Trading Blox real time on FXCM and IB

Post by Tim Arnold » Thu Jan 21, 2016 2:47 pm

I am working on some real time integration options between Trading Blox and the forex broker FXCM. This would make available dynamic real time intraday data in Trading Blox for live charting, and offer the possibility of automated execution of orders.

If there are any Forex traders, or FXCM customers, or other folks that are interested in being part of this beta process please let me know.

The new beta version is setup to interface with FXCM.

Use a new separate install folder of 4.4.7 and upgrade to the beta. Select the FXCM Suite and run a test.

Current beta supports Forex on Interactive Brokers if anyone is interested in testing that.

Broker Direct mode runs automatically every bar, updates data, synchronizes positions between system and broker, and enters new orders.

Hi Tim,

We would be interested to run TB connected with IB on end of day systems for futures/intra day stop placement for filled orders/checking positions etc
