    Integrate TWS API with a Ninjatrader 7 Strategy

    I am trying to connect to the Interactive Brokers TWS API locally on my machine, and I want to place an order from Ninjatrader 7 to the API.

    I need to add references to the API in Ninjatrader, otherwise I get "The type or namespace cannot be found" when I try to compile the strategy.

    Can anyone tell me which references I should be adding, and how / where to add them so I can reference classes from the API, and ultimately call methods from them?

    Thank you.

    Hello blunt,

    Thank you for the post.

    Using the TWS API through a NinjaScript is not supported. if the error message is giving you an error along the lines of

    "could not find xxx.dll" you must search your C drive for that dll and add it to the references list.

    NinjaTrader has already developed an API interface for TWS (That is the reason you can connect to it from the user interface). If you connected to your Interactive Brokers account through NinjaTrader you can use the supported NinjaScript methods to place orders to your Interactive Brokers account:

    https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...er_methods.htm - All NinjaScript order methods.
    https://ninjatrader.com/ConnectionGu...nnection-Guide - Interactive Brokers connection guide.

    Please let me know if I may be of any further assistance.
