Description

Hello
 
Request: Margin an account info be available within Multicharts.
 
I'm using IB as broker.  I did install IB Gateway to connect to the broker.  Problem, with IB GateWay, I don't have access to my margin and position on broker account info.  I had the info from IB when i was using TWS.
 
Margin control is a very important part for me and a follow-up is a necessity.  At the moment, i need to close IB Gateway, re-open TWS, look at margin, the restart IB Gateway.
 
These informations are available from IB using the API.  It should be possible to get and compile it to be available within MC

Good feature request. This is indeed possible with the IB API, since version 9.40, which got released in December 2007.

Especially for IB, which uses fluctuating margin values instead of the fixed ones offered by other brokers, it would be very handy and important to be able to have a PowerLanguage keyword like MarginRequired or something else.

MC Team - This is a very important feature for my work as well. Should not take much effort from you guys to implement it. But it will be a big help to us traders. Kindly roll this out in your next beta version. 100 Thanks.....
