    Hi all,

    I have developped some strategies on Excel and would like to link Excel with IB in a full automatic environment.

    Example : as soon as the cell C4 on Excel becomes "1", a sell order for X contracts on NQ is automaticly sent to IB.

    Which software would be the best?

    Many thanks for your help :)

  2. Excel with IB DDE? :confused:

    yes, it does the job but heavy :(

    and does not work with vista

    in any case, many thanks for your help :)

    Excel has never come to the forefront as a trading enviro...
  5. DDE works great in Vista. I am using vista 64 bit with Office 2007, and no problems whatsoever
