Simple automated trading software for IB?

  1. Hello all -

    I'm a newer trader using IB and eSignal.

    Does anyone have a recommendation for an easy software that will let me prepare a group of trades with brackets before the day begins?

    I know the execution prices. I would like to prepare 10-20 trades with profit/stop brackets I could execute repeatedly through the day.

    I could actually send the trades manually, and more than once in order to build positions. I'm just looking for something where I could prepare my trades ahead of time and easily send to IB.

    Thanks - the members of this website are an incredible resource.

    Take a look at the Excel DDE info in the TWS user guide on the IB website. It sounds like just what you are looking for.
  3. Thanks Aaron - will take a look at it.

    ButtonTrader is a nice tool, and would probably do the trick for you once you climb it's learning curve.

  5. I like Bracket Trader
  6. Simple automated trading software for everyone. Any ideas?
  7. eSignal (feed) and IB (broker) are exactly my setup and I use Stock Watch Pro for automated trading, it's very easy to use for both novice and seasoned traders alike.
