    API feed from TOS and IB

    Can anyone direct me to a guide showing exactly which data is available from TD Ameritrade and Interactive Brokers using the APIs? I'm specifically interested in whether or not BuyingPower and CashValue are available, as I've seen documentation suggesting that these are not available from all brokers.

    Welcome to the forums SBoroman!

    BuyingPower and CashValue and other account items have their availability documented in the Accounts tab page of the Help Guide.

    Accounts Tab - https://ninjatrader.com/support/help...TheAccountsTab

    We also have a data by provider grid which you also may find helpful.

    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

      A few more questions . . . 1) Are keys required to connect to TD Ameritrade or Interactive Broker accounts? 2) Can you see 'live' data from other brokers if using the free version of NT8? 3) Can NT8 access multiple TDA and IB accounts from the same instance? Thx!

        Hello SBoroman,

        Thanks for your questions.

        Brokerage connections are limited to what is configured with your license key. If you are using the SIM license key, you can connect to any provider and multiple providers, but you will not be able to live trade.

        If you have a live license entered in the platform, you will only be able to connect to the brokerage configured with that key. If you would like to trade live with multiple brokers, you can use a Multi Broker License to do so.

        You can contact platformsales [at] ninjatrader [dot] com to discuss reconfiguring your license to trade with another broker or to discuss getting a Multi Broker key.

        Connection Guides can be found here - https://ninjatrader.com/Help-Connection-Guides

        Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
