Default Historical CFDs data from Interactive Brokers

Hello everyone,

I have recently opened an IB account, but I would like to manage it through NT8.

It is assumed that IB provides historical data, but when I try to open a chart in NT8, an error appears that says: Error requesting bars and without market data permissions for the "asset".

I have verified the connection between IB and NT8 doing some trades in TWS of IB, and it works fine. I can see executed orders in NT8. So the connection seems to be well.

I am checking the connection using CFDs and Futures, but no sucess.

At the moment I am using a demo account, until all this works.

Futures, foreign currency and options trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or lifestyle. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. View Full Risk Disclosure.

CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations, unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, since the trades have not been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown.
