Recent issues to download history on IB (serious slowdown)  [SOLVED]

Postby IBTrader » 01 Mar 2007

TWS 868.1 (latest release)
API 9.1
Latest multicharts (2.0 release)

Since a few days (start of the week), without me changing anything to my trading setup, the IB historical quotes downloading is VERY SLOW. It does work (I just try to get 500 bars) but this is just 10 times slower than before.

Anybody has the same issue ?

Is it a problem with IB MC Dll not being compatible with TWS 868.1? or TWS 867 ? Or maybe related to IB updating their servers (which usually happens during the weekend). Please explain

Please post a screenshot of the QuoteManager log next time when you notice that MultiCharts downloads IB data too slowly.
