IB - How do you get around 100 stocks max

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by TRADERCJ, Oct 6, 2007.



    I am using IB with QuoteTracker. Maybe I am missing something, but everytime I try to add more than 100 stocks I get an error. The only way it seems to get around this is to create another portfolio within QuoteTracker. This wouldn't be all bad, but it takes so long for chart data to load.

    "All customers receive 100 concurrent lines of real-time market data (which can be displayed in TWS or via the API). After the first month of trading, high-volume traders may receive additional lines of market data, calculated as follows:

    Maximum ((Monthly Commissions/8), 100)

    For example, if you generate USD 16.00 in monthly commissions, you will receive 100 lines of market data. If you generate USD 400.00 in commissions, you will receive 100 lines of market data. But if you generate USD 840.00 in commissions, you will receive 105 lines of market data."
  3. solution would be to get a real real-time data vendor.

    IQFeed is an economical solution.
