Data Limitations

Interactive Brokers places the following limitations on realtime and historical data accessible to 3rd party applications

  1. 1 Year Historical Data - Historical data is limited to 1 year.

    For some stocks/indices, MotiveWave® will attempt to pull additional data beyond 1 year from Google.

  2. Pacing Violations - TWS limits the number of requests for data.

    It too many requests for data occur in a short period of time, you may see error messages indicating "Pacing Violation". If this happens you may need to wait a few minutes before trying to load data again.

  3. Real Time Quotes - TWS does impose limits on the number of active tickers you have in MotiveWave® (typically around 100).

The Client ID field should be set to 0 unless there is a conflict with another charting application.

The Interactive Brokers Workspace setup is now complete. To run MotiveWave® with Interactive Brokers, just make sure you have started TWS and logged in before starting/running the Interactive Brokers Workspace in MotiveWave®.
