Excel Order Entry "platform"...

Discussion in 'Trading Software' started by risktaker, Jul 16, 2009.

  1. Is anybody using excel to place orders manually?
    For example, click on a button in excel to transmit/cancel an order? Similar to IB's TWS but all within excel?

    TWS has an Excel API demo spreadsheet with order submission samples.

    I have not used Excel for trading since 1998. Any reason why you would prefer it?
  3. The ability to customize the platform in more ways than are currently available in TWS.
  4. There is a good thread on "Excel Automation" under the Automation section of the forums - just search it.
