TWS Data Options

Postby aljafp » 26 Sep 2007

hi,
I upgraded to the latest MC version.

I noticed for IB Datafeed, there are options for
"TWS bar timestamp" for Historical Data and
"Use server timestamps" for Real-Time Data

What does these new options do ?

Should i check these options ?
I am using TWS version 877.

thank you

Hi,

If you are using TWS 877:

1) For history, the field TWS Bar Timestamp must be left unchecked.
2) For real-time, it is up to you: you can leave the field Use Server Timestamps either checked or unchecked, depending on whether you want to use the timestamps from the server.

Thanks, no wonder i've been having some data discrepancies...

I would appreciate greatly if:

1. Such information be made available in your release notes.
2. Please update your help videos which teaches users how to setup data sources.

thank you

Hello,

The reason why there are no notes regarding the dll for the new TWS 877 is that TWS introduced changes after MC 2.1 was released.

There are plans on updating video tutorials. However, at the moment I cannot give any ETA on that.

We apologize for the temporary inconveniences.
