IB data collection stops at midnight

Postby grinmoure » 05 Aug 2008

While TWS is still running through the night (Eastern time) it seems that MC stops collecting (or IB stops sending) data at midnight. So in the morning it takes a long time to reload all my charts. Anyone encounter this?

IB reboots its server at midnight.

When that happens, there will be a momentary data disconnect.

Sometimes MC do not know how to pick up the feed when the data connection resumes.

Yes, this is the Normal re-boot time for IB. It's tough on East Coast people (midnight), here in Colorado it's only 10pm, I just wait until about 10:15pm re-start TWS and go to bed.
I used to have a Macro set up, to automatically re-start TWS for me but then IB added the digital password generator, so I couldn't use the Macro anymore.
