Good open source C++ real time trading system...

  1. Hi all,

    I have been searching this for a while...

    What is the best open source C++ real time trading system (working
    with IB) out there, covering from data collection to order execution?

    Hopefully on Windows XP and Visual C++?

    I am hoping to download tick data of market depth of 500+ stocks in real time from Interactive Brokers. Is it possible?


    I saw many Java trading systems, but not C++, ... any thoughts?

    Thanks a lot!
  2. Here you go:
    You'll have to use the Google language translator to read the website that is in German.
    Also, PM a forum user named TrailingStop3.
    He is the author of this platform.
  3. Justice working it out.
  4. Thanks a lot! It doesn't seem to have the source code, or am I missing something?
  5. And everything is in Germany

    I just check the current API UG:
    You should be able to do what you want by extending the C++ API's reqMktDepth, reqMktData, etc. You have some programming to do but I think it's doable.

    1) use the Google page translator - it works well to convert to English

    2) please PM the author about a deal to secure the source code

    Please read the reply posts carefully before're acting like a "loose cannon" right now.
  9. No no I used Google translator.
    What I meant was if the source code GUI was in Germany, then I have no way to change one by one...

    If you look at the screen shots, they are in Germany... that's what I meant.

    Of course I respected your suggestions and did the translation...thanks!
  10. I am really looking for open source, so I can modify...
