I view managing strategies as a business and as such set up a new Interactive Broker (IBKR) account as such. In doing so I then linked my broker account to my strategies only to find that I could not manager two separate strategies with live feeds. IE I would like one strategy specific to Stocks, and another specific to options traders. Then ideally a third with a combination of the two, but lets stay focused on the first two first.
In doing so I was then told I need to create sub accounts to do what I wanted. Turns out you can not create sub accounts unless it is a personal account, but you can add traders and create new accounts and allocate to funds to them. This was the advised solution. I finally finalized that this week, only to then go and link the new account set up to my strategies to be told that you can not link multiple accounts from the same broker even if it is to a different strategy.
I guess I am just complaining but how does anyone go about managing multiple strategies while leveraging Broker transmit. I can do manual entries yes, but creates a lot of extra work and also does not get me the Trades Own money badge when I am.
