    I was thinking of starting to use Interactive Broker's excel API software, and I was wondering if anybody knows if its possible to setup your own automated trading strategy with it without disclosing to Interactive Brokers what that strategy is? That is to keep it secret from them while still using the software? If so how would you do this?

  2. None of your code is exposed to IB, only the trades you make .
  3. Plus the data you request from them (what instrument, over what time, etc.)

    IB does not get to see your software code. Whether it is in a spreadsheet, in Java, Python, or any other supported language.
