I can confirm the current Tradelink open source trading platform does connect to the Interactive Brokers Trader Workstation
It was reported by someone via my Youtube channel, there was:
Well, I wasn’t just talking about FIX, apparently there are defects with the standard IB API, itself.
From a response in the thread to tradelink:
“With all due respect but as usual you spin your story in a very good light. But one thing I like to set straight before responding to your replies. I laud your effort and the open source and community approach. I do not think I ever criticized the product overall and I did contribute ideas some time ago. My issue lies with over-promising in the VERY SAME WAY than you just did, someone reading your posts gets the impression it all works fine, no errors, no bugs, please check your own forums yourself, your claim that the IB API is stable is anything but true. There are constant issues with it as documented in the message trail. Those working on the adapter cannot be fully faulted for that because IB does not have the best track record when it comes to pumping out clean and bug free new API versions. ……………….”
Hopefully once you’ve integrated the strategy into the program, you won’t have to deal with basic broker connectivity issues.
