Compatibility between MetaTrader and Interactive Brokers

Overview: 

IB provides to its account holders a variety of proprietary trading platforms at no cost and therefore does not actively promote or offer the platforms or add-on software of other vendors. Nonetheless, as IB's principal trading platform, the TraderWorkstation (TWS), operates with an open API, there are numerous third-party vendors who create order entry, charting and various other analytical programs which operate in conjunction with the TWS for purposes of executing orders through IB. As these API specifications are made public, we are not necessarily aware of all vendors who create applications to integrate with the TWS but do operate a program referred to as the Investors Marketplace which operates as a self-service community bringing together third party vendors who have products and services to offer with IB customers seeking to fill a specific need.

While MetaQuotes Software is not a participant of IB's Investors Marketplace, on a collaboration with oneZero Financial System they offer the oneZero Hub Gateway to connect MetaTrader 5 with TWS. Clients interested would need to contact oneZero directly for additional assistance. Please refer to the Contact section from the following URL.

Note: Besides oneZero Hub Gateway, different vendors such as Trade-Commander and jTWSdata also offer a software which they represent, acts as a bridge between MetaTrader 4/5 and the TWS. As is the case with other third-party software applications, IB is not in a position to provide information or recommendations as to the compatibility or operation of such software.
