    Hello
    is there a work around with TWS for this problem
    TWS dont allow API to connect NinjaTrader or any for "zero commission" trades under IBKR Lite
    i been using Ninjatrader to send orders from strategy Trading to TWS for long time Now that most brokers offers zero-commission, incld IB, but they dont want to allow API to be connected
    I like to see anyone experience the same issue and have a resolution in place, beside moving to other brokers

    thank you and appreciate it

    Thk you "guru" for the response. ok. i see in that link you provided it does show it won't have API feature for IBKR Lite
    I do a high # of Day Trades per day, like 50-60 a day, so is crazy number, so zero commission is a big deal :(( but some folks here say, smart routing gives better fill. but both my entry and exit are LMT orders
