Since last IB TWS update orders and profits not shown.

Postby Erik Pepping » 16 Nov 2012

Since the last IB TWS updates (multicharts 8.0 last version) order that are filled do not show anymore, the attached stop loss and take profit are canceled for some reason and the profit/loss are no longer shown.

Do you use the webbased login of TWS?

Maybe unrelated but I have an issue with the data of AEB exchange in TWS that is not showing some datafields in TWS. And therefore also not plotting the AEB charts anymore in multicharts.

I use the latest MC8 and the latest Java. I already reported this to MC helpdesk and there are investigating.

Solution for the meantime is to use the previous version of TWS.

I use version 932 of the webbased login and this works ok.

Ok, I also used the desktop version in the past, but to downgrade to the previous version in case of problems was a lot of work. And also to keep up the updates was a hassle.

So I changed to the webbased login. (not the webbased application, but only the login will be via a webbased dialog).

It is very easy to load the previous version and updates are automatically (not always good but still). And other advantage is that you always have the same settings when you load TWS via the webbased login on another pc.

It is worth a try to fix the problems you have right now. (untill MC has a fix)
