simple robust 3rd party API to trade IB?

    I have a simple strategy that I want to automate to trade on IB. There are a few systems that cost couple thousands dollars, but my need is much simpler, no need for chart or backtesting. Just process some incoming data at low frequency, a few minutes, and put in the order.

    I checked out ActiveTick, $20 a month, but it does not seem to do anything. And does not look like connecting to IB, only TDAmeritrade. Maybe I am wrong. Maybe they are are all about data feed.

    Can any one help me recommend some software I can program a couple hundred lines of strategy, and auto-tarde on IB ?

    Thanks a lot.

  2. i'm confused with what your asking.. you have a platform and code.. now your looking for an API? interactive brokers provides an API>.. explain better
    Works with IB. Can either be purchased outright, or has a monthly cost. Uses C#. You can use IB's data feed, or an alternative.

    To Caveman: by API, I mean 3rd party software that provides automated trading better than IB TWS.
