Coding a trading bot - which broker to use?

Hi everyone,
New to the community here.
I am looking to code a trading bot to trade stocks.
I'm very new to algorithmic trading, I have some coding experience from highschool and university (excel VBA) and I want to start trading as a way to grow my money. I also enjoy programming and my neighbor claims he makes good money trading forex using an algorithm, so I thought if he could do it, so can I.
I want to use interactive brokers because of their low commissions and python because of it's wide application (in other things), however I've read getting interactive broker to work with python is difficult. What are some of the other brokers that are comparable/better than IBKR for algotrading?
Is trying to use python the wrong approach or should I just be open to using other languages?
I want to trade stocks because of all the instruments out there, I know the most about stocks. I'll be coming back to this forum so I appreciate any and all help I can get!

Need someone that uses IBKR to hold my hand.

I'm apparently some kind of moron- I'm unable to figure out how to get set up with automated trading on interactive brokers.
Currently I'm paper trading forex on OandA using some simple curl requests on a headless server. I'd like to start trading futures, and ibkr was the top recommendation.
Goals: -When my own (already developed) system generates an entry or exit alert, execute a market order on a NASDAQ micro futures contact. -Do it on a headless Google cloud server
From chatting with some folks, I've heard I need to use IB Gateway, and there may be a need to initially use GUI for authentication. That's fine, as long as GUI elements aren't needed later when it's running.
I don't need any kind of data feed from IBKR, since I already have a system that generates alerts when I want it to. I just need the bare minimum to actually execute these market orders.
I've signed up for IBKR and gotten my account approved and all that. Then I thought I'd go over to the education library and work through the TWS materials (just to get acquainted) and then go through the TWS programming Python course. At this point, the website wants me to register or login. I click the button that says I already have an ibkr account, it asks me to login, I do, then it takes me to the account page. Where is the course!?😵
After going through that loop every which way, I've given up on that for now and I'm here asking you for help.
Anyone willing to give some guidance, either in this thread or through DM? I feel like what I want to do is extremely simple and I will be barely scratching the surface of what's available to me through IBKR. I just want to get started.
Advice, resources, guides, and insults are all welcome!
Thanks!

Interactive Brokers: Brexit account migration = insurance drops from 500k USD to 20k EUR

Is anyone else concerned about this? They are migrating from UK to Hungary, Ireland or Luxembourg: https://ibkr.info/node/3515
Main reason I used IB was safety/regulation. After this migration we lose FSCS & SIPC protection, compensation will be the same as e.g. DeGiro or Trading 212 (20k EUR), for me there is no point to stay on IB any longer as I much prefer Trading 212's modern platform. What are your thoughts?
In 2018 IBKR established Interactive Brokers Luxembourg SARL (“IBLUX”) which received regulatory authorization in November 2019. In addition, we are in the process of creating two additional brokers based in the European Union: Interactive Brokers Ireland Limited (“IBIE”) and Interactive Brokers Central Europe Befektetési ZRt (“IBCE”).
We expect the majority of the clients based in Western Europe will be migrated to IBIE, those in Central and Eastern Europe to IBCE and a select group of clients to IBLUX.
Currently, provided they meet eligibility requirements, IBUK clients may be protected in relation to investment services under the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“UK FSCS”) at an amount of up to £50,000. As IBUK clients are carried by our US broker, IBL, the securities segment of their account may be eligible for insurance by the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”) at an amount of up to USD 500,000.
Under the EU Brokers IBLUX, IBIE and IBCE eligible claimants may be entitled to claim compensation up to a maximum of EUR 20,000.
Later update - currently for IBUK, the protection amount depends on what you are trading with:
As a side note, in their article they state £50,000 FSCS protection, but that's just outdated. It's been increased to £85,000 since April 2019 - fscs.org.uk/media/press/2019/aphigher-protection-limits.

Help with buying in the UK?

Hi all
I wanted to invest in MindMed and Numi via Interactive Brokers/DIGERO but from what I can see, there is a minimum amount for buying on each platform?
IB says they want 2000 USD minimum and DIGERO's conversion seems off (almost double the share price) so I'm a bit stuck
Also, are these the only places I can buy at the moment? My plan is to buy about £500's worth of shares for each company (market order but unsure if i should do a different order since my plan is to buy and hold long term)
I've traded forex before and have investments in ETF"s but I've not really invested in stocks that much before so any help would be much appreciated.
Some backstory: my first psilocybin trip literally saved my life 2 and a half years ago. I've used it ever since and its helped me heal from decades of trauma. I also found out in my 20's I have ADHD so also have hopes for LSD mdsing. I truly believe in the power of psychedelics. Again, they actually saved my life. I want to be a part of this change in the world. We need it.
Thanks!

Has anyone here opened an SIPP account at Interactive Brokers?

Hey all,
I have a pension with Aviva through my employer but recently realized that the 0.5% fees they're charging are a bit high. For the size of my pension portfolio (~£300k) this comes to about £1500 per year. Moreover, I've recently started to take a bit of interest in managing my investments and I find myself limited by the funds they provide. They also take too long (~upto a week) to process requests for moving investments.
For these reasons, I've been looking at opening an SIPP. An SIPP would hopefully give me a bit more control and also cost less. I'm primarily interested invest in US Shares & ETFs. I compared some of the popular pension providers like HL, Interactive Investor, iWeb.
My observations about the fee structure:
So now, I'm looking for an SIPP which ideally has the following:
During my search, I stumbled upon a lesser known route using which you can get an SIPP account at Interactive Brokers - https://www.interactivebrokers.co.uk/en/index.php?f=38149. IB themselves are not SIPP administrators so you need to register with an SIPP administrator who has a master account at IB and then you can get an IB Cash sub-account under that administrator.
IB appears to be checking all my boxes, but I'm just not very sure about the SIPP Administrators that I might need to use. I found a few: https://www.atsipp.co.uk/, http://www.candpsipp.co.uk/, https://www.optionspensions.co.uk/personal-pensions. They all appear to be somewhat less popular names and small in size.
Has anyone here done this? Do you have any recommendations on which SIPP Administrator I should use? Any gotchas?
Or maybe there's another SIPP that provides the features I'm looking for?

What safe pennystocks brokers can you guys recommend? (Only the ones where you have actually withdrawn profits count)

Hi guys! :)
I believe this is a good question for anyone who's new, especially coming from Europe, as we can't use WeBull or Robinhood, which I believe work pretty safe under all the regulations and after I've seen so many of you guys using them (though that doesn't guarantee you were able to easily withdraw profits still).
I've been digging in some of the old posts but I am very anxious about starting an account with brokers such as:
A quick search gives me results such as:
and the list could go on and on when it comes to brokers like those. I know these sites, especially Forex Peace Army, and these are mostly real opinions and reviews from real people who were scammed.
Thing is, in the past I used to work with the Prosecutor's Office and investigators on cases of brokerage scams, and plenty of such companies (even some of these I named) were also involved at times. I am really anxious about it as I can see everywhere people writing about playing against the brokers, so your loss is their gain clearly and I know some of the victims myself, who were simply scammed and robbed off of their hard-earned money, even life savings at times.
I've been trading normal stocks through my brokerage account at my bank in Poland, but I have no idea how can I safely trade pennystocks like you guys and be sure that if I actually become successful I am not going to be denied by the brokerage company that is going to come up with hundreds of excuses, technical problems, delays, questions for documents and verification, not replying etc. in order not to let a withdrawal go through. I know this all too well.
Can you guys recommend any legitimate brokers that are regulated by SEC or other financial authorities in the US for a non-US citizen? I don't trust CySEC, ASIC etc. - these guys are paid to give out licenses to anyone who pays well, so that's not safe at all, especially CySEC. Look how proud they were of IronFX in the past.
I will really appreciate any answers I can get :)
Thanks!

APIs offered by brokers and data platforms

I’ve been looking for a broker that has an API for index futures and ideally also futures options. I’m looking to use the API to build a customized view of my risk based on balances, positions, and market conditions.
Searching the algotrading sub I found many API-related posts, but then when I actually read them and their comments, I found they’re often lacking in real substance. It turns out many brokers or data services that have APIs don’t actually support index futures and options via the API, and instead they focus on equities, forex, or cypto. So here’s the list of what I’ve found so far. This isn’t a review of these brokers or APIs and note that I have a specific application in mind (index futures and futures options). Perhaps you’re looking for an API for equities, or you just want data and not a broker, in which case there may be a few options. Also, I’m based in the US so I didn’t really look for brokers or platforms outside the US.
If you have experience with these APIs, please chime in with your thoughts. Also, I may have missed some brokers or platforms. If I did or if you see anything that needs correction please let me know.

Currency Futures (Canadian dollar D6) - How do I go about hedging by Exposure to USD

Hi there,
My base currency is Canadian and I hold some USD exposure right now due to investments. I am new to using Interactive Brokers and futures trading.
To my understanding it is possible to mantain a hedge using the cash-settled large and mini Currency Futures Contract and occasionally adjust depending on your USD exposure.
https://www.cmegroup.com/trading/fx/g10/canadian-dollar.html
Per https://www.retailinvestor.org/hedge.html#risk
"It is too expensive to hedge." The cost to buy a $100,000 futures contract good for a year, is about $5. Pittance. Yes you must provide collateral but that is not a cost. You will also find that buried somewhere in whatever method you chose, is a cost/benefit equal to the difference in interest rates between the countries. Since Canada and US rates are so close you can cancel out any cost by using limit orders that let normal market volatility make up the difference.
The fund managers who say hedging is expensive are referring to using options. This method IS expensive. Options are a one-sided bet on the direction of FX, expiring within a specific time span. They are not hedges.
The cash funding of open futures contracts come from the daily settlements. If your position gains $1,000 in value one day, there will be $1,000 put into your account. More importantly, if your position loses $1,000, it will be taken from your account. If there is not sufficient cash your broker will consider it borrowed and charge you interest. You must realize that because this is a hedge, you are not 'losing' that cash. For every dollar you might lose in the futures account, the offsetting investment in the foreign security will have gained the same amount. Agreed, you cannot liquidate that cash daily, but the value is there."

1) Anybody have any experience in this in how to consider which month of futures contract to purchase, (near month or 1 year from now if I want one year of) I believe futures contract automatically roll-forward to the next month.
The Price Curve seems to curve down, and is in some sort of backwardation? So farther away in time cost more due to priced in uncertainty - and also more thinly traded?
2) Collateral is required so I assume is some sort of Margin that is required to maintain the contract,
3) What are the calculations to determine how much to hedge out. Say I have $100k USD?
Is it just Looking at say $100k USD x the Future Price Rate (of CAD/USD) or the current Spot Forex Exchange Rate?
I.e. $100k USD / 0.74500s (Aug '20) = $134k CAD ~
So 1 $100k CAD Contract and 3-4 $10k CAD mini contracts?
4) Any resources to learn about this?

Thanks in advance

What's the most liquid way for a US person to trade Deutsche Lufthansa AG?

Edit: I've answered my own question! Trading the F shares on the foreign local market should have nearly the same liquidity as trading the foreign shares themselves. I imagine the operations vary by B/D, but sounds like DLAKF is the way to go. Using Interactive Brokers might work as well to trade the actual shares.

I noticed this while trading today and now I've gone down the rabbit hole. I'm (an American) trying to buy shares of Deutsche Lufthansa AG which trades on its home exchange in Frankfurt as LHA. It looks like there are a few ways to accomplish this:
  1. Buy the Sponsored ADR, this is ticker DLAKY
  2. Buy the ADS, this is ticker DLAKF
As far as liquidity goes: LHA > DLAKY > DLAKF
What is the more liquid route? Buying the ADR? Or buying the ADS but instructing my trader to work it on the local exchange (if this is the case, does it become as liquid as LHA?)?
Since currency conversion might contribute to my liquidity, can I get better liquidity by trading directly in Euros held in a forex account (and can therefore settle in Euros)? Furthermore, if I'm now using Euros can I trade LHA directly since the ADS would have only applied to USD?
TL;DR: what's the most liquid way for a US person to trade Deutsche Lufthansa AG? I do not want to trade OTC. I would like to trade on the local market (Frankfurt). DLAKF (the ADS) is how I would trade on the local market but it seems significantly less liquid than LHA. Is there a better way to trade LHA or should I simply buy DLAKY (the ADR)? If I buy DLAKY, is that OTC or on an exchange given that it's sponsored?

Saxo vs SCB

Hello I'm 21 going in army soon and plan to invest 500 every month into SWRD(90%) + EIMI(10%) which broker should I use?
The fees
SCB - (10 dollar min commission fee or 0.2%, 0.2% trading fee, and a 0.43% forex spread)
Saxo - (10 dollar min commission fee or 0.06%, 0.08% trading fee, custody fee of 0.12% and a forex spread of 0.75%)
Also what do you guys think of investing in IT etfs like QQQ or healthcare etfs with low expense ratio.
Do let me know if I'm missing out something or there's a better way of investing like investing every 2 months instead or robos.
Thank you for reading.
Edit - Thanks all for the feedback I really appreciate it. I have decided on Interactive brokers. I forgot to mention that after 2 years of NS I will be in uni for another 4 years and I probably won't be investing during this time. Assuming I liquidate my investment at 27 from SCB and transfer to IB, I calculated that I'm at a gain of 60 sgd by not going with IB which is really nothing and it seems kind of troublesome to do that so I'll just stick with IB. Thanks all

What broker do you use for share options?

Just trying to figure out who is best broker to use for share options. I’m not interested in buying options on Forex so HighLow isn’t exactly what I’m after. I use Suncorp Trading for the ASX (looking at changing to something with lower brokerage) and Stake to buy some US shares but it doesn’t seem like either allow options.
It looks like you can use ComSec and CMC for share options but the brokerage was around $33-$35. Is there anyone cheaper or better? Bonus points if you aren’t just limited to options on the ASX.
I saw a little about Tastyworks and InteractiveBrokers and they seem cheaper. Just curious what most people use before I sign up with one over the other?

[META] Recent scam/spam trends.. Or, a peak inside what it's like to moderate /r/forex

After a few...especially trying...interactions with unhappy ban recipients today, I thought it would be fun to share a little info on what moderators do to keep this place clean. :)
The forex industry is full of shady characters. Any industry sitting on the intersection of financial independence, work, and money, is bound to attract them. There are many reasons for this; the lower barrier to entry compared to other markets, the lack of public knowledge on the subject, and greedy human nature to name a few.
Moderating a subreddit dedicated to forex (or anything trading realted for that matter,) presents extra challenges beyond your regular sub. Marketers and scammers are super motivated, and MLM / referral marketing is extremely popular right now, which can turn everyday regular users into sources of spam.
How we currently tackle this problem involves technology (scripts, bots, and automod,) a mod review workflow, and some smart sleuthing when needed.
The mod team and our scripts aren't perfect though... but the few false positives we get are a very, very small fraction of all mod actions taken (~1%.) Unfortunately, that means some otherwise sincere members get handled roughly, and that can really suck.. I wish there was a better way, but the alternative is this place becomes a wild west and starts looking like your gmail spam folder.
That said, here's my personal stats for JUST the last 24 hours:
And I'm just one of the mods. . .
So what scammer and marketing trends are we seeing lately?
Honestly, it can be really frustrating at times.. luckily the scripts we have in place make weeding out ~80% of these jokers quite easy and quick. Heck, we had one scammer who blew through 12+ accounts over the last few days trying to scam people but none of their posts ever saw the light of day thanks to the spam triggers I've written.
What motivates the mod team to keep this place clean? That's an easy answer: The majority of users here are new to trading. Making sure they aren't food for the wolves is important.
But even with all the measures we take, some bad actors still get through.
So here's where you can help: Use the report button! Anytime you see something that you think fits the descriptions listed above, or violates our sidebar rules, just report it. Even if you're not 100% sure, don't be afraid to use the report tool.. The worst thing that can happen is the mod team reviews and approves it, but the best outcome is you directly help keep this place clean and humming! :)
And the mod team is always looking to improve where it can: I've already talked about what we do to scrub away bad actors, but one place we could do better is education. The plan is to rewrite a good portion of the wiki to include the following sections:
(Titles above are a work in progress ;P)
Are you a good writer and want to help out with this? Think you can write up a killer wiki article on spotting scam artists? Message the mods and let us know!
Finally, a reminder, we are still interested in taking on more moderators and will be revisiting that very shortly. If you'd be interested, read through this post and reply accordingly: https://www.reddit.com/Forex/comments/h7ok6k/seeking_more_mods_recruitment_thread/

Capital gains tax on overseas shares

Hello,
Im trying to work out if capital gains tax is due on overseas share trades when no gain has been made in $ terms but a forex gain in £ has occured. I am using Interactive Brokers who allow me to loan USD secured against my GBP balance.
Example:
Acquisition: 01.01.20, GBPUSD 1:1.5
- USA shares purchase price $150 (£100) (purchased with loaned amount of $150)
- Interactive Brokers Loan liability $150 (£100) (loan is in $ and will be repaid in $, the repaybale amount in $ will not change)

Disposal: 31.01.20, GBPUSD 1:1.2
- USA shares disposal price $150 (£125) (no change in usd share price but change in gbp due to fx rate, $150 disposal proceeds stay in usd and immediately pay off the loan)
- Interactive brokers loan liability repaid $150 (£125) (In GBP the usd loan has increased from £100 to £125 due to the fx rate change)

Overall Gain/Loss
Gains/Losses:Gain/loss on share price = $0 (£25 gain when converted to gbp due to fx rate change)
Gain/loss on loan repayment = $0 (-£25 loss when converted to gbp due to fx rate change)
Net = £0

Any advice is appreciated, thankyou.

Ninjatrader - Selected Dorman, but now which broker for license key?

Having been approved by Dorman and receiving the green light to fund a Ninjatrader8 account, I now must purchase a license key.
When purchasing the license key, I must once again select a broker. My options are:
"NinjaTrader Brokerage" "City Index" "FOREX.com" "FXCM (non-US)" "Interactive Brokers" "Oanda" "TD AMERITRADE" "Multi Broker (Includes all above)" "CQG (for existing customers only)"
I'm not really sure what I'm selecting at this stage. Is there any advantage between one and another? Does choosing something like "TD Ameritrade" change anything about the platform or chart-trading abilities I've gotten used to on the Ninjatrader Demo? Does Dorman fall under "NinjaTrader Brokerage"? Is it advantageous to select "Multi Broker" so that my trades can execute on any of the above brokerages, allowing for increased liquidity?

How do I choose a currency pair for Forex trading?

Here are some steps that you can take to choose the best currency pairs to trade in forex:
1- Open charts of at least seven currency pairs
This could be your morning coffee time read. Before getting distracted by the news and the noise from the media, it is always best to take an unbiased look at the charts to see how the markets are doing. Which pairs are under pressure? Are any of them consolidating? Which pairs are moving up? Is there a specific currency that is behaving the same against most other currencies? This initial, unbiased interaction with the currency pairs on the forex dance floor is important because it will help you prepare for the next step of choosing the best currency pairs to trade in forex.
2- Skim through the latest market news:
Now that you have your heart set on a few currencies, you can quickly listen to the latest global news on your local news media, to see if there are any unusual market updates. This can include a Chinese stock market drop, a (lack of) interest rates hike, or a Swiss Franc jawboning). Reading the news will help you discover the latest market sentiment and the risk-off/ risk-on situation of the best currency pairs to trade in forex. We would typically want to avoid currency pairs that are facing huge volatility risk because even though one could argue you can find trading opportunities in volatile markets, I would argue chances are the market chaos and lack of a solid direction would kick you in the butt with unexpected surprises. Always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to investing your hard-earned cash!
3- Check out Invest Diva’s blog for the latest forex trading strategies
Now that you have the breaking news on hand, you can turn to our blog for the longer term, solid trading strategies on select currency pairs. If you find the currency pairs you had your eyes on, great! Read on and find out if these are the best currency pairs to trade in forex right now.
You should also determine if these pairs are suitable for your portfolio at this time. It is important to note that we don’t publish forex trading strategies for every currency pair, every day. The reasons include our goal to cut down on market noise, as well as avoiding to mislead forex traders to trade more than they should. We have noticed that traders with larger risk appetite tend to jump on any trading signal we publish, whether it is suitable for their portfolio or not. So, in order to promote responsible trading, we have limited our trading signals to only 3 per week. Anything more than that needs a thorough consultation with your truly, to analyze your current account, open positions, available margin, investment portfolio, and more.

[Beginner Investor] Need help vetting my thoughts!

Hi Everyone!

Been doing quite a bit of reading these past couple weeks to finally start off on my investment path, but still feel uncertain on a few points, and I was hoping some kind soul could help vet my thoughts?

  1. Due to risk apetite, current situation, 15% DWT, and pursuit of a globally diversified passive investing strategy i've narrowed it down to starting off with IWDA (Might read up more on SWRD) + EIMI for now.a. Although these ETF's are bought in foreign fx, they're still the best option in terms of TER.ie. in comparison to SGX traded alternatives for global exposure (ex. sgx s27 for S&P500)
  2. I've opened a Saxo account which i intend to grow till i hit 100K, at which point I should swap to IB.
  3. My Saxo account is set to SGD, but ultimately that setting won't really matter as IWDA and EMIM are bought on LSE so i'll have to take the forex risk regardless.
  4. Due to all the fees involved, it makes more sense to DCA into these ETF's on a quarterly basis vs for example 1K SGD on a monthly basis.
Do the above four points seem reasonable?
I'm also curious, I've got quite a bit of savings in an Irish bank account.... I'm thinking of moving that over to my SG bank using transferwise to function as my emergency fund. Or would it make more sense transferring it to SAXO to use for investing in the LSE based ETF's?

Thank you so much for any advice, i'd really really appreciate someone helping to sort out my thoughts!

UK Plebs - what are you using *now* to get in on this?

aay.
The current consensus seems to be RH is awful and is in pre-release right now anyway - ameritrade doesn't appear to support non American peeps, and i'm very very leary of doing anything with Degiro without some more research. What do you use and why?
edit: After 1 week and £2,000,000 of money mangling:
IG went down twice, right when something valuable was happening. Also the API is broken. Get a general 'cheap goods' feel from them, and they don't support straight options trading
Trading212 is built on AWS and is tangibly better performing. The UI for desktop is a bit too javascripty with flashy effects and there's a general feeling it was designed mobile first, but I have to admit it's quite pleasant to use. Plan to look at the API at some point.
Edit 2:
InteractiveBrokers gave me an account up to a point but I'm too poor to qualify for their services according to their regulations section. Need $40k+ liquidity to your name before they'll look at you.
Plus500 is nice, if a bit basic and clunky to get started, but the only options trading it offers is CFD which defeats the purpose - at least for me.
Ava Trade is very very 1990's looking for the web platform and the demo only offers forex.
Edit 3:
Ameritrade rejects UK applicants after you've given them your info.
Tradestation does not support any UK banks for initial funding out of the box - waiting for contact.
Bit the bullet and going with Degiro - currently inundated with new applications so _10 days_ delay expected.
Still looking for an actual options broker ;\

Which broker should I use now in Europe for long term investment?

So I have previously used Plus500 for forex trading and Etoro for a little bit of stock trading.
I want to start regularly investing in mainly (growth-stock) mutual funds for long term (20+ years), but I don't know which app/site/broker I should use for this. Robinhood is not avaliable here, and Plus500 is charging all kinds of fees. I signed up and tried Interactive Brokers and Degiro because I read a lot about them here. Frankly, IB is a bit intimidating even after having played around with it. I also really like the simplicity of Etoro for example, but even when stock-trading there were a lot of stocks I couldn't find on there.
I guess my main concern is, I want something that 1) Is not over complicated like IB, 2) is avaliable in Europe (Hungary), 3) Doesn't have crazy fees (or maybe even no fees) for long term mutual fund investing and 4) is likely to be around in the future for long term.
I would appreciate some tips from you more experienced redditors :)
