It pays to develop HFT: Try 1.2 million!

I did my occasional looking up high paying Quant and high-frequency trading development jobs. The market in London England has radically changed to make it easier for people to get these type of jobs that pays  in the  neighborhood of £150,000.

Good news and bad news.


Bad news:


Working with the Interactive Brokers API especially Java, is not very productive. For last week I was going around in circles trying to accomplish what I would think are simple tasks. As a result, I have decided to dump it and go with the good news option.


Good news but still bad:


I got my TWSLink2 working with Visual C++. As you can tell, I am not a happy camper going back to Windows technology but sometimes your trading broker dictates these options. Being in Canada, IB was really my only option so as a result I was forced to use this only option that would work easily. As a result, I present:

Yes that’s correct, it works and this is the easiest way to go about managing your Interactive Brokers API calls. In fact I make it even easier with C-sharp wish I will show in coming days. As usual, I have included the source code of this working demo via my Quant Elite membership.

The good news overall is that I can know hopefully finish off this Karen Super Trader strategy but using Windows and .Net. Kind of sad really, but I was forced to do it thanks to the lackluster Interactive Brokers API.


Thanks for reading,
