IB connection issue



  • Hello,

    I am encountering issues retrieving the ib data feed.
    I have run the ibtest.py script, it does not connect:

    0_1522416260012_Sans titre.png
    TWS is running on port 7496, ActiveX and Socket clients are enabled.
    I am using anaconda for python 3 64.

    Thank you for your help.

    *UPDATE problem solved:
    TWS language was set to french. I have set it to english which fixed the problem.
    I guess this is related to special characters encoding issue.

    The IB API is far from being any real API ... but it was never expected that the messages would be different when using different interface languages. Good to know.

    So far changing things in API according to display language was a Microsoft Delikatessen ...
