Gathering Info on auto control of IB bracket order.

  1. Hi,

    Can anyone let me know if there is any DLL software out there that can do what I have in mind here.

    The software would be sending order information to IB (Interactive Brokers) from either MultiCharts EL code or from MS-Access VBA code via DLL calls.

    1/ Send an order down to IB that will create a bracket order on their system. MS-Access will feed the parameters for the bracket. It would be adjustable trailing stop just in case my computers go down. I am assuming that IB's TWS would show the order once it is out there.

    2/ Send adjustments to the target and trail portion of that bracket most likely from MultiCharts EL code but if that is not possible it can be from MS-Access which is picking up parameters from MultiCharts via global variables. Again I am assuming that IB's TWS would be immediately reflecting the adjustments.

    Thats it. Clear as mud.
