I am looking for a trading application which can be run on a mac and which connects to the Interactive Brokers TWS workstation via the documented API.
The application will trade currency pairs by an algorithm i will disclose privately, which needs a couple of parameters. multiple pairs need to be traded concurrently, but no interaction between the algos for the currency pairs is required.
The application needs to retrieve actual quotes in close real time, provide them to the algorithm, and the algorithm will take buy/sell decisions. Orders need to be placed with IB automatically based on the algo output.
The algorithm must be also coded in java and run with the rest of the software. An informational UI window showing actual trades as they are put into the system, and the data on which the decision has been taken must be shown.
When the application starts up, it needs to retrieve the current currency balances from the IB API, and a couple of parameters for the algo need to be entered before the algorithmic trading starts.
A back-test on historical data for at least 12 months, better 24 months needs also to be provided, with clear instructions where to get the historical data (if not available online).
Full source and any necessary compilation resources (must be compilable with standard javac) must be provided upon completion.
The ideal freelancer has trading experience and written java software to interface with IB's API's before, proof of such is requested.
