There should be a way to rollback, try the reconnect again, with (hopefully) better luck this time.
I know that this may be asking a lot (and perhaps upgrading my PC will do the trick), but I have observed this behavior and handling it may make Ninja a stronger product.
Thanks, - Pete I noticed a case today that NT should have caught (or I think perhaps it should catch).
This morning, unfortunately, I hit a relatively large problem (similar to my previous problems).
As you know, IB automatically logs out on a daily basis, and so every morning, I need to reconnect. I start up IB, wait, start up Ninja, wait, and then connect - all is usually OK.
However, if the connection doesn't happen exactly as required, ALL position strategies are dumped.
This is very frustrating, as I have to spend the next half hour or so setting them up again from scratch - in addition, those stocks in IB which already have stops/limits have new stops/limits put in - meaning I have to close the existing ones.
I tried closing both programs again and then re-starting them as before, but once the dump happened, all strategies seem to be unrecoverable. Thanks, Pete Strategies are synchronized upon every connection.
Any advice on either how to avoid this, or how to get the strategies back once they have been dumped (i.e. They become unrecoverable if either of the following conditions are true - - Orders that belonged to the strategy are missing - Orders that belonged to the strategy are partially filled If the above conditions are true, the integrity of the strategy is lost therefore can't be recovered.
Ray Hi Ray - Actually, they become unrecoverable also if there is a glitch when the reconnect happens.
This has happened to me a few times if I am not VERY careful about the reconnect order.
One thing that I'm going to do is put in a more powerful PC so that (hopefully! However, there should be a way to "go back" to before the reconnect, and try to reconnect again.
