Data plugins updated

All AmiBroker data plugins have been updated for AmiBroker 5.30 official release to support new API 2.10.
New versions are already included in the setup program of AmiBroker 5.30 official
http://www.amibroker.com/bin/AmiBroker530.exe.

IQFeed plugin has been compiled and tested with new IQFeed API 4.7.0.9.

New AmiBroker Development Kit 2.10 released

A new version of AmiBroker Development Kit (ADK 2.10) has been released

http://www.amibroker.com/bin/ADK.exe (550KB self-extracting exe)
http://www.amibroker.com/bin/ADK.zip (524KB plain zip file)

A new API contains updated documentation, source code samples and header definitions to support newly introduced features of AmiBroker 5.27 such as 64-bit date/time resolution, floating point volume/openint fields, new auxilliary data fields and extended symbol information fields.

VERSION 2.10 introduces one change in PluginNotification structure affecting data plugins only:

  • struct PluginNotification has new field StockInfo * pCurrentSINew and old field pCurrentSI type has changed to StockInfoFormat4 *.

This change is done for backward compatibility with plugins written with API version 1.x. All data plugin developers who used PluginNotification structure with API version 2.0 MUST recompile their plugins with API 2.10 to make sure their plugins works properly with AmiBroker 5.30.

The documentation and samples covers writing indicator (AFL function) plugins, data plugins and optimizer plugins.

The package is provided for native code developers (mainly C/C++) wanting to write their own plugin DLLs.

ADK 2.10 is free to use in both commercial and individual software.

A new Interactive Brokers TWS data plugin version 2.0.2 is released now.
It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED upgrade for Vista and Windows 7 users.

VERSION 2.0.2 CHANGES (as compared to 1.8.2)

  1. supports 64 bit date/time and float volume/openint (AmiBroker 4.27 and above)
  2. on Vista and Windows 7 previous versions of IB plugin crashed when requesting invalid symbol because AfxIsValidAddress function is broken on Vista/Win7. Fixed by rewriting code not to use AfxIsValidAddress anymore.

(to be copied to Plugins subfolder, replacing old version)

Interactive Brokers TWS plugin version 1.8.2

A new Interactive Brokers TWS data plugin version 1.8.2 is released now.
It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED upgrade for anyone using any earlier version.

VERSION 1.8.2 CHANGES (as compared to 1.8.1)

  1. the plugin now accepts single-letter security type codes in addition to 3 letter codes. So now security type can be:
    • S or STK for stocks
    • F or FUT for futures
    • O or OPT for options
    • P or FOP for futures options
    • C or CASH for currencies (Forex)
    • I or IND for indices

    This is provided to shorten symbols for instruments quoted in non-US currencies so they fit within maximum 25 character length. For example “FSMI DEC 08-SOFFEX-F-CHF” (Swiss index futures quoted in CHF)

VERSION 1.8.1 CHANGES (as compared to 1.8.0)

  1. due to possible ambiguity of SMART routing when same symbol is traded with multiple currencies, IB plugin now allows to specify CURRENCY in a symbol. The symbol format is now: SYMBOL-EXCHANGE-TYPE-CURRENCY.
  2. all symbols that do not have explicit currency specification use USD now (except forex).
    The default currency is USD and it is used when nothing is specified as 4th part of symbol. So for example MSFT gets internally resolved to MSFT-SMART-STK-USD

VERSION 1.8.0 CHANGES (as compared to 1.7.1)
This version fixes “Duplicate ticker ID for API historical Data query” error that occurred sometimes with newest TWS version.

It is available for download from:
http://www.amibroker.com/bin/ib182/IB.dll

(to be copied to Plugins subfolder, replacing old version)
