FX Charts from IB

Postby momentum » 05 Oct 2007

Should I be able to get intra day FX data from IB? I'm getting a NO DATA message. Symbol seems to be setup OK in QuoteManager. I can draw FX charts in TWS OK.

Hello,

Generally, getting intraday FX data from IB shouldn't be a problem. What symbol and in what resolution are you plotting?

I can't get any FX into MC although I can in TWS. In QuoteManager OK
1 minute charts
eg
EUR.GBP
EUR.USD

Could you please check the following:

Go to File -> Preferences -> Data Server Mode the fields 'Online...' and 'I want to download missing data' are checked

Hello,

Do you have problems plotting other symbols from IB?

Could you also go to QuoteManager-> Tools -> Data Sources -> Interactive Brokers -> Settings and make sure the field Download Historical Data is checked?

Also, when you added the currency pairs from IB did you do it manually or from the data source? If it was manually, try adding them again - from the data source.

Regards.
