Hi, if I am running SC on 2 computers will order information be visible on the charts on both computers? Can I also trade on both computers with actions being mirrored? Essentially I'm asking what and if there are any restrictions. Tks.

The answer to this is generally yes if you are referring to live trading with one of the supported Trading services.

However, it depends upon what particular Trading service you are using. Which one, assuming you are referring to live trading?

Ideally I want to use the SC Realtime Feed in conjunction with two live trading accounts, an FXCM account and a futures account with one of the following (preference in this order); CQG, TT, OEC or Interactive Brokers (TWS). In terms of the futures options do one or other have limitations to the above scenario?

In this case only Interactive Brokers will support this. FXCM, TT, OEC, CQG will not because simultaneous connections for the same account are not supported to our knowledge.


You can trade futures options with Interactive Brokers. We do not see a problem with that.

Ok, I was trying to avoid IB but I guess I'll need to test them out. Tks for your help

We have thought about this a little more. If you want to use one of these services:
FXCM, TT, OEC, CQG

Contact them and have them set you up a second username which has access to the particular trading account that you want to trade on two computers. This will solve the problem and allow you to trade the account on two computers.
