Discussion in ' Automated Trading ' started by caementarius , Jun 15, Log in or Sign up. Hello, I have looked over several open source projects for automated trading with Interactive Brokers but I could use some help finding something. I don't need all the bells and whistles the couple of examples I have found have.
I am looking for something as basic as possible to handle simple order management and logging. Or perhaps you have a simple old codebase that still works with current IB API that is no longer in use that you'd part with for a modest price. I would also consider an elance project. I would like it to have code demonstrating the submission and tracking of order states submitted, acknowledged, cancel submitted, canceled, partial fills, etc and tracking of realtime L1 prices.
I know from experience that this is a non-trivial part of programming an ATS and I'd like to speed up my development with a solid framework. No sophisticated analytics are necessary - as I'm acquiring data and doing analytics with other software for theos that will determine order prices.
Have any ideas or advice? Doesn't Non-Trivial basically mean it is hard?! So, what is wrong with the IB C Api? It is relatively new, meaning, it leverages on the mistakes of previous implementations in Com or Java. What are you missing there? You will need to do a lot of fine tuning and the API settings need to match with your specific needs. There are couple very important points regarding IB's APIs that you should know of, regardless of whether you hire someone to write a wrapper or whether you do it yourself.
How do I start using that monarch system? I downloaded it but how do I open it up and start using the thing!? You must log in or sign up to reply here. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account?
