Good day

Using Multicharts, Is it possible to read some status from an IB account.

Info to read and get from IB
- Margin utilisation
- Margin Max allowed
- Open position
- Orders filled
- filled price
- order cancellation status
- Ect.

I know it could be done using an API, but for sure I dont know how, if it is possible, to interface Their API with Multicharts.

I want to get a solid trading engine and I think this acccount management section is essential for my project.

Any work as been done in account management? Any expert or consultant I could contact?

Any help appreciated

Martin

You can get a lot of what you asked for by looking at the help:



For the rest, a live chat with MultiCharts team could answer it. They have a lot of support for IB, it's a major platform for them. I don't use IB any more so can't be of further help.

Please report your findings when you find the answers.
