Is Hedging Allowed at QuantConnect?

I have a few basic questions:

1) Can I hold a buy trade and a sell trade at the same time for S&P, DowJones, and other trading instruments?
2) Can I have multiple buy trades with different stops losses and take profits?

1) You can trade across two different ETF's but not on the same asset. I think this is illegal in real trading but I can't remember its name.

2) Yes you place stoploss orders separately at the moment they aren't linked to the opening orders. So they can all have different limits. You'd use an OrderType.Stop and create a new order object to place the trade - I'll try post an example later today. Please see the university Limit Orders example for advanced order types.
