haljordan,
what chart type and how many days back did you load? Tick based charts will create a pacing violation after trying to load more than a couple of days at a time.

i was trying to load a 1600 tick chart for 5 days.....it was taking too long with pacing violations.

The quality of the IB data feed is, in my opinion, not good enough for tick charts. Due to the snapshots of this data feed, tick charts only give a false sense of accuracy.

I was wondering what you guys think of MC .NET for TWS. Good, bad, like it or not?

I have to agree... IB is great for daily charts, bad for everything else when it comes to charting... great for trading to be honest(due to low costs and access to product base) but only as long as you dont use their data for charting or their Level 2/3 for making decisions... best to go with IQFeed for that type of thing...

What are the differences if any between a 5min. chart from IB feed and a 5min. chart from IQ feed?

Sorry to bump an old thread, but it seemed the appropriate thread for my question. Is there a way to trade from a DOM populated by IQfeed, but routing orders to IB?

Do I just need to make sure the symbols are exactly the same in quotanager and the broker? Or is what I want to do impossible due to the DOM being connected to the broker?

Sabens,

as far as I am aware the DOM will only show broker data.

Regards,
