如何使用 Interactive Brokers 及 IQFeed 建立多報價源連結？
先前我們介紹過了 如何串接 PTMC 與 Interactive Brokers？ ，而在這篇文章當中，我們將會介紹如何用 IB 以及 IQFeed 建立多報價源的連結，如果您覺得敘述不夠完整，那您也可以參考以下影片進行操作。
使用多重串接可以讓您在不同的報價源、經紀商或者下單系統間切換、調整個別設定。由於 IB 僅顯示外匯的歷史及即時報價，我們這邊就以 IQFeed 作為來提供其他市場商品的歷史、即時報價範例。
1. 首先，你必須先下載安裝 IQFeed 客戶端的程式：
3. 接下來設定 IB 與 IQFeed 的多重連線，在登入畫面中點選設定按鈕，建立一個新的連線，為方便辨識，我們將之命名為 Interactive Brokers + IQFeed，並且母連線選擇 IB，確認 Host Name 欄位有對應到 IB TWS 的 Socket Port
4. 在母連線 IB 下建立一個子連線 IQFeed，從 vendor 清單當中選取 IQFeed ，並輸入帳號資訊。
You can create several Sub Connections with different data providers.
5. 設定完成後回到登入畫面，輸入母連線 IB 的帳號資訊之後登入 PTMC
7. 接下來會跳出 Symbol Mapping Manager 面板，必須設定要使用的 Vendor、Vendor Data type 以確保下單跟報價商品代碼一致。您也可以透過以下路徑開啟此面板 Tools -> Symbol Mapping Manager。
舉個例子，假設我們要在 IB 上交易 ESU6@Globex 這檔期貨，所以就必須從 IQFeed 上去找到這檔期貨的市場資料，而 IQFeed 又對這檔商品有不一樣的代碼，所以必須開啟他們自家的 IQMarketDepth 或者到官網上查詢對應的商品代碼。
