Can I use live data from one broker and trade with another broker?

No.

A broker provides you live data in their trading platforms, so that they can generate brokerage revenue from your trading. Using data from one broker to trade with another broker is cheating. Hence it is not permitted.

There are mainly 3 types of trading platforms supported by stock brokers:

  • Web (browser) based trading platforms (Trading through browser)
  • Desktop based trading platforms (Trading via an application installed on your computer)

How to trade in multiple trading accounts using Trade Bridge?

Trade Bridge does support trading across multiple client accounts, but the features are limited. Users can only place automatic orders as of now, but they cannot read portfolio status. Many users request us this feature and we are working hard towards making it available with our new product Trade Bridge. But as of now, you have following options available:

  • Most trading platforms that are available for retail traders are single user platforms. Hence to trade in multiple accounts, you need multiple machines with separate installation of Trade Bridge.
  • Another way to trade in multiple accounts is using a (NOW/NEST) dealer terminal. A dealer terminal supports multiple accounts, but you would need get a dealer terminal from your broker and need to map all clients under your dealer id. Trade Bridge supports multi-accounts trading using this approach.

If you are someone who is looking to do multi-broker and multi-accounts automated trading, we recommend you to wait for our new product.
