If I look at the Interactive Brokers market data connections, it typically turns orange a few times, after the cash markets are closed. Looking at the market data in detail shows the following picture:
Broker/Data: IQFeed, Ninja, Own C# with API to Trade King and IB

Thanks: 22 given,
I have solved my comm problems with the post above... I am writing my own software to speed up my trading and to connect directly with TWS through a socket... Although C# is a good language... C++ will get me where I need to be and I will not be restricted to Net 3.5... I can encapsulate charts using Net 4.0 and use other C++ libraries for indicator basics... but I've really developed my own... I really need to drive to the tick level verses the chart level...
All good things start at the top of the candle... with tick of the wick!
can anyone share their current experience connecting the own application / NT to the TWS via the API? I'm curious if there are any stumbling blocks for medium sized (Daily ca. 200-300 trades a 5-30 cars) autotrading systems.
