Understanding TradingView and Delayed Data

There are many reasons a user may find themselves receiving delayed data in TradingView when connecting to Interactive Brokers. In this section, we are looking to highlight a few of the common behaviors experienced, and how to resolve them.

Delayed Order Message

If a users is attempting to trade a contract while they do not have market data through Interactive Brokers, users are expected to receive a warning message that must be confirmed before the order is placed.

This does not prevent users from trading with TradingView, and is only intended as a warning message. At this time, the only method to prevent this warning message is by purchasing market data directly through Interactive Brokers.

Live Chart Data With Delayed Order Data

In some instances, customers who have purchased market data through TradingView or another resource may see that they are receiving live data in their charts. However, users may see that their Order window within TradingView is showing an orange “D” for Delayed Data. That is because the data within the trading window itself is produced by Interactive Brokers, which would not be paid for in this instance.

At this time, the only method to display live data in the Order window is by purchasing market data directly through Interactive Brokers.
