Quant developmenet: R to Interactive Brokers IB API

Quant developmenet: R to Interactive Brokers IB API

Does anybody know whether or not an R to Interactive broker interface is available somewhere. Apparently a so called ibrokers package can be found on CRAN but it doesn’t seem to include the order placement piece. Any insight on this topic would be much appreciated

I am not an expert on this subject, but yes Jeff Ryan has written ibrokers which certainly includes the order placement.

Why do you need a trading API for matlab?

 

I think because Matlab is very powerful and it provides a lot of mathematic tools…

Matlab typically has faster development turnarounds, and in some cases we have noticed the matrix math is so heavily optimized that it runs faster than C/C++. Also the GPU support for Matlab makes GPU development more rapid as well. Then like Ivan said there are many mathematical tools available: robust control, metaheuristics, custom plotting, etc…

, I am sure you can use matlab’s API to implement it’s functions in your software. That should be more comfortable for trading I think.

It depends from speed required and some other stuff! For example i prefer to’ develop something in matlab and then exporting it as a library (jar o what else)
