IB Paper Trading Brokerage Warning

Hi,

It's my first time to perform IB Paper Trading and upon login to IB I get the following console warnings:

  • Brokerage Warning: Historical Market Data Service error message:No market data permissions for ISLAND STK. Origin: GetHistory: TLT (STK TLT USD Smart)
  • Brokerage Warning: Historical Market Data Service error message:No market data permissions for AMEX STK. Origin: GetHistory: SPY (STK SPY USD Smart)

My algorithm has a SetWarmup which I guess is the what is causing IB to generate the said warnings.  I did not get these with QuantConnect's paper trading.

Any idea how to fix this?

Thanks,

Jon

Hi Jon,

To receive historical data from the IB API, you'll need to first have live data permissions in Trader Workstation (TWS).

If you are using a trial account, the only live data available is for Forex, bonds and some Cfds. However, if you have a live account, you'll need to share data permissions from the live account to the paper account so that it can also access API live and historical data for stocks.

Also keep in mind that IB sends live data to only one of your accounts. That means live data will be available in either your live or paper account, but not live and paper.

Best
