BrokerTransmit Program Explained

The BrokerTransmit feature allows account holders to publish their live manual trades as a strategy on C2 without needing to enter the orders on C2. Every manual trade in the brokerage account appears as a trade signal on the strategy, and anyone can subscribe to the resulting strategy and AutoTrade it in real time just like any other strategy. 

  1. Signals that are sent to the strategy on C2 will be entered as market orders. Stop/limit orders are not currently supported.
  2. Existing strategies can be used or a new strategy can be created for the user's manual trades. 
  3. There can be up to only one Leader strategy per brokerage account.
  4. The user can select any combination of asset classes in a Leader strategy. (e.g. user could choose to publish only his futures trades as a Leader, even if he also manually trades stocks).
  5. AutoSync will sync the Leader's brokerage account manual positions with the Leader strategy.
  6. Anyone on C2 can subscribe to a Trade Leader strategy just like any other strategy.
  7. Trade Leader accounts cannot AutoTrade their own Leader strategy because they are already labeled as the strategy publisher.
