Hi Sam,

Indeed, the issue is not IB gateway but a limitation of Multicharts. MC currently supports most instrument types so you can access IB's futures,stocks,options, forex,CFD's etc ... but not exchange traded spreads. Therein lies the problem where you have to either manually leg it or switch back to TWS to access the spreads. In both cases not really ideal.
