Is this the best alternative to C++ API for Linux using Interactive Brokers? Quickest route to HFT platform? Java is an option as well.

Finally, this is potentially a way to go to use Interactive Brokers with C++ within Linux. This a modified (and hopefully improved) API to Interactive Brokers C++ POSIX API which apparently was a mess. This could also be a decent option to go with to build high scalable multi threaded execution platform using Interactive Broker. Just a thought for now as opposed to being stuck in Windows.

Do note Java is another option as I have found a way to call R scripts from within Java. Just Google RCaller.

This could lead into a potential way execute trades from R through C++ or Java within Linux using Interactive Brokers. This is the exact combo I Have been looking for. Yippee for that!

NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!

I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out.
