Ok... I've been doing some research trying to figure out the best solution for my situation... Currently i'm trading with Interactive brokers.. I trade mainly options.. I have bought Hoadleys excel fiancial add in and started messing around with it.. I've got some experience with programming but less and less as you go down the abstraction level. Meaning i know web application languages... I've taking a class in visual basic and didn't complete it.. And i'm not scared to dig in and learn new things... That being said I've been thinking about scraping bid ask last and volume for options of stocks that i follow and insert them into a db.. Does anyone have experience with this?
