Failed attempts of running IQFeed with Wine on Mac OSX

Failed attempts of running IQFeed with Wine on Mac OSX

I tried running this but it failed. Here were my installation notes if you want to try. If you get it running, let me know.

Use Brew in terminal:

brew install wine

http://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/

 

Note to be patient while Brew takes care of all local builds for you. Also ensure you have all the developer tools as indicated in the link as well! Let me repeat this: BE PATIENT VERY PATIENT!

 

Note how to run Window EXEs

 

Download IQFeed client:

http://www.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?displayaction=support&section=download

 

For the IQFeed API you will only be able to use Java for support on Mac.

 

You should be able to run download: wine iqfeed_client_5_1_3_1.exe

This seems into install into a virtual directory of: c:\program files\DTN\IQFeed

 

Note in above link to run Windows program via WINE

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/

 

cd to /Users/quantlabsnet/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/DTN/IQFeed

 

bryans-MacBook-Pro:IQFeed quantlabsnet$ wine iqlink.exe

err:module:import_dll Library mfc100.dll (which is needed by L”C:\\Program Files\\DTN\\IQFeed\\iqlink.exe”) not found

err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L”C:\\Program Files\\DTN\\IQFeed\\iqlink.exe” failed, status c0000135

 

I gave up on the above steps so I followed the steps in this Youtube video

 

 

Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkS8i_blVCA

Download from: http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/

 

When downloading this Wine, see below for which version is best at the time of writing.

 

Note I removed the previous Wine version as instructed in the first link

Follow the EXACT TIPS in the Youtube video for it to work on your IQFeed install EXE

 

When running unkown Mac apps, you may get an OSX warning with:

https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/203727998-TechSmith-Relay-Can-t-be-opened-because-the-identity-of-the-developer-cannot-be-confirmed-

 

 

When tyring to install IQFeed download client, it may get stuck at ‘Execute vcredist_X86_20112u…’ but let it proceed as it should complete execution of install

 

After install, you will have your User-> Wine Files->drive_c->Programs->DTN->iqconnect.exe

These can take Wine a long to execute as is.

You can manually run the EXE from the Wine Bottle Icon at the top to navigate your ../Programs/DTN directory

 

Note that Wind 1.6 did not seem to work but I am on OS X El Capitan so I resorted to Wine 1.8

 

None of the installed IQFeed apps were able to run. I managed to run the out of box Explorer but not the Windows Media app.

In conclusion: This is to flakey to run dependable Windows programs

Failed hedge fund manager Tim Sykes talked about in Reuters about reinventing himself

He has done decently despite episodes of throwing 10K watches at walls. Well he can kind of afford it.
This came in from someone in NYC:
http://www.reuters.com/article/2007/11/01/oukin-uk-hedgefunds-sykes-idUKN3131839020071101
He makes his money from selling trading tutorials and courses.  Back in the day when he made money, things were far different.  It hasn’t worked out for him, like it hasn’t worked out for most, in the past few years.  Anyone who’s making tons of tutorials is obviously not making money because they’d be focusing on making money instead of giving out tutorials.  There was a huge, long article on him that talks about this in much more detail but I’m about to go to sleep, so I’ll find it later.

Your other article that says no one plays in equities isn’t true.  Most HFT is still going on in equities, in fact, moreso than other arenas.  The reason is because you have so many different exchanges and also order types which are present in futures markets for instance.  If you trade WTI crude, you’re trading it through the CME.  There’s a couple other exchanges like SAFEX in Africa and such but nobody’s trading that stuff.  If you try to find out about market microstructure on Globex, for instance, they are extremely vague and secretive about how it all works, and part, if not all, is because they are trying to keep out market manipulators.

Also:

One great way to sort of level the playing field now would be to randomize the queue when it’s queried by the order managing servers.  So say 100 orders come in and the first 20 are HFT orders scalping, you shuffle the 100 orders so that they’re randomly distributed in the queue.  It’s not that I have a problem with HFT, they’re basically doing the same things the guys in the pits did years ago but electronically.  The problem I have is that it’s made it where only a select few can play in that arena with FIX engines, custom operating systems, FPGA chips, etc.  You’re talking 100 grand just to get STARTED, meaning turning it on and then debugging, etc.  You need a team of people to do it

Hmm sounds reasonable to me.
