MetaTrader Orders directed to IB

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by scalpmaster, Apr 13, 2008.

  1. My trading systems are programmed as MetaTrader4 Expert Advisors(EA). Is there a way to interface & execute the same trade orders from a MT4 platform to my IB acct?
  2. nope not unless IB offers meta. Call fxdd or someone.
  3. Thank You for the link. MT4 EAs can run 24/5 on Virtual Private Servers but IB logs everyone out once a day. How would the connectivity for orders from MT4 EA be affected and reconnected when IB restarts (How can IB restart automatically)?
  4. RedRat


    There are multiple tools for auto-starting IB TWS and maintaining it 24/5 without restarting. My favorite is IBController. You can find latest version if you register in yahoo group TWSAPI. There is a file list section with many similar programs.
