Setting up Real Time Trading

Postby designer01 » 03 Sep 2011

Are there any instructions on how to set Real Time Automated Trading from the chart with an Interactive Brokers Account.
I want to receive real Time data From TS while trading my IB account though.

Firstly you should configure the connection between MultiCharts and TWS. Please find attahed detailed instructions on how to do it. After that you need to configure symbol mapping: right click on IB broker profile and go to Symbol Mapping, there please choose the correct symbol from TS in Chart symbol column and correct IB symbol in Broker Symbol column by clicking on “…” button.

If you experience any difficulties, please come to our Live Chat Mon-Fri between 6:30AM and 4PM EST so we can connect to your machine remotely and help you.
