    Interactive Brokers OR MB Trading

    Hey Gang...who's had success with either? I'm currently using IB, but get errors on NinjaTrader saying I've exceeded "Historical Data" and other quirky issues.

    I want to beleive I made a good choice with Interactive, but questioning if MB Trading is a better option...anyone care to share their experiences?

    Thx Mongo

    Hi Mongo,

    Thanks for your post.

    While I can't offer an opinion on which feed is better, I did want to jump in to clarify on the historical data error you mentioned.

    Interactive Brokers limits how much data a login can request in any given ten minute period. Once this level has been breached, you'd need to wait 10 minutes for your data status to change with Interactive Brokers, then you could continue loading data.

      Thx Kyle...so in essence, you can build up the historical data over time. I guess I'm wondering how MB Trading handles Hist Data (limitations). Thx for the reply.

          Hello golden zhao,

          Thank you for your post and welcome to the NinjaTrader support forum.

          Which sample API are you referring to? Can you provide me with some additional details on this?

              Hi golden zhao,

              Thanks for the clarification.

              This is something you'll want to follow up with IB support on. Unfortunately, it's beyond the scope of support we're able to offer.

                    thanks for the help for the information, you know I am trying to run the sample
                    http://www.interactivebrokers.com/download/ActiveXAPIQuickReference.pdf
                    i downloaded and opened, but can not run it. i am thinking if it is computer problems, but when i open it in another computer, it is the same problem.
                    i know i need some instructions, so where can find some help to run the sample?

                      golden zhao,

                      Thanks for the clarification.

                      You need to follow up with Interactive Brokers support on this. Unfortunately, I cannot offer any guidance in how to access their API in Visual Studio.
