IB and Excel

Discussion in 'Retail Brokers' started by spreadem, May 19, 2003.

  1. I am interested in using IB with the market feed for futures and I need to know if IB's TWS allows for a dde link from TWS into Excel.

    Does the realtime data feed from IB compare with that of other quality data providers when it come to futures and stock data in terms of speed and reliability.

    Can anyone help ?

    Thanks in advance.
     
  2. yes: configure, api , enable dde clients

    IB feed is very fast, if not the fastest
     
  3. Thanks.
