Being dedicated I think your product is really promising, I ve been looking through the tutorials and really like the random ds feature. I noticed you do not have kinetick in your ds list, do you plan it or is it customizable. I think I will give it a try on my VPS, I am curious to compare results with my existing NT strats. In order to better quantify your latency with the mkt, can you tell us where you server/servers are located, I also would like to ping from my Chicago location. Although your webiste is full of tutorials I look forward for a presentation on futures.io (formerly BMT).

They support IQFeed. Kinetick is a NinjaTrader brand, it will not work with anything but NinjaTrader. You can just use IQFeed instead.

I've been talking with the CEO of IQBroker, and we'll get them on for a few webinars early next year.

I'm glad you like it so far, IQBroker was designed to be the dream machine for designing, backtesting, optimizing and executing high frequency automated trading strategies. You mentioned Kinetick, we'll likely be adding them very soon, note that we already support IQFeed, so....

Not sure about the server question, there is no communication between IQBroker and its servers, we do not track our users trades and such. The server is only used for authentication.

We will present in futures.io (formerly BMT) soon, once IQBroker is closer to its official release. (Note that we release builds several times a month and a new major one is coming next week).

From what you said I assume in live trading mode, orders are executed from the machine where the software was installed to the broker, no transaction from your server, correct ?

Correct. IQBroker's only contact with our servers is for log-ins, log-outs and exception reporting. We have no access to your scripts, orders and trades. Orders are send directly to your brokerage provider.

If you have any questions about IQBroker's products or services, please send me a Private Message.

I spent the last few days getting to know IQBroker. So far, I am extremely impressed with the core engine. It is rough around the edges (and in beta) but the actual engine seems to be well thought out.

Personally, I am most interested in IQBroker from an algorithmic portfolio management system, and not a simple directional system in a single product. It has a lot of capabilities for multi-position strategies, even spread out over multiple brokers. This is very attractive to me and some of my bigger plans for the future.

I've exchanged a couple dozen emails with the CEO Yuval, and he has already released to me updated daily builds to address any concerns or feedback I provided. Right now, I have finished importing about 350 million ticks for the ES (almost 4 years worth) and 10 years of daily and minute data for the entire DOW 30, NASDAQ 100 and SP 500. It handled all of this with ease and great speed.

I am in "play" mode, just getting to know the platform. I see a lot of potential here...

Our syntax editor is developed by ActiPro which has the best commercial syntax editor component that we can buy. It's constantly being improved with new features. We will most likely add a visual developer in the future, but not in version 1.

Is there anything that you are missing from the editor ?

NinjaTrader also employs ActiPro as its editor/code generator, as evidenced by these dlls in its bin folder: ActiproSoftware.Shared.Net20.dll, ActiproSoftware.SyntaxEditor.Addons.DotNet.Net20.dll, ActiproSoftware.SyntaxEditor.Net20.dll, and ActiproSoftware.WinUICore.Net20.dll.

NT uses the WinForm version of the control while IQBroker was built in WPF and thus uses the WPF version of the control. They are both good. It's true that Visual Studio is slightly better but the integration between the syntax editor and the platform makes it still a lot more easier to do development this way then to compile assemblies in VS.

Just think of our API which can easily be accessed from the script manager on it's right hand side with some nice visual documentation. Not to mention the code highlighting, parameter completion, debug information on script crash, and many other integration features.

In any case the script manager accepts external DLL's which can be developed in Visual Studio if you want.

I'm all for more webinars, but I'm not sure how useful this is, since the pricing of IQBroker is geared to professional/hedge fund traders and will not be near trading platforms as NinjaTrader or MultiCharts (as I was told by IQBroker email support, which is great btw).
