    Hi everyone. IB now provide one-month data backfill. I would like to know how to get the backfill data into tradestation. What I can achieve now is get the real-time data into TS, but it needs my computer power-on all the time.

    Thanks for any comments.
  2. Do you mean Tradestation 8, 7 or TS2ki?
    For TS2ki there are tens of soultions, and for
    you can use metaserver,Ondemand server for
    realtime and backfill with historic data.

    Owndata2 For Tradestation 8, opens eSignal
    , Interactive Brokers (TWS), Patsystems (J-Trader)
    , TradeStation2000i GlobalServer, CyberTrader,
    Universal DDE, ASCII (plain text) and other data
    sources to you. It allows you importing ASCII files
    to native TradeStation 8 data

    Hi Nana. I am using TS 2000i and hypertrader tools, but not clear that there exit the tool to help TS2000i do backfill with IB feed. Could you specify it? Thanks.

  4. ONE MONTH?! where do you read/see that?
