IbkrDataToDatabase - A Reliable Downloader of Interactive Brokers Historical Prices

Recommended Posts

I developed the IbkrDataToDatabase application. It downloads historical prices from Interactive Brokers and saves the data to a database. It downloads only new data that doesn't exist in the database yet.


What distinguishes it from competition is that it employs a comprehensive set of techniques to keep your data free of garbage.


I designed this application for a sophisticated user with high quality expectations.


It performs a number of validations to ensure the integrity of data. You can use it to maintain a database with market data on thousands of instruments and sleep well knowing that there is no garbage in it. It logs all its activities, errors, and possible problems into a log file that you can (and should) quickly review.


It automatically discovers all available futures contracts, including those expired within the past 2 years.


Believe it or not, I was able to get 1-minute bars on a few currencies and stocks as far back as 2004.


There are, of course, a number of competitors, including ib loader, ib collector, jtwsdata, jtwsdump, ib data downloader. But none of them, let alone any free alternatives, goes out of their way to ensure data integrity. They also appear to be rusty and not maintained. Support forum links are broken. The documentation mentions facts that haven't been true or relevant for the past 10 years. And last, but not least, you have no idea who is behind those products. I was unable to find those people faces.


For a video tutorial, manual, support forum, and to download a free fully functional 30-day trial, please visit http://yuriygulyayev.x10host.com/Yuriy-Gulyayev-Products-IbkrDataToDatabase.html


I'd be happy to answer any questions.


I also provide trading software architecture/development services in New York City or remotely.

    • GBPJPY: Bullish, Set To Close In On The 150.00 Area GBPJPY: The cross rallied strongly on Thursday opening the door for more price gain in the days ahead. On the downside, support comes in at the 149.00 level where a violation will aim at the 148.50 level. A break below here will target the 148.00 level followed by the 147.50 level. Conversely, resistance is seen at the 149.50 level followed by the 150.00 level. A cut through that level will set the stage for a move further higher towards the 150.50 level. Further out, resistance resides at the 151.50 level. Its daily RSI is pointing higher suggesting further upside pressure. All in all, GBPJPY faces further upside pressure.

    • Good News!! The Eu destructiion project is underway. And here in the UK, the remainers continue to demand a second referendum... which they wont get. What could be nicer than watching the traitors getting the opposite of what they want? And their best argument is that we were too dumb to know what we were voting for. An insult from the people who believe 2+2=5

    • Advice for beginners omg       First "invest" trade a little with real money and see whats your results are, then learn, learn and learn what trading methods are appropriate to you, then when you know what you need to work on then start paper trading / structured practice sessions  ... and btw, you're likely better off never seeking 'confidence'.  Most traders do not need to "establish your confidence".  ie For most traders, confidence leads to mistakes in risk.   Generally speaking, any 'confidence' applied before having traded for ~ 5 years is wasted and costly... If you do need 'confidence' and don't have any , then use what courage you have ...
