Post subject:  Error validation request:-'pe' when connecting to IB

Hello,

any idea why I get: "Error validation request:-'pe': cause FA data operation ignored for non FA customers" when connecting to IB? Additionally there's error code 321 and Id 2147483647. Additionally I get no data into the quote monitor.

I double checked from a working setup that everything should be ok and used the same IB account to confirm that I have the necessary data subscribed.

Thx,
Eelofi

Thx,

It is warning message, you can ignore it.
For subscribing a data, your instrument should be with filled Exchange property (eg SMART for shares)

Thx skuvv,

that is of course possible. But in this case I doubt that due to:
- I get no error message what so ever when I add a new instrument to the quote monitor window. If the exchange was wrong, then I remember that the would be an error message
- I used the OQ predefined instruments (ie. AAPL and CSCO) and nothing happens with them either and there smart is the exchange
- the instruments I'd really want to get moving with require the multileg configuration with alternative symbol etc, I double checked that I have everything correct for an old, old version of OQ where I get tws connectivity and data ok with the same definitions

There is some IB connectivity though, when I check IB - properties - account, I see my account details fine, so on some level the IB connection is working ok.

Have been stuck with this rather basic problem now for three days...

Br,
Eelofi

Can you please make screenshots with:
1)properties of Instrument, including AltId section for IB if it exist
2)Prover Errors window after you will put Instrument in QuoteMonitor
and write version of OpenQuant from About window

Ha, ha,

I thought I answered both of the questions already in the previous post.

1) I get the same results with also the OQ predefined instruments. Including AAPL as an example where I've only added the alternative ID.

2) I get no provider error messages when I add any instrument to the quote monitor. The only error message appears on initial connection. The version is 3.17.0 64bit.

Thx,
Eelofi

I tried both variants with AltId and without, and both works:

Yes, yes,

that's how is should work. But with my setup it doesn't :(

In my opinion this just proves my point that the problem is not with the instrument definitions, but instead with the IB connectivity over all. And hence I'm a bit suspicious still with the error message.

This has probably nothing to do with the problem, but it should be noted that this was not a upgrade from an old installation, but instead a clean totally fresh installation, with nothing installed before.

Thanks for your support skuvv!

Try use demo account for IB, maybe you havn't subscriptions on your account:
login: edemo
pass: demouser

Haha,

I told earlier in this post chain that I tested with an older version of OQ that I indeed have data rights on the account. Additionally tws shows AAPL etc totally fine.

Cheers,
Eelofi

And just in case, I tried out with edemo. Same results: IB connects fine, I'm able to see the account info, but when I use the quote monitor I get nothing and no error message either :(

Found it!

The problem is that you need to also switch over to "live" as the OQ mode. I only got the error message of simulator data not functioning after a fresh start of OQ after reboot.

So skuvv, agree the IB error message was not the cause!

Txh,
Eelofi
