  • Client Portal API vs TWS / IBGateway API?
    2 projects | | 10 Apr 2021
    It's pretty clear that the Client Portal API in concert with this library, looks easy to work with from a developer's standpoint. But based on comments here from the past few months it appears that it can be flaky. So much so that a user here created a library to try to maintain the connection. But yesterday I managed to successfully stream market data for a single contract for about an hour with no issues.
