with IB i have a live and paper trading accounts.

within OQ there is also live and paper trading modes.

so if i wanted to paper trade live data would i select:
1. IB Live & OQ Paper - trades will not actually be executed @ IB?

2. IB Paper & OQ Live - trades will get executed on my paper account

3. IB Paper & OQ Paper - trades will NOT get executed @ IB?

EDIT: well, what I am getting at is, when OQ is in paper trading mode, it accesses the live data from IB TWS (regardless if its paper/live) and trades but does NOT send orders to IB TWS correct?

obviously if i selected live for both it would be live. just confused on the paper trading part.

Thanks for the help!

ok so after perusing the help file (should've checked first :/ ) i have come to the conclusion that

1. IB Live & OQ Paper - will use IB live data, simulate trades

2. IB Paper & OQ Live - will use IB paper data, and will execute to IB paper account

3. IB Paper & OQ Paper - will use IB paper data, and will simulate trades

Yes, exactly. OQ paper mode is provider live data feed + OQ simulated execution.
