A new IBController (auto-trading interface) version 1.2.1 BETA has been released. It is available for download from:
VERSION 1.2.1 CHANGES (as compared to version 1.2.0)
The IBc now accepts new symbology convention with 4th part defining currency: SYMBOL-EXCHANGE-TYPE-CURRENCY. When currency is not specified USD is used as default. For more info see http://www.amibroker.com/ib.html
The IBc also accepts single letter type codes
VERSION 1.2.0 CHANGES (as compared to version 1.1.1)
- IBc now allows to define which error codes should be ignored using File->Error code ignore list
- upgraded to use latest TWS API 9.41 (tested with latest TWS 885.7, requires at least 879)
- following TWS API changes ignoreRth and rthOnly flags are removed and replaced with single flag: outsideRTH
OutsideRTH Flag Replaces “Ignore Regular Trading Hours” and “Regular Trading Hours Only” Flags
Supported in: All API Platforms
A new, single order atttibute, bool OutsideRTH(), replaces two flags: ignoreRTH and rthOnly in the Order class/struct. If set to true, this new extended order attribute allows orders to trigger or fill outside of regular trading hours.
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.
