Copy new position as market order.

Post by kally »

My trading system is working with limit orders in CFD's, but I need to copy the trades to futures. I think I cannot use the offset function for this, because the offset changes daily. What I would like is that as soon as the CFD is taking position, that a market order for futures is sent to IB. Is this possible?

You could use the sync mode for this (attach ib_position_sync) instead of copy mode (ib_order_copy) and link this MT symbol to the IB contract.

But there is a problem: The syncmode makes only sense, when you run it exclusively, so no ib_order_copy running from
any other MT running.
