http://www.amibroker.com/bin/aq2130.exe (94KB)

CHANGES (as compared to version 2.12)

  1. thousand separators (commas) are removed from value fields in “Key Statistics” page to prevent interpretting them as field delimiters

IBController (auto-trading interface) 1.3.8 released

A new IBController (auto-trading interface) version 1.3.8 BETA has been released. It is available for download from:

http://www.amibroker.com/at/

VERSION 1.3.8 CHANGES (as compared to version 1.3.7)

  1. removed the workaround introduced in 1.3.5 for symbol translation because it caused problems for symbols like 6EU0-GLOBEX-FUT where symbol is not equal to local symbol less expiration code (EUR vs 6E). Instead symbol translation now relies solely on method introduced in 1.3.6
  2. Portfolio and Account Info pages were empty when used with Individual account (non-FA) without SetInfoAccount() in 1.3.5 and 1.3.6. Fixed

VERSION 1.3.7 CHANGES (as compared to version 1.3.6)

  1. GetPositionList() returned empty symbol part for non-stocks. Fixed
  2. PlaceOrder failed on Financial advisor accounts when non-master Account was passed in a parameter without preceding SetAccount call. Fixed.

For important changes made in previous version (1.3.5) see:

NOTE: auto-trading interface is separate and independent from IB DATA PLUGIN and is not required if you are only interested in getting data from IB / TWS.

NOTE: This version has been tested with TWS 907.7. We can not guarantee proper operation with earlier / later versions because IB may introduce incompatible changes.

IBController (auto-trading interface) 1.3.6 released

A new IBController (auto-trading interface) version 1.3.6 BETA has been released. It is available for download from:

http://www.amibroker.com/at/

VERSION 1.3.6 CHANGES (as compared to version 1.3.5)

  1. IBController now uses more reliable way to translate from local symbol to TWS symbol/expiry pair based on information sent back by TWS. (It is not as simple as one may think because sometimes local symbol does not contain TWS symbol, so one can not derive TWS symbol from local symbol in general case, for example FESX SEP 10-DTB-FUT-EUR local symbol translates to ESTX50,20100917, therefore IBController needs to get info from TWS)

IBController (auto-trading interface) version 1.3.5 released

A new IBController (auto-trading interface) version 1.3.5 BETA has been released. It is available for download from:

http://www.amibroker.com/at/

This version brings very important changes / improvements with regards to Financial Advisor / Family & Friends accounts. Now IBController supports separation of “viewing” account that is used to display account information and portfolio pages and “order” account that is used by PlaceOrder/ModifyOrder calls. These two accounts can be now set independently by SetInfoAccount and SetAccount functions.

VERSION 1.3.5 CHANGES (as compared to version 1.3.2)

  1. New SetInfoAccount( account )
  2. To workaround recent change in TWS, for futures (FUT) ‘symbol’ field is set by IBController as localsymbol without expiration month/year. This is temporary workaround which may be broken by other TWS releases. Tested to work with TWS 907.7
  3. Pending Orders/Executions/Portfolio/Account info tabs now have additional command “Account” that specifies the account given item refers to
  4. PlaceOrder and ModifyOrder now accept optional Account parameter
  5. Now SetAccount() only sets account for NEXT order(s). It does NOT clear lists anymore and does NOT change ‘viewing’ account
  6. ClearList() method accepts -1 as listno – then it clears ALL lists

NOTE: auto-trading interface is separate and independent from IB DATA PLUGIN and is not required if you are only interested in getting data from IB / TWS.

NOTE: This version has been tested with TWS 907.7. We can not guarantee proper operation with earlier / later versions because IB may introduce incompatible changes.
