Hi,

I want to chart bonds with SC. Broker is IB. I use this symbol format: http://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=doc/IBSymbols.html#Bonds
If I open a bond intraday chart, it says download failed and disconnects from IB.

Thanks in advance,
mscha

Please contact Interactive Brokers at API@interactivebrokers.com about this.

They will need to see your TWS log file. They will provide you instructions on how to access and send the log file.

Let us know what they say.

Here is the answer from IB support (I don't know why she says "Multicharts" instead of "Sierra Chart", because I clearly said I use SC):


Hello xxx,

According to your log's the API Client (e.g. MultiCharts) only had
requested real time market data, not historical data for the US-T Bond
(localSymbol = IBCID138298428). But since Bonds only trade from 08:00 -
17:00 EST the market was closed and there was no real time data to relay
back.

Just like in TWS, using MultiCharts you can request historical data (e.g.
charting data) with the What to Show = MIDPOINT, which will then be able
to relay historical data to the API Client. as a test I utilized our
Sample Java Client which uses the same type of API Connection used by
MultiCharts. Below I have provided a screen shot that shows that
historical data can be successfully requested for the US-T Bond contract:

localSymbol = IBCID138298428
secType = BOND
exchange = SMART
currency = USD

End Date/Time = 20140115 17:00:00 EST
Duration = 3 M
barSize = 1 day
What to Show = MIDPOINT



To recap it seems MultiCharts was only requesting real time data which is
not available when the market is closed, there are no indications that any
disconnect or error caused MultiCharts to shut down and IB does provide
historical data for US-T Bonds. In this particular case it would be
advised to forward this e-mail to MultiCharts for additional assistance.

Regards,

-Angel

Yes, we actually were thinking about this and really the change we made did not really mean much because you can accomplish the same thing just by using the -BAAVG suffix at the end of the BOND symbol.

We can have a look at your Message Log. Here are the instructions to provide it:
https://www.sierrachart.com/index.php?l=PostingInformation.php#log

If we do not see anything we can help with, and Interactive Brokers support does not have the competence to help you with the problem, then there is nothing we can do to help you. From what we can tell the problem is clearly on their side.
