Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Very interesting. Interface through API, you mean you are using a custom application? Did you create it? But also wouldn't that mean that you have to use IB data which is not optimal?

I created my own bot that generates orders, it injects them into NinjaTrader (ATI + Direct DB), which
was a very long painful process (many bugs i had to work around... NT support clueless to fix the
memory leaks and the crashes), but this allows me to talk to any broker supported by my multi-broker
license. Haven't seen a crash any more in the last 5 months, since i was able to work around the
areas of concern...

The bot takes it's data independent from the data-feed of Ninjatrader, the data arrives at NT and the
data arrives at the BOT. I don't see this would be different if the BOT keeps receiving data from IQfeed
and injects an order into IB.
