NT + IB for automated trading

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by naifwonder, Jun 12, 2008.

  1. I've finally managed to get my system almost to the point where I can trade it automatically. There is still a few kinks to knock out, but it should be done within the next week or so. Until then, I would like to setup an account at a broker that supports auto trading through NinjaTrader (the system is developed in NT). I am considering Interactive Brokers as the broker, but I am also considering Mirus Futures.

    I would go for Mirus right off the bat since I can start off with lower commissions, but IB's advisor account setup is very useful for what I am doing. I have heard great things about Mirus + NT, but very little regarding IB + NT. If anyone has any experience using IB with NT, please feel free to post about it here.

    Also, any information regarding the complexity/time involved in setting up an IB advisor account setup would also be greatly appreciated.
