Hi all,

What's the best way to set up a timer in IBrokers, and take a snapshot
of market data at fixed interval, and then place some orders, and run
other tasks?

Also,  reqMktData(tws, twsEquity("QQQQ")) returns data continuously,

is there a way for it to only return one snapshot of data at one time,

just need to sample at fixed interval using a timer...

Thank you very much!


And how to submit order such as "market open", "market close", and
"good-until-after-some-time" in IBrokers?

Thanks a lot!
