This is a discussion on Interactive Brokers within the Brokerages forums, part of the Commercial category; It's a shame I have to use an earlier version with NinjaTrader and I only have a Windows Mobile phone!...

Interactive Brokers,

If I could connect with you through CTCI FIX instead of TWS API - will I have the same functionality and prices?

The IBGateway client allows for FIX CTCI connections to IB over the Internet. It is a piece of software that acts as a bridge between your FIX engine and IB. The software can also be used in place of TWS to deliver market data, using the same protocols as the Trader Workstation APIs. In this scenario, you do not need to have TWS running to get API market data. IBGateway Software and the Users' Guide can be found by clicking the buttons at the bottom of the page. To find the Request Market Data API method click here.

Hello Interactive Brokers,

On your "new accounts" page, this is written: "Customers who wish to trade on behalf of their children are encouraged to open a Friends & Family Advisor Account with a Trust client account for each child".

Are there any regulations about who or how someone can open an account? Is there a minimum age for the child? Can a parent open an account with little or no trading experience? Who is taxed on winnings (hopefully not losses!), the child or the Trustee? Could I perhaps see a contract please?

Thanks in advance for taking the time to read.

Although if you call our London office we will see if we can accomodate your particular child trust tel 020 7 776 7801.

While you're around, IB, can the basic (free) version of Ninja be used to trade live through your system, or is there an alternative for trading directly from charts?
