CQG OTTO and automated trading

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by User50000, Oct 29, 2003.

  1. I have a few questions regarding CQG's OTTO program and I would appreciate it if you could share your experiences and opinions regarding the software. In addition...

    1) Can you trade stocks (not just futures) with this software?

    2) I believe OTTO can be used to set up an automated trading system based on charts, indicators, etc. within CQG. Is this true?

    3) Also, does anyone use OTTO to connect through Interactive Brokers? (the CQG webpage says that you can connect to the broker of your choice)

    4) If you looked at or tried OTTO for automated trading but didn't like it, could you recommend another piece of software?

    There is a powerpoint presentation on the page of CQG.

    1) do not know
    2) The presentation does not say so.
    3) ?? There is only one broker mentioned, and it is not IB.
    4) see 2)

    If you are looking into another frontend for IB have a look at the freelance section on the IB pages.

    If you want automated trading search the IB discussion forums. I think Tradestation can be set up to do so, Wealth Lab v3 also. There may be some more tools.
