MT problems with IB paper trade mode -

Recommended Posts

I would like to train chart trading with MT using IB-TWS as data feed (in simulation) using my IB paper trade account. My problem is that I cannot get any data (Futures) using this setup.

This problem does not appear with FOREX data. Likewise there no data problems in the "real" mode with my ordinary TWS account. 

I would be very grateful for someone's help.

(I am using the most recent TWS and MTversions)

Kind regards

I believe that there is some step you have to take with IB to enable the same market data on the paper trading account as on the live account. Not sure what that is - you may want to check with IB tech support. I am sure they will know it off the top of their head.
