Interactive Brokers API native Python 3 is not stable yet

Running Interactive Brokers with native Python support seems to be a pain in the ass. As I see it, I will continue with the methodologies I show in my Interactive Brokers API course. It seems that using Python 3 on Mac is a real pain so I am not bothered to fully implement or install until there is an official document to show to to implement. It seems that this current API version is not fully stable but only experimental.

What I will do

As for me, I will continue with the same path in using Redis NOSQL for the central data hub. We can connect Redis with either C++ or Java to interface with Interactive Brokers Treader Workstation (TWS). I shall stick with this for many reasons as we currently sit.

I have included some useful URL tips if you are interested. Pleaseunderstand I get frustrated with all these unofficial ways to implement.  I will just stick with the current non Python techniques I have.

Interactive Brokers makes new API available for Python programmers

Interactive Brokers makes new API available for Python programmers

I am sure this will get hammered out over the next few months. Note that this API client release (with the Python client) is not stable. As a result, I will not even enter the fray of playing around with this until there is a stable release you can download.

Native Windows and Linux code, in C#, Swift and Oxygen. Does this sound really buggy ?

SO why waste your time hand coding your strategy or model for your trading platform’s native programming language?

A word from our sponsorSee a link below the a huge discovery that could shave years off your trading strategy research or platform development. My QuantLabs.net Premium Membership funds me to discover these gems so you reap the benefits!!

Once again, I am learning how people are hand coding their strategies in their platforms native language like C++, Java or C#. Why would you do that? That is why I am trying to use ways to bridge code from either proven prototyping products or statistical tools. If you want to waste your time hand coding an unproven strategy, go for it. I won’t stop you but it could lead you down the wrong path. In some cases years, or other cases dozens of programmers who get fired due to some guys vision of his potentially unprofitable strategy. Believe me, I have seen it. It isn’t pretty especially when it involves a spouse!  Anyhoo…. I have got two options at my disposal to alleviate this dilemma with my new HFT platform. You have two choices to follow on this:

1. Search and search and search my blog or anywhere else online. Good luck! Or follow me via my email list or Linked In to get an idea.
2. OR...join my QuantLabs.net Premium membership now to save the time and maybe even your relationship.
Sacrifices may need to be made if you believe in what you believe.
If you need to know on how I am getting around this, I would watch this video as it could be the bedrock of my new system.
The choice is yours.
