One thing I can't figure out is how to get the trading price after placing market order. Has anyone figured it out? I have linked a cell on the Advanced Orders worksheet that does a calculation in the price column of the sheet. As the value changes I am trying to How to get Dividends Receivable or interest payable on ibapi in python?
It might be a messy day So I decide to build a preventive procedure that the Thanasarn Porthaveepong 3 6. How to retrieve transaction history records? Basically, I want to use python to query my IB order history and do some analyze afterwards. But I could not find any existing API for me to query these data, does anyone have experience to do this?

Extracting multiple contracts from reqHistoricalData not working I am trying to store the results of reqHistoricalData into a dictionary of dataframes, where each key is the ticker name and the value is the corresponding time series data frame.
I guess everything is in the title. They do have an installation shell script but nothing else. I was looking for any other scripts or, maybe, some CLI flags to make it perform an uninstall but What I did so far: I installed the latest version for Windows from here I In general we find the Quantopian simulation to be a good but not perfect tool to understand how your algorithm will trade on real money.
The best way to bridge that gap and improve the fidelity of your own simulations via adjusting your cost or market impact assumptions for example is to do what you're proposing and test your algorithm on IB's demo and then small capital real money accounts.
Probably obvious, but the more actively traded your algo is the greater the risk of mis-estimating your trading costs. Nishant, just want to add that I have been live trading since April and it's worked very well in terms of the executions, etc. Only thing that comes up from time to time after hours is that you have to re-link your algo to IB because the connection gets broken, but it's never been an issue that has negatively impacted me.
I keep multiple accounts at IB. You don't need to pay for data because Q uses its own data for your algo and IB doesn't actually need a datafeed for placing orders it may need data for complex order types like VWAP, not sure, but not for regular ones.
You can have multiple accounts at IB linked so things like minimum activity requirements aggregate between them. You can log in from a second login to the same account while Q is running to observe or even interact with the orders.
Technically, I suppose you could run a second Q algorithm on the second login but you'd need to make sure that they traded different symbols and didn't interact with each other in any other way. I have never tried it and wouldn't recommend it. WRT Photi's question, the link can get broken for a variety of factors but it's very, very rare.
The way it works is Quantopian doesn't keep your password but instead, just logs you into IB's TWS Gateway software which is running in the background. If that program shuts down for some reason, needs to be upgraded or otherwise disconnects, Q can't log you back in because it doesn't keep your authentication info, so it requests that you re-login. I think it happened maybe once or twice this year. Thank Alex for your reply. I know that IB let you create several linked accounts but all these accounts use the same login.
Also, IB allows for one additional login for all linked accounts. Thus no more than 2 IB accounts can be accessed at the same time. What I have is a 'main' login that every account is linked to and another, secondary or maybe that's the primary I then use the individual logins as the algorithmic trading logins on Q and my own hand-written platform and use the main master logon to login manually as needed.
Is anyone having issues logging in using the IB key app to generate response strings? I have a feeling that Quantopian only supports access cards. Sorry, something went wrong.
