From the IBKR-API Team:
Working with many new users of the TWS API, we often see individuals attempt to set something like ‘x=reqMarketData()’ with the expectation of receiving data by calling the variable throughout their code. However, this is not the case, as the TWS API is built on an Asynchronous Framework to help reduce lag time and display the most up to date information possible.
Trader Workstation (TWS) API
Client Portal API
December 1, 2023
Financial Advisor Allocation Management has been added to the Client Portal API and relevant documentation has been added to the CPAPI documentation.
See FA Allocation Management for more details on these new endpoints for Advisors.
We have introduced a new Getting Started page to The Campus site that can help direct new users decide which API is best for them and links out on where to begin with each of them.
We have added full documentation for OAuth 1.0a for all institutional clients looking to get started with this alternative authentication method. See the OAuth 1.0a page for more details.
