randot, I am looking for how to connect to my account in Interactive Brokers for chart trading and automated trading in Multicharts.
I saw the videos but those are for data feed only.
Thanks

You need to login to TWS and open MultiCharts, side by side. Then, you need to make sure IB TWS can "talk" to MultiCharts. Open the TWS, go to Tools > Configure > API > and tick Enable ActiveX and Socket clients. Now MultiCharts can communicate with TWS.

Then you need to add symbols from Interactive Brokers into the QuoteManager, and then make charts. To enable trading, right-click on the Interactive Brokers tab in the Trade Bar, and choose Connect Interactive Brokers. If you don't have the Trade Bar enabled, go to MultiCharts > File > Broker Profiles > Connect Interactive Brokers.
