    Hi,

    When I place an stock order via the Esignal Interactive process to the IB TWS, I have to manuall place the symbol into the TWS Main front screen so I can monitor the $$ and order executions. In many case I do not have the symbols loaded as I dont have a pre set stock symbol list, as I chase news etc.

    Is the any way TWS will put the Symbol in automatically into TWS screen when the order is place via Esignal process.

    Hey i was wondering how it feels with IB integrated with ESIGNAL. Is it good?

    Yes Very, apart from the hassle of manual symbol load into TWS front screen. Unless I have got it wrong and it can be done, hence my question !!!

    Ask your question at IB'S message board someone from the company usually answers questions.
     
  5. I think it is good to ask here. Esignal reps often respond on ET

    Do you still need to have TWS open?

    Then I do not see theadvantage to trade thru eSignal. We can trade thru QuoteTracker too but I have not tried , so do not know the advantage either.
