Goes someone here had any success in connecting Ninja to IB Gateway ?
Multicharts is fine with IB Gateway, but Ninja try to start a TWS, which is not what we want (IB Gateway is made to avoid launching the heavy TWS, when you don't need it).

Hi Sam,

I havn't tried IB Gateway with Ninja, but I don't like the way NT tells you to use an old version of TWS.

The old version of TWS has bugs in it and dosn't work properly. I have other application that won't work at all with the old TWS (ie Trade Bullet).

Now when I email Ninja support to report more bugs in NT7 they tell me they can't support it as I use a new version of TWS (even though the same issues are present with my Gain connection).

I'm getting tired on fighting NT bugs, I think I'll look at other platforms.

But sorry I coudn't answer your question anyway I would be interested to know if it can be done also.

Was wondering if @NinjaTrader ever got around to "officially supporting" the IB Gateway connection?

I've installed it today (before 16:45 CET) and no problem so far. I'll update the thread if a problem occurs.

@Obelixtrader: same problem, just like you.
The Auto Logoff Timer from IB Gateway (set to 11:45 PM by default, and do an "Auto restart") is seen by NinjaTrader as a "not so clean" connection loss, so panic and no retry.
You should tell Ninja support that reinstalling everything do not help.
@NinjaTrader should be able to help here, as it's a behavior change which can cause bad surprises.
