CFD code in MT with IB

Recommended Posts

Another question
I have 2 computers including 1 laptop.
Is it possible to run a second MT session on my laptop and retrieve market data from the TWS that is running on my other computer?
The 2 computers are on the same network.

Sorry for my bad english.....

CFDs - that is one of the few securities that we do not support

multiple PCs - sure, you can do that. in TWS API settings, specify the IP of the computer running MT as a"Trusted IP"

in MT, go to SETTINGS / Data Sources/Setup accounts, click on Interactive Brokers and specify the TWS IP Address and port - the IP address of the computer running TWS and the PORT is the one specified in TWS API settings.  Then go to SETTINGS / TRADING / ACCOUNTS, click on the Interactive Brokers entry and do the same thing there with the IP
