Buying/Selling option Spreads vs. legging-in?


Will we gain the capability to purchase/short option spreads without having to leg into them? Or is that permanently restricted based on the features supported by C2’s compatible brokers? Thanks.




Bumping this for Matthew, this is important for several systems on C2. An answer would be appreciated.



Sorry, VG, both for the slow reply and for the answer which surely won’t please you.

It is unlikely that we will be able to add anytime soon the ability to enter all-in-one combo spread orders into C2.

This restriction is mostly a result of the limitations of our partner broker APIs. For now, legging into positions is the best that we can recommend.

Thanks for the reply, Matthew. I can understand how complex it would be to implement.
