Margin status, IB broker, IB GateWay and MC

Postby arjfca » 26 Jan 2011

Hello
I have install IB GateWay to resolve the daily update or the restart of TSW.

Using TSW, I was able to see my margin status, account situation, open orders and open position.

Now, with IB Gateway, I could see my open orders and positions using the "Order and Position Tracker", but how about the margin usage and account status?

Any hint appreciated
Martin

Dear Martin,

You cannot see margin usage and account status in MultiCharts. You may want to contact IB with this question.

Dear Martin,

If you want to see these values in MC, you can post a feature request in Project Management.
