New to the community here.
I am looking to code a trading bot to trade stocks.
I'm very new to algorithmic trading, I have some coding experience from highschool and university (excel VBA) and I want to start trading as a way to grow my money. I also enjoy programming and my neighbor claims he makes good money trading forex using an algorithm, so I thought if he could do it, so can I.
I want to use interactive brokers because of their low commissions and python because of it's wide application (in other things), however I've read getting interactive broker to work with python is difficult. What are some of the other brokers that are comparable/better than IBKR for algotrading?
Is trying to use python the wrong approach or should I just be open to using other languages?
I want to trade stocks because of all the instruments out there, I know the most about stocks. I'll be coming back to this forum so I appreciate any and all help I can get!
