IB

Hi Toast. The problem with IB is if the auto daily logoff thing. To restart the data feed after the auto logoff you have to restart ninjatrader as well. If you don't shut Ninja down before restarting TWS it says "loading" on the charts that use IB data. I use the ^tick symbol from IB. If I don't use their data for anything, as you say it can just be reconnected.

The other problem is if I am out and the auto logoff kicks in my stops won't move to breakeven until the connection is re-established as Ninjatrader confirmed in an earlier post.

In any case, I did find this TWSStart which I just installed from this thread. I will test it out this week to see if it works. Hopefully this IB auto logoff issue will be a thing of the past.

I LOVE the IB thing with OCO and I couldn't bear to have it any other way.

Out in Bangkok we do have our fair share of internet/power outages, although it's been a while since I had one. My PC has done a few random reboots though and I don't even pick up the phone if it happens when I'm in a trade as I always have an OCO on for this very reason.

I know IB commissions aren't the best but it really is a trouble-free service in my opinion.

So you are entering those oco trades directly into TWS and not NT7?

When people say that "hard stops" are "are visible in the order book", how and who can view them? As far as I (rather basically) understand it, the order book contains limit orders. How would one view stop orders? Can they be viewed on a platform such as IB?

I ask because today (after I purchased NT Live) I found out about this issue.

thanks

I have a UPS, so the power never goes out straight away, I have 5 mins to take evasive action.

I guess the phone likes could go down too - but I also have 2 internet connections and a load balancing router that should switch over when a line drops.

Fact is - there's always scope for it going down at the wrong time. It hasn't yet and I just try to get as safe as possible.

Can someone clarify the visibility of the stop orders

Hi,
This thread is a bit old but I second the question about the visibility of the stop orders.

How can a stop order be spotted before it was triggered? A stop limit will enter the order book as it reaches its price and a stop market order (which as far as I know is a regular stop?) will enter the tape as a market order after execution, right?

Thanks in advanced!
