Chart Trading multiple IB accounts simultaneously

Hey guys,

I need your help with finding a chart trading platform.

You see I am trading/managing 6 different Interactive Brokers accounts (different, not a Master + sub-accounts relationship) simultaneously and I need to find a platform, that would allow me to:

1) Initiate a position via CHART TRADER, which would replicate the entry orders and initial STOPs across all my Interactive Broker accounts (TWS)

2) Manage all my positions via single window CHART TRADER simultaneously (move STOP orders, move LMTs) meaning any ORDER MODIFICATIONs/CANCELLATIONs are replicated across all my IB accounts


I am currently using Ninja Trader to achieve point 1) but cannot do both 1) and 2), have to manually move the STOPs in each separate IB TWS which is a bit tedious especially when I use some of the very fast intraday momentum strategies.

Do you guys know of any technical solution or platform that would help me achieve both points?

Just use something like this:

But add a few more lines of code to submit orders across multiple accounts simultaneously.

Other option is to switch to a different broker that supports this natively on the broker side.


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.

thanks Mike for your suggestions, I will look at that if I decide to go Elite

still I would prefer a front-end platform to support it natively and will seek this soultion first, if available

eSignal has a nice chart trader but it wont send orders to multiple different IB accounts at the same time.

Dont know about Multicharts for example, it has a Chart Trader but dont know much about its capabilities.
