Forum help Interactive Brokers API with TWSLink2

I am still having ‘dumb’ problems even with TWSLInk2. Frustrating indeed! So I started looking for any forums for help:

Here are a few I am going dig around in for the IB API:

LIVE Q&A on Interactive Brokers TWS TWSLink2 IQFeed tools

LIVE Q&A on Interactive Brokers TWS TWSLink2 and IQFeed tools  

I will hosting a LIVE online Meetup to cover:

1. The external tools I use for my IQFeed account. This can be used for backtesting and market screening purposes. I cannot showcase any API code whatsoever so don’t expect it. 

2. I can also demo the TWSLink2 with live connection into Interactive Brokers TWS DEMO sessionLot’s to cover for sure but this helps a Segway into my live Q&A for an upcoming Karen Super Strategy session in coming weeks.

Technologies covered include Windows and Excel, 

 Keep your eyes peeled for that.

 

Note: I will not be posting any video playback session of this. It will be available for my Quant Elite members

 

I have made two new video playlists for:

IQFeed:

Hit wall with Java for Interactive Brokers TWS, Hello TWSLink2 on Windows AGAIN?

Hit wall with Java for Interactive Brokers TWS, Hello TWSLink2 on Windows AGAIN?

We are back to the wonky crap Java has given, you upgrade Eclipse/Netbeans and the JVM to current version with IB Java Test Client. Now we get these stupid messages in the IDEs of Netbeans and Eclipse:

https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=169387

….I found the solution: Actually my folder already contained a pom.xml file. Due to that it was not taking the new projects. I found this solution from this link.

blah blab…You have not even seen the recorded nightmare Java programs to manage. It looks like I am now revisiting my Visual Studio settings as set in my courses for Windows. It works and much easier to manage then Java. This is using the TWSLink2 wrapper which makes life much easier.

I am now looking to go back down that path. As IB development is very strange and doesn’t work as it expected. Ithink TWSLink2 will make my life easier after hitting frustration since Thursday. The big takeaway is that I cannot setll the order I buy from within my Java to TWS.  I am also using the same order id as well.  It was leading up to a point I was not being a fan once I found this out.

I need to use the easiest path for the newbies out there in my community as frustrating as this is!

Interactive Brokers Java API or TWSLINK2?

Interactive Brokers Java API or TWSLINK2?

Please answer y survey here explained below

https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/W6ZJ6NS

TWLINK2: Pro is already works so immediate results but still on Windows

UPDATE: Another pro is maintenance API of IB is by vendor of twslink instead. Another option is to use a Python but I think this offers no real advnatage over the Java API from IB.

IB Java API: Pro is non Windows but still slower development
