Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

thinking about switching to IB

Does interactive brokers still do the mandatory disconnect every night? I often leave my systems unattended for days at a time and logging in each night to reconnect is not something i want to deal with

Yes, the TWS still needs the daily disconnect. I personally use the IB Gateway which does not need the disconnect. Works nicely = stays permanently connected and recovers when i run through the daily DSL reconnect.

Cheers Michael
