Not working TWS_KeepLIVE


TraderSU View Post
This tweak fixes the extra ghosty click on TWS ; I call it ghosty because I could never re-produce it but very often I was finding a pending trade on my TWS (caused by an extra left click on bid/ask). Adding an extra messagebox with 10s timeout seems to resolve this issue.

I've included the source code & 32-bit compiled EXE inside the zip for those who don't want to install AutoIt.

Enjoy!


Hi, thanks for your post. I tried attached zip files by extracting. It does not work. My OS is Win 7, 32bit.
Thanks

Zip has two files. Which one did you try? Can you install autoit & try the .au3 version if .exe is not working. What exactly u mean by "not working"? App doesn't launch. It launch but doesn't extend session?

Not enough information to provide you any serious help. Wish I knew telepathy.

Hi
I've actually got two au3 files. One for the normal account the other for the sim account.
I run both accounts at the same time, so both au3 files at the same time.
On the sim account, the am/pm bullets are lower so different coordinates need to be selected.

Yes, it goes 20 pixels more on Y co-ordinate as IB TWS will show that red band.

Does not seem to work anymore ...

I've run the latest au3 file posted on (Windows 7, TWS) using a real trading account (not paper). And when the warning comes up, I get several window pop ups that try to extend the TWS time but then they close. Then TWS shuts off at it's prescribed time...

Is there something I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

I have noticed that my TWS is also closing down. I think this started to happen after the latest TWS update.
I suspect it is that the prompt is coming up in a different location. I will have to watch it and see what the mouse does.

Hi. I couldn't get TWSstart to work even after emailing the developer who was very helpful by the way. I am not sure why. I have no problems with IB Gateway and works like a charm. It never logs me off. How it gets around the security card issue is it edits the TWS API and sets the auto logoff 5 minutes back. So you never get the 5 minute warning because it has automatically changed it for you via code.

Cheers
DJ

If I recall, TWSSTART does not support the security card. Can't remember where it is mention.
Good luck
Martin

Sure - but I recommend restarting the app weekly once. App may get funky if you don't do that...

i see this is 3 yrs old thread, but checking if anyone have issues like mine
when doing swing trades for weeks, months, how can you reboot TWS once a week,and how would you sync strategy and open positions. I used Ninja's sync acct position=true, but it is messy, as it closes and reopen new orders

Hello everyone,

New to the forum, first time poster - i have the same question - how does one go about resynching without having to close/open and have the strategy run right away instead of waiting to close a virtual position. Also trading through TWS and find it to be a huge PITA with it's 24 hour close nag.
