yes its ok to keep them both on.

some people dont like traction controll and will turn it off, some people like it and keep it on, its a matter of how you like your car to react to a slide. the econ mode is great for many situations, but on steep hills the cut in HP can actually cause your vehicle to burn more gas with econ mode on.

my preferences: traction controll always on. Econ mode on in city driving and flat highway driving.
