Example of Paper and Live trading through IB with current github Brokerage/InteractiveBroker

Dear All,
is there an "clonable" example demonstrating paper trading through IB and live trading through IB, using a simplistic algo (mov.average cross over for example) ? I see some classes on Github but no documentation or example on such.
best,

Hey Florent, paper trading is live for subscribers only at the moment :) Using it deploys a dedicated VPS server for your algorithm so we ask people subscribe to help cover costs.

Once we've burnt in the paper trading for a couple more weeks we'll release the full IB live trading implementation which will use the same interface through QC. Most of the IB code is sitting on a branch in Github - there's just a few finishing touches and it will be ready.

Please check out the QCU "Live Feature Demonstration" algorithm (under the university tab). This has a bunch of live-only feature demonstrations - including, live BTC data, SMS, email and web notifications, and run-time statistics.

Excellent news. So your business model is to provide dedicated VPS to subscribers to roll-out paper and live trading, keeping part of bridge as proprietary, or is this temporary ?

Correct - we'll provide all the code open source so you can deploy it from your home PC with a console CLI; but by using QC you'll get our charting GUI and a NYC based server to run your strategy. Most traders get a live VPS eventually anyway so it seems like a good fit :)

The cloud components (cloud messaging, compiler, hadoop system) will be kept proprietary, but they are not much use to individuals anyway as maintaining your own cloud would be very expensive. By leaving this for QC, we can effectively cost-share infrastructure with all the other quants.

Soon we'll roll out optimization which when cost shared among the community is much more powerful than any one person can achieve. It will be charged like AWS/EC2 - but subscribers will get some credit automatically :)
