    Addon to connect NinjaTrader with InteractiveBrokers Family and Friends Account

    I resendly created a family and friends account with Interactive Brokers (IB).
    With this account you can combine several sub accounts to trade them together. So atm I have three accounts:
    Fxxxx --> Masteraccount
    Uxxxxx --> First sub Account
    Uyyyyy --> Second sub Account

    When you choose in IB 'Alle' then the trades are split between all accounts according to the amount of money on the account. You can also make groups so in the example 'PZ SZ' is Uxxxx and U yyyy together.

    Uxxxx --> 300,000 Euro
    Uyyyy --> 700,000 Euro

    When you buy 10 contracts CL for example and would go with 'PZ SZ' then on Uxxxx 3 contracts would be traded and 7 on Uyyyy.

    My problem is now when I connect with NT to IB I can trade all single accounts but its not possible to click 'Alle' or 'PZ SZ'

    I contacted the support and they told me it could be programmed because the IB API gives this information.

    Has anybody an addon that can do this or can programm it?
    I would be clad if you could contact me to talk about the price.

    I also attached a picture to makes things more clear.

    Best wishes

          I contacted a few programmer but apparently nobody can do that ... can you confirm that this can be done in theory?

          Is NT planning to implement this feature because otherwise Family and Friends Account support is quite useless and also it shouldn't be to hard to implement I would assume.


            Hello TZoell,

            In theory, yes, this would be possible.
            The Addon would place the orders to multiple sub accounts simultaneously through the addon approach. You could monitor the accounts and look for changes to orders / positions. You could detect an order placed to one sub account and use this to trigger orders to other sub accounts.

            This would be a very large complex bit of software, but yes, I do believe this would be possible.

            This would use the accounts and add event handler methods to the accounts OrderUpdate, ExecutionUpdate, PositionUpdate events.
