Running Algo Trading System

Different Types of Deployments,

  1. Cloud Deployment

    The way of cloud deployment The server side has been deployed to the cloud. The user does not need to do anything.

  2. Local method with Docker deployment

    • Install Docker

      • Please download and install the corresponding Docker version according to the operating system:
    • Run Docker

      docker run -it --net="host" apifinyalgo/algo-sdk:1.2.12
      Note: Different operating systems may require you to run the program with sudo. Then you can start the ccc_control_server. command: ccc_control_server /data/cc/control_server_cfg.json (You can check whether the program starts successfully through the ps -aux|grep ccc_control_server command. If the startup fails, it is also caused by the port conflict of bind. You can use the vi command to modify the port in the /data/cc/control_server_cfg.json* file, then restart and try to start)

  3. Local method with SDK

    We need to download and unzip our Package to run locally. The required local operating system must be Ubuntu 20.04 version.
