Latest Interactive Brokers TWS Cpp for POSIX updates

Latest from one of the authors below

I found this project TwsApiCpp which claims that you need to get into low-level programming like sockets to use the API directly. While I haven’t tried the API without the library, I can confirm that it is straightforward to program the IB API through this project.
It is available on GitHub: https://github.com/JanBoonen/TwsApiCpp
You should go through the four example programs. One of them (I forget which) subscribes to market data which I think is exactly what you are looking for.
It includes a CMake build which I added to his project. It works, but I’ve also been working a “proper” and better CMake build which is not yet complete on my own fork:  https://github.com/JamesHirschorn/TwsApiCpp
Notes: I could not get any of the above working
Also, I tried (once again) running the following but feel Mac OS might not be the best environment to do any of this. More to come I am sure

For https://github.com/rudimeier/twsapi For Mac OS

When building from git checkout you need both autotools and libtool. Also, don’t forget to type autoreconf -vfi first.

 

How to install and use autotools on Mac OS X

 

brew install autoconf

 

brew install automake https://github.com/Homebrew/legacy-homebrew/issues/16974brew install libtool

 

All failed above for Mac OS

 

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!

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
