I've posted this question publically, since I thought many would be interested in the response, given all of the recent threads on automation. Hi def, I've been working with automating my Tradestation orders via the DDE link to my IB account. I was disappointed to learn from online help at the IB site that I cannot do this with my futures account, only stocks. Is this something that may be changed in the future? I really like the capabilities, but for many reasons outlined in other threads, I'm pretty much a futures-only trader. Thanks in advance for any insight on this!
