    Simultaneous live connection to IB with NT 7 and NT 8?

    Is is possible to connect to an IB account simultaneously on the same machine using NT7 and NT8? I know that NT 7 goes through TWS and that NT 8 has another adapter it can use, but can they both co-exist? And if a live order is placed in one, will it show up in the other one and also in TWS (if placed through NT8)? Thanks!

    Hello Trader_55, and thank you for your question.

    If you have two instances of TWS open on different ports, NinjaTrader 7 can connect to one port and NinjaTrader 8 can connect to another.

    Whether you can have two instances of TWS open on the same account, and whether they communicate with each other, is dependent upon TWS. I did not test this configuration, as we do not provide support for their platform.

    However, just now, I have tested the following configuration:

    Instance 1
    Account 1
    Port 7496
    NinjaTrader 7 connected

    Instance 2
    Account 2
    Port 7497
    NinjaTrader 8 connected
