I have been trying to build an automated trading app using the Etrade API for 9 months.

I am a professional software developer but I've had to hire 2 sub contractors to get past the Ouath authentication (because the documentation is gibberish to me). That part only works partially.

The automated trading part is simple compared to this getting the authentication handshake to work correctly..

I work in VB .Net and there are no working examples in that language (or really any language).

So if you ever get anything working, post it in as many places as you can so others can benefit.

krandor: were you able to devise a way to obtain the "verifier" string (what you pass to GetAccessToken) programmatically?

Sorry for typos. I meant to write "The TradeKing API also _uses_ oauth, and _there_ are some code examples...."
