Trading CFDs via API

  1. Hi folks, anyone here know if it is possible to trade CFDs via IB API? I've been searching for a week for posts and threads and docco... and haven't come with much.

    Many thanks in advance

  2. I don't know if you can use the API, but I think the only CFDs offered by IB are traded on the ASX. Is this what you want? Liquidity might be an issue.
  3. Thank you for the reply.

    Yes I am aware that it's only ASX CFDs, which is OK with me. I have a couple of index trading systems that I want to trade via CFDs (my other systems are equities only... for now :)

    ASX CFDs for indecies would be fine for now..
