Loading orders from Excel into Interactive Brokers Trader Workstation

  1. Hello,

    Does anybody know if it is possible to load into Interactive Brokers Trader Workstation orders from an Excel file? For example if I have 50 orders arranged in the excel, it would be very easy and useful to load the file and after that submit all of them at the same time without entering the orders one by one in to the TWS.

    Thank you
  2. Pretty strange that nobody does that.
  3. Download & install the API if you haven't already. Then enable your TWS for DDE connection and use excel files in C:\Jts\Excel
  4. TWS basket trader will take .csv file and submit the orders if properly formatted.
  5. It worked perfectly with basket trader.
    Thank you guys.
