Can i trade my two ib accounts at the same time?

I had two connected ib account . I can use one username to log into tws and see both my accounts.
So in my case does quantopian support trading two accounts at the same time? will there be any conflict such as logging session issues?

ok, after a try it didn't work. (It says it's already in use!) What to do now?

I'm trading two IB accounts through quantopian - works fine. You just need to set up unique user/pw IDs for each account.

Quantopian can't use the same user ID for both accounts...

IB allows you to create a secondary user against an account. It's on the account management page, manage account, users, add user.

Takes a day or two for IB to approve and make the change.
