IB Autotrading Advisor Account problem

Postby spreadtrader » 11 May 2007

When my system sends order to IB I see allocation profile box is empty and order goes nowhere. Does the program support IB advisor account?

Could you provide me with a screenshot of this allocation profile box and a screenshot of the sample with the necessary parameters?

A similar question.

Auto trading order is not executed.
Please see my screen shot.
What is "invalid or missing IBCustAcctNo"?
And how can I set up?
What is "Settings"?

I spoke with customer service today and found they send empty string with FA order parameters using IB APIs. That explains why autotrading is not working for advisor accounts.

I prepared and sent them detailed screenshots.

This is quotes from IB API user guide:

void placeOrder(long id, String action, long quantity, String symbol, String secType, String expiry, double strike, String right,String multiplier, String exchange, String primaryExchange, String curency, String orderType, double lmtPrice, double auxPrice, String goodAfterTime, String group, String faMethod, String faPercentage, String faProfile, String goodTillDate)


Parameters
.....................................

group - specifies the order's "Financial Advisor Group." Send an empty string if not an FA.

faMethod - specifies the order's "Financial Advisor Allocation Method." Send an empty string if not an FA.

faPercentage - specifies the order's "Financial Advisor Percentage." Send an empty string if not an FA.

faProfile - specifies the order's "Financial Advisor Profile." Send an empty string if not an FA.

MultiCharts doesn't support advisory account so far.
