    Hello pstrusi,

    Thank you for your post.

    According to our connection guide to Interactive Brokers for the latest version of NinjaTrader 8, you must have at least one of the following standalone Interactive Brokers API Software versions installed (browser versions are not supported):
    • TWS 973.2
    • IB Gateway 973.2h
    Here is the link to that connection guide: https://ninjatrader.com/ConnectionGu...nnection-Guide

    If you need to update to the latest version of NinjaTrader 8, please follow the instructions below
    • First, copy your license key from NinjaTrader under Help> License Key then exit NinjaTrader
    • Click on the link: http://ninjatrader.com/PlatformDirect
    • Enter your license key and press Submit
    • Select 'NinjaTrader 8'
    • Select 'Download'
    • Critical: Before running the installer, ensure NinjaTrader is closed.
    If you have any additional questions or inquiries regarding NinjaTrader, please do not hesitate to contact us.

        Hello pstrusi,

        Thank you for posting with that follow-up question.

        The versions that I had listed are the versions that would be needed to create an Interactive Brokers connection. Please note that Interactive Brokers may have released an updated version of TWS however the version needed to connect with NinjaTrader 8 is TWS 973.2. You can download that by clicking here: http://www.ninjatrader.com/ninjatrad...tion-973-2.exe

        If you have any additional questions pertaining to NinjaTrader, please do not hesitate to contact us.

          Hi Brendan.

          I was in the IB webpage to check TWS versions. It turns out that the latest stable version is the: 972.1v and the latest version is 978.1i . So I wonder, if IB considers as the stable version the 972.1v, Have you had not any issue with the version suggested by you: 973.2h ?

          Thanks

            Hello pstrusi,

            Thank you for responding with those additional notes.
            I am not aware of any other versions that would be compatible with NinjaTrader 8 besides the versions I have listed which are the current versions that create a successful connection (as are listed in the connection guide).
            I was able to find the following quote from Interactive Brokers public website regarding the version of TWS to use:

            Found at this publicly available website: https://ibkr.info/article/1978

            Q: Is Ninja Trader compatible with all versions of TWS?
            A: No. There is an inherent lag between the time IB releases a TWS update and that at which any third-party vendor can reasonably respond with a corresponding software upgrade. In the case of Ninja Trader, its application is compatible solely with the standalone TWS platform (not the browser based) and to determine the particular version currently supported, please refer to the following Ninja Trader website link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/Connectio...nnection-Guide
