I really appreciate the support of this community and also the work of Daniel behind backtrader. I have extended and created my own framework based on backtrader, there is nothing like this out there.
So your help is needed again, but in this case testing this version of the IB Store (Broker and DataFeed) using async integration with Interactive Brokers through ib_insync. I believe that this feature is one of the most recurrent improvement request for backtrader (and also a need for myself).
The repo is here: https://github.com/ultra1971/backtrader_ib_insync
Remember this an alpha+ version but fully working in my dev environment.
During the stress testing that I ran with the tick price implementation, an average of 3 orders per second were reached, very promising. The connection stability is another improvement, this means no more hangs and this is something that you're looking for in any algotrading platform.
You can find most of the original IB Store logic are there, cover most of the functionality, but happy to complete this with your support.
A special thanks to the ib_insync community and of course to Ewald for keep this project active.
Finally, this is the best way that I find to give you back my appreciation, thanks.
