    Interactive Brokers Gateway

    Normally Interactive Brokers Trader Workstation requires restarts once every 24 hours. In order to avoid restarts for API users, they have introduced IB Gateway since end last year.

    http://www.interactivebrokers.com/ph...ib_gateway.htm

    MultiCharts added support for it long long time ago.

    Is NinjaTrader likely to add support for this soon? I have emailed few times, but the support team did not have much idea.

    Hello SmartPips,
    Unfortunately IB Gateway is not officially supported with NinjaTrader 7 however some of our clients has successfully connected NinjaTrader with IB Gateway and you can refer to this YouTube video to know more.

      IB Gateway

      I know about connecting that way. But the problem is NinjaTrader every now and then stops working and looks for javaw.exe process and will start up the "IB Trader Workstation" with login/password window.

      From my programming experience with IB, it is same as the old way.

      It should take little effort for NinjaTrader to add the support. Can you please either add the support or give me the .dll interface, I will modify and test and return back to you? I am experienced C# programmer.

        Hello,

        I will forward your suggestion that we add support for this connection method on to our development staff for further consideration.

          whether the method shown at the above video is feasible for using NT7 with IB gateway?

          I followed the instructions in http://www.ninjatrader.com/Connectio...nnection-Guide. but everytime NT tried to start TWS even if I had opened IB Gateway.

          could anybody share some experiences on this to use latest NT7 plus IB gateway?

            Hello snowbig,
            Unfortunately we only support standalone TWS for IB-NinjaTrader connection at this point of time. I will leave this thread open for inputs from community/forum members who has successfully connected with IB Gateway.

              Are there any plans to support the IB Gateway in the (near) future? API-wise it looks pretty much like the sames thing...

                Hello bibulous,
                IB Gateway is still officially unsupported at this point though you can refer to this YouTube video which shows how to connect NinjaTrader and IB Gateway.

                I will however send your feature request to development for future consideration.

                  you can write a little java app that fakes the TWS dialogs but does nothing. Then NT will connect to a previously opened IB Gateway instead.
                  Have done it a while ago, but not worthwhile pursuing further.

                  Best regards
                  Andreas

                    Do you have the sample code to fake? What does it do / look for?

                      Is this thread still alive?

                      Whats the latest on IB Gateway and Ninja Trader?

                      If there is no official upgrade, what's about the hack? Anyone had any joy yet?

                        Hello nkung,

                        Welcome to the NinjaTrader Support Forums!

                        The IB Gateway API is still not officially supported. The supported way would be to use the TWS Standalone application version 927.7 to connect to NinjaTrader. The following link will contain instructions and a link to download the standalone version of Interactive Brokers TWS 927.7.
                        http://www.ninjatrader.com/Connectio...tion-Guide.php

                        Our development team is still considering this for future releases of NinjaTrader, and will make sure that they know of this response.

                        Happy to be of further assistance.

                              Ninjatrader support

                              IB Gateway solves many problems that most traders that use IB Gateway, ie. fully automate etc. when trading via Interactive Brokers.

                              It is not good that Ninjatrader still has not started looking at it - even though IB Gateway came out over 3 years ago and I logged this with NinjaTrader several times over the last 2 years.

                              For me I have stopped using Ninjatrader until they fix this issue then I will relook at Ninjatrader.
