Hi Community, I am an expert options trader with only basic programming experience (in VBA). I want to build simple code for IB TWS where I can program in the next trade to execute. I am not looking for a whole decision tree that's automated, I myself can type in the code for what I want the next trade to look like. As I get more comfortable I could then further engineer it. I'm hoping for code that can: When X stock hits $X price, enter a combination options order... Combination order is buy/sell X, Y, Z combination of strike prices... The limit price of this combination order is -> start at ask and move quickly down for sell order or start at bid and move swiftly up for buy orders, until order filled or cancelled Log that order was filled I don't know anything about libraries or other things people are talking about on here but I can learn if need be. I would like to ask community: Is Python the easiest language to build this program in? Is there any publicly available free code that can do numbers 1 to 4 above - code that I can just play with? Is there anything else I should know? Thanks!
