It's offically dead:
That link won't open for me. Somebody in Europe picked up the sales and support on Dynaorder at one point, not sure if that will continue.
NinjaTrader will be releasing Version 5 shortly which includes it's next generation Automated Trading Interface supporting DLL. COM and File based bi-directional communication.
If the address http://126.96.36.199:8080/ is not working for you, try this one:
I just wanted to add that nobody "picked up" sales and support. We had several European resellers in the past, and this is what you probably were referring to.
Right now we have a couple of the offers regarding our software and MAYBE we'll cut some kind of deal with one of the companies who want to continue our software projects.
Meantime we're selling out our Web domain names at the eBay.com, so if anybody is interesting in the obtaining of one of them (or all of them), you're welcome to bid!
Any questions should be send to Mr. Mik Weiss (email@example.com).
Please can you advice what happens to Dynaorder if Interactive Broker makes changes to it API, will it continue to work ?
This depends on the nature of such a change.
In most cases, IB makes new API versions down-compatible with previous ones.
But if something principal will be changed, then DO won't work with such changes of API.
It will be great for the existing customers if some software company will decide to obtain the source code and a user database from us - in that case, they will be able to modify the program in the API change situation. Bearing that in mind, I do not ask really big price for the source code. There are couple of conversations taking place now, but it's really too early to promise something - and there were several requests like "I'm a good programmer, but I can give you only $300(500, whatever...) for the source code and I promise I will take all of your customers" - this is of course, not acceptable (I'd prefer to make it open source in that case, but it contains several pieces of 3rd party info that can't be publicly disclosured, so this does not gonna happen).
Another possible soultion would be a sell of the source code to some self-organized body of traders/customers which would be able to hire contractor programmers to modify a code in a case of need (just an idea, but it should originate from the other part of the table, not from me).
Some off-topic (after reading other Refco-related posts at ET): I was at one of the Refco Toronto divisions today (...yesterday, sorry) and did not notice anything unusual - people taking orders, speaking with clients, computers blinking, the floor is clean and shiny...
I have sent you a PM please have a look at it.
The links are working for me, the corporate firewall was blocking or something, now is fine.
DB is FXCM's API backward compatible? I don't want to be high and dry.
Are there any other .DLLs that I can integrate into my project besides Dynaorder and Hypertrader?
Backward? Do you refer to the previous versions of FXCM server software?
If this is what you're asking about then the answer is - yes and no. The current implementation of our interface is compatible with the most current FXCM data protocol and the previous one - but not with the earlier versions.
