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.

    • BITCOIN STRENGTHENS CORRELATION WITH STOCK MARKET Over recent days, Bitcoin (BTC) has been forging a strong correlation to the equities market once again and it has been observed that this occurs usually when global uncertainty is rife. Currently, investors are wracked with fears over the dwindling prospects of second domestic stimulus measures in the US, coupled with the weaning possibility of a sharp economic recovery. Also, the upcoming US presidential elections are adding to the growing uncertainty surrounding the markets. These fears will likely remain unsolved in the near-term, making further choppiness in the equities market very possible. That said, Bitcoin will likely get caught up in the mix, giving its correlation to the stock market. Meanwhile, an On-Chain analyst has said that he expects the Bitcoin-Equities correlation to fade in the coming months. He explained that subsequent sharp declines in equities will eventually stop pulling Bitcoin lower as the crypto reaches its lowest technically possible levels. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart Key BTC Levels to Watch At press time, Bitcoin trades at $10,511, about 0.8% increase in the day. However, it remains trapped in its weekly consolidation range. Last week, bulls attempted to pull the benchmark cryptocurrency out of its downward spiral and ended up taking the price to highs of $11,200. The rejection from that level was decisive and sharp, causing Bitcoin to fall to the level it currently trades at. Meanwhile, the equities market was able to post a modest recovery today, which, as an extension, has given Bitcoin a reprieve for the near-term. Still, the absence of any significant positive development around the US stimulus program or the pandemic-induced economic crisis may continue to burden the cryptocurrency market from rising in the near-term.

    • ETHEREUM (ETH) PRICE ANALYSIS: BATTLES THE RESISTANCE AT $390, EYES THE HIGH AT $420 Key Highlights Ethereum has a fresh target price of $420 The coin is still battling the resistance at $390 Ethereum (ETH) Current Statistics The current price: $381.78 Market Capitalization: $43,016,171,550 Trading Volume: $12,067,100,125 Major supply zones: $280, $320, $360 Major demand zones: $160, $140, $100 Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis September 20, 2020 From the rejection at the $390 resistance, Ether is falling to the previous low at $378. Each time the market falls it will retrace to the low of $378 and $381. ETH will rise again to retest the $390 resistance. The coin is rising and it has reached $381 at the writing. The crypto has resumed an upward move as it found support above $380. On the downside, if price has retraced and broken below $350, the selling pressure would have persisted. ETH/USD – Daily Chart ETH Technical Indicators Reading The price has earlier broken above the resistance line of the ascending channel. This assures that the rise of the coin will continue. Another aspect is that price has remained above the EMAs. This also indicates that the coin is rising. ETH/USD – 4 Hour Chart Conclusion From the price action on the 4-hour chart, Ethereum is likely to rise if the current resistance is breached. On September 17, the coin was in an upward move. It was resisted at $390 but the last retraced candle tested the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level. This indicates that the market will rise and reach a high of 1.618 Fibonacci extension level or $420 high. Source: https://learn2.trade

    • cui bono ? https://off-guardian.org/2020/09/17/12-steps-to-create-your-own-pandemic/   I'm still trying to figure out which is ultimately worse - the exploiters who run games like this OR the masses of dummies who fall for it... just sayin'
