    Thanks again. This is something that is custom so I will inquire to see if they know IB's API and want a custom job.

    You might want to consider taking a step back and write down your requirements at a higher level without including the tech that can solve it. Then, evaluate the various technologies (i.e. python, excel, C#) that could solve the problem. You still might end up wanting to have the solution in excel but it will give you a good basis for knowing you likely made the right decision.

    you seem to have a lot of experience based on your posts..so why do you need market scanners and complicated programming if the same results..or not better..can be achieved by concentrating on a single market..or a very small number of trading instruments?

    You need to see the whole marketplace when you are doing different types of arbitrage.

    I'd never do well looking at one market (not my thing)

    Thanks for that. I now see that the API comes with a NewTwsDde spreadsheet.

    Would you know what this new release offers on top of the "standard" TwsDde?
