IB

High-level interface to Interactive Brokers.

class ib_insync.ib.IB[source]

Provides both a blocking and an asynchronous interface to the IB API, using asyncio networking and event loop.

The IB class offers direct access to the current state, such as orders, executions, positions, tickers etc. This state is automatically kept in sync with the TWS/IBG application.

This class has most request methods of EClient, with the same names and parameters (except for the reqId parameter which is not needed anymore). Request methods that return a result come in two versions:

  • Blocking: Will block until complete and return the result. The current state will be kept updated while the request is ongoing;

  • Asynchronous: All methods that have the “Async” postfix. Implemented as coroutines or methods that return a Future and intended for advanced users.

The One Rule:

While some of the request methods are blocking from the perspective of the user, the framework will still keep spinning in the background and handle all messages received from TWS/IBG. It is important to not block the framework from doing its work. If, for example, the user code spends much time in a calculation, or uses time.sleep() with a long delay, the framework will stop spinning, messages accumulate and things may go awry.

The one rule when working with the IB class is therefore that

user code may not block for too long.

To be clear, the IB request methods are okay to use and do not count towards the user operation time, no matter how long the request takes to finish.

So what is “too long”? That depends on the situation. If, for example, the timestamp of tick data is to remain accurate within a millisecond, then the user code must not spend longer than a millisecond. If, on the other extreme, there is very little incoming data and there is no desire for accurate timestamps, then the user code can block for hours.

If a user operation takes a long time then it can be farmed out to a different process. Alternatively the operation can be made such that it periodically calls IB.sleep(0); This will let the framework handle any pending work and return when finished. The operation should be aware that the current state may have been updated during the sleep(0) call.

For introducing a delay, never use time.sleep() but use sleep() instead.

RequestTimeout

Timeout (in seconds) to wait for a blocking request to finish before raising asyncio.TimeoutError. The default value of 0 will wait indefinitely. Note: This timeout is not used for the *Async methods.

Type

float

MaxSyncedSubAccounts

Do not use sub-account updates if the number of sub-accounts exceeds this number (50 by default).

Type

int

Events:
  • connectedEvent (): Is emitted after connecting and synchronzing with TWS/gateway.

  • disconnectedEvent (): Is emitted after disconnecting from TWS/gateway.

  • updateEvent (): Is emitted after a network packet has been handeled.

  • pendingTickersEvent (tickers: Set[Ticker]): Emits the set of tickers that have been updated during the last update and for which there are new ticks, tickByTicks or domTicks.

  • barUpdateEvent (bars: BarDataList, hasNewBar: bool): Emits the bar list that has been updated in real time. If a new bar has been added then hasNewBar is True, when the last bar has changed it is False.

  • newOrderEvent (trade: Trade): Emits a newly placed trade.

  • orderModifyEvent (trade: Trade): Emits when order is modified.

  • cancelOrderEvent (trade: Trade): Emits a trade directly after requesting for it to be cancelled.

  • openOrderEvent (trade: Trade): Emits the trade with open order.

  • orderStatusEvent (trade: Trade): Emits the changed order status of the ongoing trade.

  • execDetailsEvent (trade: Trade, fill: Fill): Emits the fill together with the ongoing trade it belongs to.

  • commissionReportEvent (trade: Trade, fill: Fill, report: CommissionReport): The commission report is emitted after the fill that it belongs to.

  • updatePortfolioEvent (item: PortfolioItem): A portfolio item has changed.

  • positionEvent (position: Position): A position has changed.

  • accountValueEvent (value: AccountValue): An account value has changed.

  • accountSummaryEvent (value: AccountValue): An account value has changed.

  • pnlEvent (entry: PnL): A profit- and loss entry is updated.

  • pnlSingleEvent (entry: PnLSingle): A profit- and loss entry for a single position is updated.

  • tickNewsEvent (news: NewsTick): Emit a new news headline.

  • newsBulletinEvent (bulletin: NewsBulletin): Emit a new news bulletin.

  • scannerDataEvent (data: ScanDataList): Emit data from a scanner subscription.

  • errorEvent (reqId: int, errorCode: int, errorString: str, contract: Contract): Emits the reqId/orderId and TWS error code and string (see https://interactivebrokers.github.io/tws-api/message_codes.html) together with the contract the error applies to (or None if no contract applies).

  • timeoutEvent (idlePeriod: float): Is emitted if no data is received for longer than the timeout period specified with setTimeout(). The value emitted is the period in seconds since the last update.

Note that it is not advisable to place new requests inside an event handler as it may lead to too much recursion.

Client

Socket client for communicating with Interactive Brokers.

class ib_insync.client.Client(wrapper)[source]

Replacement for ibapi.client.EClient that uses asyncio.

The client is fully asynchronous and has its own event-driven networking code that replaces the networking code of the standard EClient. It also replaces the infinite loop of EClient.run() with the asyncio event loop. It can be used as a drop-in replacement for the standard EClient as provided by IBAPI.

Compared to the standard EClient this client has the following additional features:

  • client.connect() will block until the client is ready to serve requests; It is not necessary to wait for nextValidId to start requests as the client has already done that. The reqId is directly available with getReqId().

  • client.connectAsync() is a coroutine for connecting asynchronously.

  • When blocking, client.connect() can be made to time out with the timeout parameter (default 2 seconds).

  • Optional wrapper.priceSizeTick(reqId, tickType, price, size) that combines price and size instead of the two wrapper methods priceTick and sizeTick.

  • Automatic request throttling.

  • Optional wrapper.tcpDataArrived() method; If the wrapper has this method it is invoked directly after a network packet has arrived. A possible use is to timestamp all data in the packet with the exact same time.

  • Optional wrapper.tcpDataProcessed() method; If the wrapper has this method it is invoked after the network packet’s data has been handled. A possible use is to write or evaluate the newly arrived data in one batch instead of item by item.

MaxRequests

Throttle the number of requests to MaxRequests per RequestsInterval seconds. Set to 0 to disable throttling.

Contract

Financial instrument types used by Interactive Brokers.

class ib_insync.contract.Contract(secType='', conId=0, symbol='', lastTradeDateOrContractMonth='', strike=0.0, right='', multiplier='', exchange='', primaryExchange='', currency='', localSymbol='', tradingClass='', includeExpired=False, secIdType='', secId='', comboLegsDescrip='', comboLegs=<factory>, deltaNeutralContract=None)[source]

Contract(**kwargs) can create any contract using keyword arguments. To simplify working with contracts, there are also more specialized contracts that take optional positional arguments. Some examples:

Contract(conId=270639)
Stock('AMD', 'SMART', 'USD')
Stock('INTC', 'SMART', 'USD', primaryExchange='NASDAQ')
Forex('EURUSD')
CFD('IBUS30')
Future('ES', '20180921', 'GLOBEX')
Option('SPY', '20170721', 240, 'C', 'SMART')
Bond(secIdType='ISIN', secId='US03076KAA60')
Parameters
  • conId (int) – The unique IB contract identifier.

  • symbol (str) – The contract (or its underlying) symbol.

  • secType (str) –

    The security type:

    • ’STK’ = Stock (or ETF)

    • ’OPT’ = Option

    • ’FUT’ = Future

    • ’IND’ = Index

    • ’FOP’ = Futures option

    • ’CASH’ = Forex pair

    • ’CFD’ = CFD

    • ’BAG’ = Combo

    • ’WAR’ = Warrant

    • ’BOND’= Bond

    • ’CMDTY’= Commodity

    • ’NEWS’ = News

    • ’FUND’= Mutual fund

  • lastTradeDateOrContractMonth (str) – The contract’s last trading day or contract month (for Options and Futures). Strings with format YYYYMM will be interpreted as the Contract Month whereas YYYYMMDD will be interpreted as Last Trading Day.

  • strike (float) – The option’s strike price.

  • right (str) – Put or Call. Valid values are ‘P’, ‘PUT’, ‘C’, ‘CALL’, or ‘’ for non-options.

  • multiplier (str) – he instrument’s multiplier (i.e. options, futures).

  • exchange (str) – The destination exchange.

  • currency (str) – The underlying’s currency.

  • localSymbol (str) – The contract’s symbol within its primary exchange. For options, this will be the OCC symbol.

  • primaryExchange (str) – The contract’s primary exchange. For smart routed contracts, used to define contract in case of ambiguity. Should be defined as native exchange of contract, e.g. ISLAND for MSFT. For exchanges which contain a period in name, will only be part of exchange name prior to period, i.e. ENEXT for ENEXT.BE.

  • tradingClass (str) – The trading class name for this contract. Available in TWS contract description window as well. For example, GBL Dec ‘13 future’s trading class is “FGBL”.

  • includeExpired (bool) – If set to true, contract details requests and historical data queries can be performed pertaining to expired futures contracts. Expired options or other instrument types are not available.

  • secIdType (str) –

    Security identifier type. Examples for Apple:

    • secIdType=’ISIN’, secId=’US0378331005’

    • secIdType=’CUSIP’, secId=‘037833100’

  • secId (str) – Security identifier.

  • comboLegsDescription (str) – Description of the combo legs.

  • comboLegs (List[ComboLeg]) – The legs of a combined contract definition.

  • deltaNeutralContract (DeltaNeutralContract) – Delta and underlying price for Delta-Neutral combo orders.

Current market data such as bid, ask, last price, etc. for a contract.

Streaming level-1 ticks of type TickData are stored in the ticks list.

Streaming level-2 ticks of type MktDepthData are stored in the domTicks list. The order book (DOM) is available as lists of DOMLevel in domBids and domAsks.

Streaming tick-by-tick ticks are stored in tickByTicks.

For options the OptionComputation values for the bid, ask, resp. last price are stored in the bidGreeks, askGreeks resp. lastGreeks attributes. There is also modelGreeks that conveys the greeks as calculated by Interactive Brokers’ option model.

Watchdog

class ib_insync.ibcontroller.Watchdog(controller, ib, host='127.0.0.1', port=7497, clientId=1, connectTimeout=2, appStartupTime=30, appTimeout=20, retryDelay=2, readonly=False)[source]

Start, connect and watch over the TWS or gateway app and try to keep it up and running. It is intended to be used in an event-driven application that properly initializes itself upon (re-)connect.

It is not intended to be used in a notebook or in imperative-style code. Do not expect Watchdog to magically shield you from reality. Do not use Watchdog unless you understand what it does and doesn’t do.

Parameters
  • controller (Union[IBC, IBController]) – (required) IBC or IBController instance.

  • ib (IB) – (required) IB instance to be used. Do no connect this instance as Watchdog takes care of that.

  • host (str) – Used for connecting IB instance.

  • port (int) – Used for connecting IB instance.

  • clientId (int) – Used for connecting IB instance.

  • connectTimeout (float) – Used for connecting IB instance.

  • readonly (bool) – Used for connecting IB instance.

  • appStartupTime (float) – Time (in seconds) that the app is given to start up. Make sure that it is given ample time.

  • appTimeout (float) – Timeout (in seconds) for network traffic idle time.

  • retryDelay (float) – Time (in seconds) to restart app after a previous failure.

The idea is to wait until there is no traffic coming from the app for a certain amount of time (the appTimeout parameter). This triggers a historical request to be placed just to see if the app is still alive and well. If yes, then continue, if no then restart the whole app and reconnect. Restarting will also occur directly on errors 1100 and 100.

Example usage:

def onConnected():
    print(ib.accountValues())

ibc = IBC(974, gateway=True, tradingMode='paper')
ib = IB()
ib.connectedEvent += onConnected
watchdog = Watchdog(ibc, ib, port=4002)
watchdog.start()
ib.run()
Events:
events = ['startingEvent', 'startedEvent', 'stoppingEvent', 'stoppedEvent', 'softTimeoutEvent', 'hardTimeoutEvent']
