Youtube videos on 3 easy steps of components to your HFT platform in C++,Ubuntu Linux,Interactive Brokers, R, and Redis NOSQL

1. Interactive Brokers TWS demo with a C++ API

3. Most powerful of all with a demo of R, RCpp, RInside a C++ program which includes plots and parallelization capabilities.

Follow the links at the lower under the Update dated today Oct 25. You should work with the latest IB-TWS files in order to work properly.  A symptom of this is getting stuck while trying to initialize at the splash screen of TWS on Linux.

Important NOTE: Run TWS as root under Linux
