Hi,

It seems there are many Python trading platforms out there but many of them are for backtesting only.

Can anyone recommend one they have actually used for Live Trading?

Thanks.

I use https://alpaca.markets
They are for Stocks. But they have a REST API that allows you to write in Python. I don't think this is exactly what you meant, but thought I would share anyway.

Cheers!

I've built one that's coming close to being releasable though it's more "programmer-centric" in it's current state than "end-user-centric" like most traditional ($$$) retail platforms. It does have better replay functionality (IMHO) than what's currently offered by either TradeStation, MultiCharts or NinjaTrader (i.e. true tick-by-tick real-time replay, with variable speed control). It's very Futures-centric at the moment as that's what I mostly trade, but plan on ultimately supporting IB, Alpaca & CCXT (for Crypto) brokerage-wise. DTN/IQFeed or CSV are all I plan on supporting for data near-term. It also has built-in optimizer & backtest support.

It's 100% Python 3.8+ and surprisingly fast - at some point I plan on running & recording similar TradesStation, MultiCharts and " Fu510nTrader" charts on a single 1920x1200 screen for comparison-sake - stay tuned
