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.

API access is disabled.

I just recently bought a new computer Dell laptop. Windows 8.1 version 64 bit. When installed standalone TWS 9395 and latest API 9.71 version from IB site everytime when i go to Global configuration on TWS says API access is disabled. When i drop dropdown API setting its blank and it says API access is disabled. Tried to reinstol TWS and API numerous times same result. I have a java as well installed as well. Everything works fine on my old computer windows 7 but not on new with windows 8.1. Anybody have solution for this? Thank you in advance.
