JonnyT, hope you don't mind if I hijack your thread! Fascinated to hear that you have got an automated system selling on IB. I want to do exactly the same - but it will be a much simpler system as I am more of an investor than a trader and my buy and sell rules are riduculously simple. What language do you recommend I use - I know C and that is about it. Would you be able to show us a snippet of your code? Is the IB help on this subject useful and finally how much would you charge per hour to implement my system for me?

Many thanks,

John.

Hi John,

If you know C then Java's easy.

IB support both C/C++ and Java and even provide demo apps.

Have a look in the c:\jts directory installed when you implement Trader Workstation with the API download http://www.interactivebrokers.ch/download/tws40_install.exe

Additionally IBs forums have a great thread under TWS API http://www.interactivebrokers.com/cgi-bin/discus/discus.pl . There is also a class definition page somewhere http://www.interactivebrokers.com/html/tws/api/releaseNotes/index.html

You could also have a look at TSim+ (www.tradingsimulation.com) which does the automation for you. Bracket Trader can do auto trading as well. Obviously neither will necessarily be as good as a bespoke system, but if your requirements are simple they may suffice. Works for me anyway :)
