For number of years I was financing development of IB based trading platform. Various programmers contributed from all over the world... and it worked fine.... BUT... If you ask me if I would do that again, the answer is NO for various reasons but main one being... limited user/tester base and expensive development... Now, I would go with open source platform and pay only one guy to manage/promote and work full time on it. Obvious problem with that is to start from scratch! It hurts! I decided to take that pain and draft bare bones platform and open it in couple of weeks. The platform will be: 1. Java based 2. Console only 3. Simple and minimalistic and FAST 4. Oriented toward 100% automatic traders 5. IB to start with... But having on mind multi-broker support 6. no backtesting! Only live testing Is there someone in the same/similar boat willing to collaborate? Or make a case against such project? .... Anyone?
