IBRApp, a trading simulator

    Hey everyone...I wrote a trading simulator for use with IB's data feed awhile back and I think it's ready enough for others to use. My goals in writing it were realistic fills, a compact UI, logging, and one-click order-entry. I'd love to have some people try it out and let me know what you think!

  2. I hope it works with Windows 98 SE, and it is not a hog on the processor. I will check it out soon.

    Thanks for your contribution.

    Congratulations on a very kewl and useful program.

    I have some ideas for modifications just for me.

  4. It quits before it ever started. Here are the details of the problems the program encountered at the very launch:

    java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: javax.swing.AbstractButton: method setAction(Ljavax/swing/Action;)V not found

    at ibrapp.IBRApp.init(IBRApp.java:500)

    at ibrapp.IBRApp.<init>(IBRApp.java:125)

    at ibrapp.IBRApp.main(IBRApp.java:147)

    Wally, which version of Java do you have installed?
  6. Congrats on your software!!!

    I never knew you're a coder...

    Nice to see fellow analytic coding traders...
  7. I like the simple and clear IB style layout :)
  8. 1.4.0_02

    All other Java programs I use work fine.

    Thanks for your interest.

    IBRApp is very useful. The layout works very well. Thanks for making it available.

    What is the symbol code for a stock or ETF such as QQQ?

    How well does IBRApp simulate market order fills? Does it simulate a realistic execution delay?

    Thank you!

    Thanks! QQQ is "STK:QQQ"

    Market orders for futures are done just like in IB, with a limit order 4 ticks away from bid or ask. Should fill very similarly to IB...though with stocks we will have to see if the same behaivior is practical. Let me know what you think!

    (Inbox is now empty again, btw) :)
