  1. Hi,
    I just cracked open IB's DDE. Anyone plug conditional orders into it? I would love to figure out how to make a trade on security if another hits a specific price.

  3. thanks steve, but i need to automate. what i reall want to do is have a conditional order that triggers another set of "if-filled" conditionals.

    There is a Conditional Order page on the sample spreadsheet.
    Check the Interactive Tour page which deals with Conditional orders, there is an if filled example there...hope this helps.
