    Interactive brokers as data only providers

    Hi

    I trade with a TT connection which has no backfill for charts. Is there any wa to connect to Interactive brokers as a data provider like esignal rather than a broker? Trying not to pay dual brokerage subscription as i dont trade through them in short term using ninja.

    thanks
    Geo

        geoarb,
        IB can be quite limited and troublesome when used for backfill/historical.

        You may want to look at opentick for backfill/historical data.

        Not as good as dtn or esignal, but a lot better than using IB for historical


        Also... if you are testing historical tick charts .. there is a substantial difference between all providers. For sure, TT will have a different tick rate/quantity than IB and IB will differ from DTN/OpenTIck/ESignal etc.
        So charts built with backfilled bars may be different than charts built with R/T ticks from TT. (or any other feed).

        Depending on your strategy, this may make a difference.

        This usually isn't a big problem with minute based charts.

          True Zoltran, but in my experience if I use volume based bars they are a lot more consistent as the bars are then made by the charting provider.
          I currently have esignal and will test your observations. Much appreciated.

            Hi,

            my question is quite the same than geoarb´s: Is it possible to get interactive brokers as a data provider in the free NT-version? Also the IB Demo Feed would be fine for me.

            Thanks a lot

            Joerg

                Hello,

                when I´m trying to do so I just can choose between ESignal, IQFeed, OpenTick and Yahoo as Providers. As I said I´m using the free version of NT, I have´nt bought a license yet. For trading via IB a license is obviously necesarry. But is it possible to use IB´s data without a license for testing issues?

                Thanks a lot.

                  Hello,

                  This means that your license is not getting verified. Please ensure that all firewalls, and anti virus softwares, have been disabled.

                  I was also wondering who your ISP provider is?

                        Hello,

                        sorry for the late answer. At home it works fine. Thanks a lot.

                        And a very good idea to add IB´s IdealPro to NT 6.5.

                          Just a note about IB demo data: it sucks... Not to be crass but the demo data is nothing like real life.
