    Can anyone recommend a software tool that will insert real time quotes into an Excel spreadsheet using the interactive brokers feed?

    My idea would be to use the bid ask info to program some real-time charts I need.

    thank you

  3. I know nothing about api and programming but awhile back for the heck of it I downloaded the sample from IB to play around with and it was fairly easy to get quotes with it.

    thanks a lot for your answers
  5. Sierrachart has the capacity to put IB quotes directly into Excel and make charts as well. It might be worth looking at depending on what you want to do.

    Do you guys know if there are any costs associated with the IB API?

    as far as populating Excel with data via the API, there is no cost. dunno if there are other cost-based options available.


    take care :)
