the IB datafeed

  1. Hi,

    I'm using a 3rd party software to send in orders to the IB via the API. I have about 100 stocks that I'm trying to trade, however I'm not able to send in orders for all the stocks. The problem is that I'm not getting the data for everyone of these stocks. I was wondering if anyone has had a problem similar to this and if so would a datafeed like eSignal be worth it, or should the IB feed do the trick?

  2. Hi Bluegar3,

    There are some symbol limit restrictions unless you choose to pony up so your limit can be extended. I can't remember what the limits are - sorry. It's possible that you have exceeded the limit and that is why some don't update.

    My best regards,
