Only desktop apps for automated trades on major broker platforms?

  1. Anyone know if you're limited to desktop apps if you want to execute automated trades (based on scripts) on...

    - ThinkoOrSwim
    - Tradestation
    - IB


    Do any of these platforms let you automate orders from scripts through their web/mobile platforms?

  2. IB has a REST API which they had to create for tradingivew integration.

  3. Gotcha. Thanks for the input.

    So it sounds like what you're saying is that you can do it on IB, but you need to integrate with TradingView first?

    Also, if this is the case, do you need to pay for a premium TradingView account to integrate into IB and actually execute trades?

    IB TradingView intergration is still in beta.

  5. No you can supposedly use the REST API directly, I haven't tried it though.

    If you're on a PC and would like a simple API that is broker-independent and can work with IB, TDA, Fidelity, and a few other brokers for trading (and with a lot of quote sources for market data) - drop me a PM.
