Interactive Brokers Review: Low Fees for Mature Traders ...

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.

[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/

Daily analysis of cryptocurrencies 20191109 (Market index 38 — Fear state)

Malaysia To Impose Restrictions On Cash Transactions The Malaysian government plans to impose restrictions on cash transactions reports local media platform The Star. According to the publication, the move is part of efforts to combat money laundering in the country. Commenting on the plan, Datuk Abdul Rasheed Ghaffour, the deputy governor of Malaysia’s Central Bank Negara (BNM), remarked: “This is to address the abuse of physical cash used for illicit activities.” Malaysian economist, Barjoyai Bardai believes the proposed cash transaction limit in the country could boost digital currency adoption.
EU Is Working On ECB Digital Currency With Possible Progress Next Year According to Reuters, progress on the feasibility of a digital currency backed by the European Central Bank could be made in the coming months, senior officials said on Nov 8, cautioning that the project faced challenges and was for the long term.
Tunisia Issues Central Bank Digital Currency On Nov 9, the TASS news agency reported that the Central Bank of Tunisia was to be the first to release a digital currency. The ‘E-dinar’ was officially launched in the test form at the Forex Club of Tunisia, with a symbolic transfer of one dinar between the head of the central bank, Marouane El Abassi, and a representative of the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down nearly 5% at its current price of $8,850, which marks a notable drop from its 24-hour highs of $9,300.
Prior to today’s drop, Bitcoin has been caught in a relatively tight trading range between $9,000 and $9,500 for a couple of weeks, and neither bulls nor bears had been able to incur enough strength to push the crypto out of this trading range until early this morning when bears forced it below its lower range boundary at $9,000.
In the time since its drop, BTC has shown no sign of slowing its decent, as it continued to slowly grind lower as the morning dragged on.

How-to & FAQ for holding Bitcoin and Ethereum in an RRSP/TFSA

A few months ago I came across a way to hold crypto in my RRSP/TFSA and have been answering questions about how to do that in comments, DM's, and Skype consults. I figured it would be helpful to put together one big comprehensive FAQ. Cryptocurrency is treated as a commodity by the CRA and you must pay capital gains taxes on any profits if held outside a TFSA. If bitcoin goes to $1m as some are predicting, the Canadian government is going to be taxing a huge windfall in capital gains taxes.
BACKGROUND
Bitcoin & other crypto cannot be held directly in a RRSP/TFSA, and there are no eligible ETF's in North America yet. However, the ETN COINXBT which trades on the Stockholm Stock Exchange in Sweden (Nasdaq Stockholm) is eligible.
ABOUT COINXBT
COINXBT holds bitcoin directly and its price per share is based on a 0.005 multiple of the current bitcoin price.
For example, if the current price of bitcoin is $10000USD, a share of COINXBT will be worth $50USD (ie: $493 Swedish Kroner)
Company's website and full prospectus at: https://xbtprovider.com/
Price quote / chart: https://www.bloomberg.com/quote/COINXBT:SS
HOW-TO TRADE
Only some Canadian brokerages allow you to trade on eligible international exchanges in your TFSA. Some do not.
Typically placing trades on international exchanges online is not an option and must be made over the phone broker-assisted at a much higher cost than typical North American securities.
CANADIAN BROKERS
I've called pretty much every brokerage to inquire if international securities can be held in a TFSA and what the fee is to transact. You may want to call yourself to see if policies have changed, but here's a summary:
Not available, or not available in RRSP/TFSA:
FAQ's
Are you sure it's legal? I'm quite sure it's illegal.
Who is your broker? CAD account?
How do I make a trade once I'm ready?
How do I calculate the number of shares to trade to max out my TFSA?
Market or Limit order?
When can I trade? Is it only possible to make the trade while the Swedish market is open and the TSX are open at the same time? Or can you place the order at any time of day?
Which number did you use to contact the brokerages?
What happens when there is a fork?
What about other cryptocurrencies?
How is the price of COINXBT determined?
Why not just buy GBTC?
Why can't I place a trade online myself?
Feedback
If you've managed to get crypto into your RRSP/TFSA in any other ways than listed above please do leave a comment and I'll update the post. Thanks!

Choosing the right broker

Hello!
I am ready to dive in the world of trading and after my basic education I am starting to pappertrade. I figured out that I sould choose from now the boroker I am gonna use in the future to get used to the platform. The problem is that there are WAY to many brokers out there and its hard to choose. I need your help reddit!

What I need:
- I am mainly gonna daytrade forex, maybe some stocks and futures at the future.
- Low commisions, fees & spreads! I'm thikning of taking trades on small timeframes (5-20 mins , or a few hours). I am looking for a true ECN with comission model. I dont want conflict of interests with my broker
- A good platform. I don't like MT4. I liked cTrader.
- No requotes - No slippage - Fast executions!
- Leverage. I need at least 1:200 , so I probably need a broker in Australia (?)
- No problems with withdrawals.
- Regulation and good reputation! I don't want to loose my money!
- Low minimum deposit! I'm thinking about starting with 1000 euros, maybe 2000 max.

Brokers I have found surfing the net:
- Interactive Brokers
- Saxo bank
- IG
- Dukascopy
and the cTrader brokers:
- IC markets
- Pepperstone
- FxPro
- Roboforex

What do you guys think? Have you got any experience with those guys? What would you suggest? All comments and extra info are welcome!

r/Forex mods controlled by Pepperstone

Redditors, just so you know, people associated with Pepperstone control Forex.
They just banned me for my post below, alleging "Note from the moderators: Copy / Paste spamming of your opinion on a broker comes off as you being a paid basher."
IB doesn't pay random nobody's on the internet like me you corrupt morons. My dislike of Pepperstone or in fact any business that fundamentally thrives on exploiting vulnerable poeple motivates me.
Please read my post below which caused me to be censored by corrupt Forex who want you to be cheated by Pepperstone:
Pepperstone - never ever use them (self.Forex) submitted 3 hours ago by playingpoodles Hi, just a quick suggestion of my opinions regarding Pepperstone. Nobody can use Pepperstone and pay their default fees and profit over the longer term ever. In my opinion, which I think will be born out by your own account if you are with Pepperstone, and bother to look, it is impossible to profit over any extended (eg. three months or more) period of time while using Pepperstone. This is because their margin prices from what I can see seems to be around 15%, or around 15 times IB. Think about it, you go long/short a pair, and profit 10% on average over time, that means you're 5% in the red over that same period of time. Nobody can out-trade that handicap. Pepperstone's spreads are also around 10 times Interactive Brokers. This would make difficult to profit over time, but not impossible, but see above it is impossible because of the margin interest charged by Pepperstone. Pepperstone's business model is to "truck" vulnerable men who want to get rich quick trading forex with probably usually small account sizes. I'm sure some better off men would set up on Pepperstone too after some sort of winfdall inheritance or whatever. But people who've managed to earn real $100,000s are unlikely to generously give it up to Pepperstone's rich, exploitative, owners. That's okay to Pepperstone, they're fine ripping $1000s off everyday disadvantaged Western men. If you want to trade forex, use IB, if you can't use IB in your jurisdiction Google a similar cost effective competitor. Or trade forex in futures lots through CME using IB, Ameritrade or TastyWorks instead.

Algorithmic Trading Strategy for Forex (EUR/USD)

Dear Reddit,
We are a team of three people that have developed an algorithmic trading strategy for Forex during the beginning of this year.
It is coded in .NET and the broker we use is Interactive Brokers (API). Strategy is simple and trades after technical indicators, but highly optimized.
The algorithms works very well and has already given us a return of 30% without margin during three weeks of live trading. We did get good results when we backtested the algorithms too (6 months), but we get even better results during live trading. We have developed our own backtesting software with our own recorded data. The strategy is only trading EUUSD right now because this currency pair has the highest amount of liquidity in the market, and our robot needs liquidity. We hold positions from 60 ms up to 1 hour.
We are trading Live with our own money right now. But we are very interested to get in touch with people in this area to continue to develop this strategy, attract capital or collaborate with other people in this area.
We often get the question: "Is it really possible to make money with algorithmic trading?" Answer: Yes you can, but it involves a lot of work, experience and sense of how markets work. This strategy for example should only be used when the markets conditions are "right" for this strategy and that is; High liquidity in the FX markets, low volatility and no major news events or volatile stock markets that can have spill over effects on the FX market. Otherwise big unexpectedly moves in this currency pair will occur more often and and this will result in unnecessary losses.
Which boards or communities are best for this kind of things?
Please let us know. If you have any questions about our strategy or anything else, feel free to ask :)
Thanks.

Interactive Brokers vs. others for a beginner?

Hi all,
Background For a while now I have been looking into Forex trading compared to other markets for the following reasons:
Forex to me seems to be the best option, and I can primarily focus on technical indications (not discounting fundamentals of course). I most likely will only have around 1-2 hours a day to trade + weekends. Looking to trade on 5 min - 30 min time scale, and some longer term trades, holding for a few weeks.
Living in NZ, there are not many solid online Forex brokers, and what seems to be the best one here (CMC markets) appears to have issues with stops not being filled, and other fundamental issues with their platform. Low cost, good software and professionalism is what I'm looking for.
Will paper trade for 3-4 months to establish that I can actually do it, but I want to be able to learn and trade using the platform that I will go live on.
Brokerages
Looking at the FAQ here, and browsing the web, Interactive Brokers seems to be the most professional and upfront brokerage that I have seen. However, I understand that it is not that easy to learn how to use their software, so the barrier for entry is high.
So my question is,
Is Interactive Brokers too hard/too complicated for a beginner? Or are other brokerages better for my needs?
Cost, platform and scaleability (eg News feed additions and more advanced tools) are key points for me. I also like the idea of having one account that I can trade stocks with as well through IB.
Not sure how good IB's tutorials are for learning their platform.
Sorry for such a long post but, you know, education is everything!

Different descriptions of suitability embrace ensuring transaction prices aren't extreme and that their suggestions aren't unsuitable for the shopper. Examples that will violate suitability embrace extreme buying and selling, churning the account merely to generate extra commissions, and often switching account property to generate transaction revenue for the broker-dealer.
Additionally, the necessity to disclose potential conflicts of curiosity just isn't as strict a requirement for brokers; funding solely must be appropriate, it would not essentially be in keeping with the person investor's aims and profile.

Below the suitability requirement, so long as the funding is appropriate for the shopper, it may be bought for the shopper. This could additionally incentivize brokers to promote their very own merchandise forward of competing for merchandise that will price much less.

The Brief-Lived Fiduciary Rule

Whereas the time period "suitability" was usual for transactional accounts or brokerage accounts, the Department of Labor Fiduciary Rule, proposed to toughen issues up for brokers. Anybody with retirement cash underneath administration, who made suggestions or solicitations for an IRA or different tax-advantaged retirement accounts, could be thought-about a fiduciary required to stick to that commonplace, slightly than to the suitability commonplace that was in any other case in impact.
The fiduciary rule had a protracted—and in the end unsuccessful—implementation. Initially proposed in 2010, it was scheduled to enter impact between April 10, 2017, and January 1, 2018. After President Trump took workplace it was postponed to June 9, 2017, together with a transition interval for sure exemptions extending via January 1, 2018.
Subsequently, implementation of all components of the rule was pushed again to July 1, 2019. Earlier than that would occur, the rule was vacated following a June 2018 decision by the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court.

Fiat-to-Cryptocurrency Exchanges
Cryptocurrency Exchange?
A crypto exchange is an online website that provides a platform for the buying, selling or exchange of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin, ether and litecoin for fiat money like USD, EUR and GBP.
Types of Cryptocurrency Exchanges
There are basically three different types of cryptocurrency exchange platforms. The difference is due to what determines the price of the cryptocoin on the exchange platform.
Trading Platforms
These websites are marketplace where potential buyers and sellers of cryptocurrency can place “buy” or “sell” orders. The buyers and sellers do not interact with each other. Each person only interacts with the platform. The service charges fees upon the conclusion of every transaction.
Peer-to-Peer (P2P) Exchange Platforms
Instead of interacting solely with the platform, these services connect buyers and sellers directly. There are no fixed market prices as everything depends on the two parties coming to an agreement. The role of the cryptocurrency exchange is to provide escrow and transaction mediation services.

https://preview.redd.it/i3161q3oqoh21.jpg?width=343&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8f17b5c87199744c47d628515a95df20a0d6e41f
Crypto Brokers
These function like forex broker services. Potential buyers can visit these platforms and purchase cryptocurrencies. Broker sets the price of the cryptocoins.
Smart Contract
Like many ideas in the blockchain industry, a general confusion shrouds so called 'smart contracts'. A new technology made possible by public blockchains, smart contracts are difficult to understand because the term partly confuses the core interaction described. While a standard contract outlines the terms of a relationship (usually one enforceable by law), a smart contract enforces a relationship with cryptographic code. Put differently, smart contracts are programs that execute exactly as they are set up to by their creators.
Smart contracts are self-executing contracts with the terms of the agreement between buyer and seller is directly written into lines of code. The code and the agreements contained therein exist across a distributed, Blockchain network.
How smart contracts work
It’s worth noting that bitcoin was the first to support basic smart contracts in the sense that the network can transfer value from one person to another. The network of nodes will only validate transactions if certain conditions are met.
But, bitcoin is limited to the currency use case. By contrast, ethereum replaces bitcoin's more restrictive language (a scripting language of a hundred or so scripts) and replaces it with a language that allows developers to write their own programs.
Ethereum allows developers to program their own smart contracts or 'autonomous agents', as the ethereum white paper calls them. The language is 'Turing-complete', meaning it supports a broader set of computational instructions.

https://preview.redd.it/2iterpbpqoh21.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=31a179bc2465847cd91bb5d96d295d52c790cd56
Smart contracts can:

  • +Function as 'multi-signature' accounts, so that funds are spent only when a required percentage of people agree
  • Manage agreements between users. lets say, if one buys insurance from the other
  • Provide utility to other contracts (similar to how a software library works)
  • Store information about an application, such as domain registration information or membership records.
Strength in numbers
📷

  • Extrapolating that last point, smart contracts are likely to need assistance from other smart contracts.
  • When someone places a simple bet on the temperature on a hot summer day, it might trigger a sequence of contracts under the hood.
  • One contract would use outside data to determine the weather and another contract could settle the bet based on the information it received from the first contract when the conditions are met.
Running each contract requires ether transaction fees, which depend on the amount of computational power required

Protected Profits Review 14th September 2015 - Some claim this is a scam others boast it’s a success story. What I unveil in this review will allow you to make up your own mind.

Just like a workman's tool, the honest truth can be tapped through experience. Read on, discover the facts for yourself, be your own person, your mind and choices are yours, and yours alone.

Quick View DETAILS:

Industry: Binary Options Website Link: ProtectedProfits.com Product: Automated trading system Release Date: 14th September 2015
 

How will Protected Profits BENEFIT you as a trader?

If you are new to trading binary options, or have been trading for quite a while as in my case, Protected Profits through correct use will step up your trading game. To assist you to this end ensure you read my “WARNING advice” below.
 
The Protect Profits offical site is live as of today, click the below Link to find out the specifics. As a cautionary measure please ensure you complete reading this article before registering with Protected Profits.
 
Protected Profits Official Link
 
Like any new flash and shiny product (also referred to as hot potatoes), approach with caution, make sure you read and heed my “WARNING advice” below.
 
 

How To USE THIS TOOL:

Just like most experiences in life, a successful outcome is in part determined by how you challenge yourself and conduct yourself in the process. Whatever resources you have available to you capitalize on to achieve your desired outcome. Protected Profits as a trading tool responds in similar way. Optimal outcomes require ideal trading conditions. From my experience only use this tool during at peak trading times, i.e. at the OPENING oand just before the opening of each foreign exchange market, trade for no more than a two hour period, i.e. European market (6:00GMT), Asian market (23:30GMT) and US market (13:30GMT). During these trading times the markets are most volatile, i.e. major asset movements. These times are ideal for Protected Profit’s to do it’s job. Make sure you only target currency pairs specific to the markets times you are trading. i.e. US Session (13:30GMT) only focus on using currency pairs such as, USD/CAD, EUUSD, USD/JPY, NZD/USD, /USD/CHF.
 
 

WARNING Advice:

1. Always remember when testing out any new trading ventures, manual or automatic, make sure you have a money management plan, once you have a strategy in place stick with it.
 
2. A FREE trading DEMO account is a great way to test out new strategies so you don’t go bust in the process.  
3. Not all brokers are made equal when it comes to great customer service, being able to withdraw funds, having a user friendly, easy to use trading platform to work with. I have traded with a countless number of brokers, some I have had nightmare experiences. I prefer to trade only using industry regulated brokers tick all the boxes, as above ( I have listed these below). If you are not sure, try out one of the brokers listed below, do a background check as required, they will provide you with a demo account on request.
 
 

Tried & TRUSTED BROKERS:

 
Banc De Binary
 
Cherry Trade
 
Interactive Options
 
OptionFair
 
 

LIMITED Time Offer ACT NOW !

This sounds like sales speak to me. In my opinion using Protected Profits as a trading tool, you have more to gain than lose. The decision process, moving forward, you can either read and bounce off the differing opinions from countless internet bloggers, or you can air on the side of caution, keep my “Warning Advice” under you belt, approach with caution, register with Protected Profits, take baby steps, follow my advice, make some money. I hope you found this article informative, I wish you all the the best and successes along.
 
Please remember to comment below, look forward to your feedback so we can share in your experiences.

News Update - 08.02.18

1) Do you remember the B2BX Roadmap? Of course you do! Our company reputation, White Paper and Roadmap are the aspects most ICO participants pay attention to.
The roadmap for the B2BX ICO included options for action depending on the amount of funds collected.
🔥 Now it's time to present the actual B2BX development plan!
The B2BX Roadmap: https://medium.com/@b2brokeb2broker-past-present-future-f2876c406a7c
We marked on the map the most important events for the company, not just plans for 2018-2019, but a short review of the past. The most important events of the future, of course, are obtaining licenses, developing our own technologies and opening offices in strategically important locations on the financial map of the world. All this brings us closer to the moment when B2BX becomes Prime Broker in the market of cryptocurrency liquidity! Full version on Medium.
2) Integration with ONEZERO
We ordered the placement on servers of Equinix - LD4. This data center hosts the largest European banks and brokers. Given that B2BX will have a cross-connect with liquidity providers, the speed of obtaining prices from providers and the speed of execution of orders will be as high as possible! New working conditions with OneZero will reduce the cost of services for our customers and increase our attractiveness for new customers. Recall that in B2BX will be able to nominate margin accounts in any currency, including cryptocurrencies.
3) CRYPTOCURRENCY PAYMENT GATEWAY
There is also the possibility of accepting a B2B coin with zero commission. We have started integration with 10 merchants and have begun to develop a site for B2B coin, which will accumulate information about all crypto-brokers, exchanges and other customers that will start to accept the B2B coin for payment. As we launch each merchant, we will send out a newsletter. We have also implemented the support of tokens based on Ethereum standard ERC20. Now every merchant can start receiving any token/coin issued on the Ethereum platform. Please note that if you have a website, an online store, a broker company, crypto-exchange or a marketplace, and you want to expand payment methods you should connect B2Broker crypto gateway. To do this, you just need to select the cryptocurrencies from the list that you want to accept (BTC, BCC, ETH, LTC, DASH, XMR, B2B, BTG (bitcoin gold) and hundreds of tokens released on the Ethereum platform), provide purse addresses and make an easy integration with your site. In just an hour your customers will be able to pay for goods or services using cryptocurrency with low commission rates every day, free installation, no monthly fee, no freeze period, no banks and no any third intermediaries.
4) INVESTMENT PLATFORM
To date, this product is used by 11 brokers, two of which have become our customers this year. The investment platform allows brokers to popularize cryptocurrency trading products while customers have the opportunity to subscribe to the signals of professional traders and earn. Also for professional traders it is possible to create PAMM accounts or portfolios of cryptocurrencies. The IT department has redesigned the back-end platform to make the MT5 work more stable.
5) Work with clients
The B2Broker account department adjusts business processes to improve operational efficiency. For example, improving the interaction with the development department will positively affect the speed of working with customers. Of course, the number of our employees is growing, but we understand that without optimizing business processes, we can not build an effective company! We are expanding the product line and preparing knowledge bases to quickly train employees.
Our clients comprise 72 companies, 25 of which use B2Broker’s cryptocurrency solutions!
The team is also developing new standards of service which will correspond to the status of Prime Broker.
6) PLATFORM FOR ICO
To date, our platform for ICO has benefited 4 companies. Of course, all payments go through our crypto gateway leaving these companies to concentrate on their marketing. Such a collaboration has proved its effectiveness. Large ICOs prefer this model, choosing a solution that is ready, tested and constantly updated. A demo version is available by clicking on the link.
Oh, and by the way!
This week in Finance Magnates there was a press release about the opening of office in Malaysia. https://www.financemagnates.com/forex/technology/b2broker-extends-asian-expansion-malaysian-office/
🔜 In mid-May, a summit on blockchain technology will take place in New York. https://www.coindesk.com/events/consensus-2018/sponsors/
