Step 1 for building this HFT platform works! Youtube video on C++ integrated with Interactive Brokers TWS on Ubuntu Linux

This can be a bitch to set up but follow the README file a:

https://github.com/kafka399/twsapi

Also, I got some instruction on how to build unsuccessfully with Trading Shim:

Follow the links at the lower under the Update dated today Oct 25. You should work with the latest IB-TWS files in order to work properly.  A symptom of this is getting stuck while trying to initialize at the splash screen of TWS on Linux.

Important NOTE: Run TWS as root under Linux

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. 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. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
