View Full Version : No connectivity to IB ? Newbie
01-03-2005, 01:51 AM
I cannot seem to get NTrader to connect to my TWS.
I set it up as listed in the instructions as far as API settings - and port number, account # etc.
I tell it stock - symbol - I see the symbol listed in the order box - but I do not see prices moving and cannot seem to simulate an order getting filled.
Please advise asap - I am trying to simulate live trading.

Are getting connected (green box in bottom of control center) and are not getting market data or just not getting connected?

I do not see anything green in control center, although I now seem to have it working.
I guess I forgot to hit CONNECT, duh!
Just confirming it only simulates trades without registering right? There is no way it could send a real order to the TWS, correct?
Also, Does it log all the trades somewhere?
My IBTWS is up and running. Build 838.7
Ninja Light V 3.027

See the performance manager for trades. You should use V4 NT but V3 is fine for now.

I downloaded what was available - I did not know there was a 4 - I will get the 4. Thanks.

Installed version 4 and now I cannot get that to connect to IB for simulation?
