automated trading w/IB broken connection

Postby LTG » 08 Sep 2009

I just started running an automated strategy and the daily forced logoff of multicharts broke the connection.

Is there a way to re synch multicharts to IB and have my chart update to show my open position?

note: this is not a solution to your question...


google twsstart for method to circumvent the IB log off.

Answered my question, while not ideal, there's an option in the backtesting section to default to broker entries. It works well enough for me to get the open positioned back under management with my automated exit strategy.

TJ - does the twsstart ensure that I never have to log out?

Dear Sirs,

Just want to remind you that "lost connection timer" in MC supports intervals up to 86400 sec (24 hours); this probably make you life easier ;)
