Important note - Course prerequisites:

Please note that this course requires basic python proficiency. At the minimum, you should be comfortable with:

  • basic python data types and format
  • basic python data structures such as list, dictionary, tuple etc.
  • how to create python functions
  • how to implement loops in python
  • installing and importing libraries 

Basic python proficiency is mandatory because Interactive Broker API's python client uses advanced OOP and asynchronous programming concepts. While, I have devoted an entire section explaining these concepts, students with no python knowledge will really struggle to follow along.

  • Traders looking to automate their strategies on Interactive Broker's platform
