trading strategy execution and management using official interactive brokers API

No GUI required for this build. The algo will be launched via a linux bash/ksh shell script. The dev effort is only required for the actual algo executable in Python or C++ using the IB API. I prefer the work to be done in Python, but C++ would be an acceptable alternative. Based on the actual logic for the algo, I see it taking between 3-5 hours for the build and testing for someone with experience building strategies via the IB gateway.

Please note that IB TWS will not be running on the platform where this will be deployed.

The strategy will be deployed on a Linux platform on a virtual/dedicated server hosted by AWS or digital ocean. I should be able to handle the scripting/deployment for that bit, but if you have experience on that front then it's an added bonus.

I will be providing a delimited flat file with a bunch of exchange-traded symbols along with other data elements that will consist of one or more of the following:

1. Numerical thresholds

2. Signals

3. Dates

4. percentage allocation per order etc

The algo will use these values to enter, monitor and exit the trades.

The development of this will also involve initiating and maintaining a connection with the IB gateway. Authentication credentials will be maintained via a config file.

Experience building equity/options/futures strategies using the IB gateway and API is a must. Please do not apply otherwise.

Please let me know your quote based on if you will only build the strategy, or both the bash/ksh script and the strategy for deployment on the linx platform (AWS/digital ocean).

I'm looking to start the dev work ASAP.

I will provide samples of the delimited source data file after the first round of discussions.
