For code/output blocks: Use ``` (aka backtick or grave accent) in a single line before and after the block. See:

module 'backtrader.stores' has no attribute 'IBStore'

  • ibpy2 is installed and it can import.

    But when I test this code:

    import ib
    import backtrader as bt
    store = bt.stores.IBStore(port=7497)'

    I get the error:

    AttributeError: module 'backtrader.stores' has no attribute 'IBStore'

    Can someone help me?

  • You didnt import the module ibstore. Try e.g.

    import backtrader.stores.ibstore as ibstore
    store = ibstore.IBStore(port=7497)

  • Thx@vbs, I tried it but got the same error.

    AttributeError: module 'backtrader.stores.ibstore' has no attribute 'IBStore'

  • @vbs said in module 'backtrader.stores' has no attribute 'IBStore':

    import backtrader.stores.ibstore

    Hm please open a python shell and do this:

    import backtrader.stores.ibstore

    and then


    and post the output.

  • python shell output

    >>> import backtrader.stores.ibstore
    >>> dir(backtrader.stores.ibstore)
    ['AutoDict', 'Contract', 'IBStore', 'MetaParams', 'MetaSingleton', 'Position', 'RTVolume', 'TimeFrame', 'UTC', '__builtins__', '__cached__', '__doc__', '__file__', '__loader__', '__name__', '__package__', '__spec__', '_ts2dt', 'absolute_import', 'bstr', 'bytes', 'collections', 'copy', 'date', 'datetime', 'division', 'ibopt', 'ibregister', 'inspect', 'itertools', 'long', 'print_function', 'queue', 'random', 'threading', 'time', 'timedelta', 'unicode_literals', 'with_metaclass']

  • IBStore is clearly in there, I can see it :P

    And you are sure that this does not work now? Well, it has to work

    store = backtrader.stores.ibstore.IBStore(port=7497)

  • I think I found the problem, but I don't know how to fix it.
    When I used the python shell, it didn't report an error.
    But when I use python script, it gives an error.

    AttributeError: module 'backtrader.stores' has no attribute 'ibstore'

  • Finally, I found the problem and solved it.
    My file name is, which is the same as the module name of ibpy.
    Anyway, thank you all.
