For anyone looking to write automated traders using javascript with node.js, I maintain a library which should simply the task of connecting to the various exchanges, entering orders, and capturing market data.

https://github.com/bitfloor/trader.nodejs

The library is in the very early phases and the APIs are still under development but the README should point you in the right direction. Feel free to file github issues for features you would like to see and any problems you encounter.

There is also a command line order entry utility (currently for bitfloor only, but it will work for mtgox soon). The command line utility allows basic order entry commands without needing a web interface. The idea is for it to aid in testing when you are developing your trading bot.

Writing traders with javascript and node.js is easy and fun! Give it a try.

Looks nice! I wrote some early Java code for the mtgox json API, since I'm also interested in tradebots. But the problem is the delay in the mtgox json api, so my concern is, that a bot would simply react much too late to be efficient?

I can't comment on the MtGox API speed but I do know that there are many bots on the various exchanges so they do manage to cope somehow Smiley Some algorithms don't require high speed execution.

Thanks for your reply! Maybe the 10s delay is not really an issue and I should continue work on the Java API. Thanks for the encouragement!

MtGox order entry support has been added. You can now trade using a common interface on both Bitfloor and MtGox.

Last update a year ago. Is this project abandoned?
