to manual trade different symbols from the Bridge? e.g only forex bridge from MT4, manual trade stocks on TWS.

Besides, If there's multiple EA trading the same symbol in MT4, I suppose the Bridge can handle it? because IB will see all buy and sell as one position only.

sorry for late answer.
This refers to manual trade a symbol in TWS that is also traded by MetaTrader for obvious reasons:
You strategy could get confused. It may mentions flat in Symbol A but when you traded A manually in TWS, you are not flat.

It is a copier.
I see no problem to trade same symbol from different EA.
