    I have an IB trading program I want to test, but the markets are closed. Does IB deliver a data feed out of trading hours?

    Many thanks.

    What would be broadcast on this feed if the markets are closed?

    What one broker that I have used did was save the previous trading day and resend it, with timing preserved. It was specifically to help developers test their applications.
     
  4. If it was purely to test/debug your software you could have chosen some other instrument, which is trading when you are running your tests. For example an instrument in Asia, or a futures instrument which runs for 23 out of 24 hours.
