I need to automate some orders in Excel in what in theory should be a pretty simple project: 1) Using IQFeed (and IQLink) I need to pull down symbol history (Close) for X days back as well as the Last price to perform a few calculations. 2) Once my condition is True, I need to send in two market orders via FIX. I'm not planning on integrating any check for fills, position status etc so this should also be pretty simple. Now for 1), would I need to do something in VBA, right? Does anyone have any pointers to where I could learn more about how to do this? For 2), I'm guessing I need to buy some sort of add-in for Excel with FIX-support. I've emailed macd.com regarding their add on XLFiX, are there any other FIX add-ins for Excel available? Any help, pointers etc is very welcome. I might also be willing to consider paying for someone to finish this for me (through rentacoder for instance).
