IQFeed API complete walkthough with Java on Mac OSX

The next three video I am releasing between today and Monday are very pivotal so watch them if you can.

 

Here is the first one I just posted:

IQFeed API complete walkthough with Java on Mac OS

Meet my new financial data crack provider IQFeed. Hooray today I remove the shackles of Windows the Evil

Run the ‘IQConnect’ by using ‘open -a IQFeed’ in to Lunach IQFeed

Redis Neural Net in alpha project

Watch the video and get further details here

 

Don’t forget about tomorrow morning (Sat) at 10 AM EDT but see beow about further import developments on this course material.

 

In 1 day, I will be doing my last LIVE workshop for this Interactive Brokers API I have been pushing over the last few weeks. This will take place on this SAT at 10 AM EDT which was scheduled for all Americans who could not attend last Saturday due to their Thanksgiving holidays. As said, this will be my last live event teaching this topic. Not only that, I will be removing all content related around this course come December 15. I’m noticing very few people are using it but I’m offering this limited window of opportunity to do just that. Thus, this course material will be unbundled from my Quant Elite membership at that point of December 15. It will be relaunched early next year as a standalone expensive product.

Realize you need to be a Quant Elite member to to attend. So join here now as this is on for a limited time.

 

Thanks Bryan

Latest C++ updates for Mac OSX for HFT backend

Latest C++ updates for Mac OSX for HFT backend

I have built the following libraries for my local environment:

Redis C++ client library r3c

Chart Director

It looks like I am ready to start development for my Forex strategies with updates to my Futures/Options as well. I can confirm I should be able to push data from TradingEconomics.com and eventual Interactive Brokers into a Redis cluster eventually. I can push this data using Python. Note I plan to deploy all this into an end target of FreeBSD not Linux. This is how i always envisioned it.

Lastly, I would like to stress this is how my backend will look like. From there, I have decided to focus later on the front for Apple IOS front end development (for Ipad Pro, Iphone, Watch, etc) apps which are modern.

Note: I could not complete the build of Fastflow on Mac so I now I need to focus back on Ubuntu Linux. I was able to build Fastflow on my Ubuntu Linux environment no problems. It just seems mac development can test you so why bother with it.  Software development sucks sometimes as not the way I intend it.

Failed attempts of running IQFeed with Wine on Mac OSX

Failed attempts of running IQFeed with Wine on Mac OSX

I tried running this but it failed. Here were my installation notes if you want to try. If you get it running, let me know.

Use Brew in terminal:

brew install wine

http://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/

 

Note to be patient while Brew takes care of all local builds for you. Also ensure you have all the developer tools as indicated in the link as well! Let me repeat this: BE PATIENT VERY PATIENT!

 

Note how to run Window EXEs

 

Download IQFeed client:

http://www.iqfeed.net/index.cfm?displayaction=support&section=download

 

For the IQFeed API you will only be able to use Java for support on Mac.

 

You should be able to run download: wine iqfeed_client_5_1_3_1.exe

This seems into install into a virtual directory of: c:\program files\DTN\IQFeed

 

Note in above link to run Windows program via WINE

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/

 

cd to /Users/quantlabsnet/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/DTN/IQFeed

 

bryans-MacBook-Pro:IQFeed quantlabsnet$ wine iqlink.exe

err:module:import_dll Library mfc100.dll (which is needed by L”C:\\Program Files\\DTN\\IQFeed\\iqlink.exe”) not found

err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L”C:\\Program Files\\DTN\\IQFeed\\iqlink.exe” failed, status c0000135

 

I gave up on the above steps so I followed the steps in this Youtube video

 

 

Watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkS8i_blVCA

Download from: http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/

 

When downloading this Wine, see below for which version is best at the time of writing.

 

Note I removed the previous Wine version as instructed in the first link

Follow the EXACT TIPS in the Youtube video for it to work on your IQFeed install EXE

 

When running unkown Mac apps, you may get an OSX warning with:

https://support.techsmith.com/hc/en-us/articles/203727998-TechSmith-Relay-Can-t-be-opened-because-the-identity-of-the-developer-cannot-be-confirmed-

 

 

When tyring to install IQFeed download client, it may get stuck at ‘Execute vcredist_X86_20112u…’ but let it proceed as it should complete execution of install

 

After install, you will have your User-> Wine Files->drive_c->Programs->DTN->iqconnect.exe

These can take Wine a long to execute as is.

You can manually run the EXE from the Wine Bottle Icon at the top to navigate your ../Programs/DTN directory

 

Note that Wind 1.6 did not seem to work but I am on OS X El Capitan so I resorted to Wine 1.8

 

None of the installed IQFeed apps were able to run. I managed to run the out of box Explorer but not the Windows Media app.

In conclusion: This is to flakey to run dependable Windows programs

Demo of Interactive Brokers TWS with Java API with Redis on OSX

Demo of Interactive Brokers TWS with Java API with Redis on Apple Mac OSX

A few weeks ago I did a presentation on the following topics:
1. Interactive Brokers TWS with Java API connection
2. Demo of Java Test Client downloading latest market data from multiple assets
3. All data pushed into Redis NOSQL

I have once again demonstrated this source code in a series of videos that you can find here

Apple IOS Swift could be the future in automated trading and even HFT

Could Apple new open source programming language Swift be the next big thing for automated trading? I hinted a few days ago regarding Apple technology including deployment onto iOS devices and OS X desktops while focusing on front end GUI systems with a C++ back end. The Powerful part is the ability to deploy onto mobile with a back end application sitting on the remote server. I’m not sure how serious to take this but I have some opinions I posted here

As I’ve mentioned in the article above you can get the source code from my Quant Elite membership.
