I'm not sure if i'm posting this in the right thread but I don't have access to the hiring thread since i'm not an elite member. I'm looking to get a trading robot made for a strategy that I already have. I originally wanted to use NinjaTrader but I was told it wasn't very reliable, especially for my strategy (I'm still open to using it if you prove me otherwise). Right now I do my analysis on all ETFs in excel. My analysis picks the top 4 prospects and then I buy those at the closing price on friday. I then want to use what I call a group stop. What I mean by this is that I want the program to be continually monitoring the live feeds. If all 4 positions collectively hit my stop I want all positions to be sold. My orders on friday will be MOC orders so I won't be able to set the stop that way. I will need it to work with interactive broker. Please message me for a more detailed description of what I need.

You should not search for an IB API coder, but a coder for Ninja or any another trading software (Ninja is reliable BTW).
The IB API is not made for this, this is a "low level" API, implementing any smart trading logic will take 50 X more time than with a good software made for this purpose.
