No you can the advice was wrong obviously i got different advise or maybe i dont have exactly what you want to do.

I have 1 account in total (in fact you can split 1 account to 2 also). (i considered this to split equities and futures).

I have 2 users to this account.

1 User runs automated.
1 User is manual.

Both access same account and can see trades etc from running ones.

For instance i can logon to webtrader and still have the automated trader account running no disconnects etc.

You need to do this through account management and add a new user first then config this user etc to have required access.

Does the second user have to pay a second set of subscription fees? Maybe that is where I got hungup last time I looked at this, because for instance I am not sure it is worth a whole set of fees to be able to use mobileTWS on my phone.

I'm looking again now at the admin interface.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
