Multiple installs of TWS

  1. Anyone know if I can do this: install a second TWS with a different server. I'm in US and trade during the day, but want to trade HK without getting kicked off the servers at 11:00 or so when they automatically shut down.
     
  2. Yes, because each connection is determined by account
    number. And you do not have to modify your ´jts.ini´ file.

    But IB_Help must set one of your accounts to HK server.

    To do that you need to have two accounts. Then send a mail to the help desk (attn: coriss) and request for account X to be placed on the HK server. With the same tax ID, you'll be able to xfer funds between accounts as well.
