StrategyDesk for IB ?

Discussion in 'Automated Trading' started by mechinvestor, Dec 12, 2010.

  1. Does anyone know if there is a way to use StrategyDesk and have it execute the trade through IB instead of TDA ? I like StrategyDesk because it is easy to use and test, but I hate the TDA commission fee. Thanks.

    StrategyDesk can send email trade alerts.

    Maybe you could program the MS Outlook email program (or some other email program) to relay StrategyDesk trade alerts to IB for the trade.

    Your trade size must be low. TDA actually can be a lower cost broker, as there are no data charges for the trading platform, and depending on trade size, commissions can be less than IB.
