I usually start NT on Monday Sydney session open and shutdown on Friday NY close. 5 Charts, one FxPro, one market analyser with around 12 instruments. I only use indicators that I have written myself although anaBarTimers is on all the charts. Memory usage hovers around ~100mb. I don't run strategies.
So to sum up, no issues with NT at all. Never crashed.
The following user says Thank You to Traderji for this post:
I am finding your words of wisdom more than 2 years after.
I am dealing with this 24/7 issue.
I am using NT with IB and running into crashes and lots of errors and wrong data from NT when IB shuts down and starts back up (every day) or IB updates its servers (1 hour every day).
NT seems not be able to handle this and the amount of errors/crashes/wrong data that result from this are even to much to mention here.
I want to use IB for my automatic 24/7 strategies . How did you manage to do this, reliable?
Are you using the ib-gateway or do you have other methods so you can trust your strategy is running safely without having to check every day for possible errors/ crashes etc?
after following your video instructions and some work i am able to connect to ib gateway. I did not have to use the demo account as mentioned in your video. I first have to log into ib gateway via ib before connecting to ib gateway via NT. I guess there is no way around this.?
While connected to the IB-gateway will the connection still go on and off while ib is updating its servers between 9-10 pm PT?
I am still having the same data problem as before:
While connecting to a chart after NT is connected to IB the latest bar has no historical data, in other words it will start as a dojo and build up from there.
