Using two platforms with IB simulatenously

Recommended Posts


Has anyone tried using two different platforms with IB?

I would like to use DAS for stocks and a different platform (possibly NinjaTrader or Multicharts) for forex and futures.

I am not sure whether IB supports two platforms simultaneously.

Hi , i want to do the same. Have ProRealtime running with my IB Account. 

As the IB account was opened by ProRealtime i asked them and they advised this is not an issue. 

Seems that you can connect any platform that can itself connect to IB. 

But am in Demo Phase at present, once i am convinced (very soon) then I will connect DAS to my existing Account and will report. 

Only think I read somewhere is that a Position that you trade in IB directly will show in DAS only the next day and not asap. 

But as I am not doing anything in IB directly this will not be an issue for me.
