    I am used to draw trendlines in Tradestation charts and use those as automated buy and sell orders.
    Does Interactive Brockers (or other broker please suggest one) have a similar feature?

  2. Saat, do you draw the trendlines manually or are the lines drawn automatically?

    IB charting is rudimentary. They have a java charting module, you have to draw the lines manually.

    Did you look into whether you can trade with IB from your Trade station Platform?
  3. To do this with IB you will have to use a 3rd party software such as Mulitcharts or Ninjatrader.
