What Do I Need?

  1. I know nothing about programming but think I could get a grip on easylanguage or something similiar. I want to set up an automated system that gets one signal from an indicator on a 5 minute ES chart and two signals from a 1min ES chart, one from an indicator and one from volume. So basically three simple inputs would dictate the entry and one more signal from the 5 min. indicator would dictate the exit. Is there some thirdparty software using IB data on which I could set this up?

    Probably there are several. I looked at multicharts from tssupport.com recently. It did not do volume bars or tick bars so I bypassed it. It does work with a variety of data sources and I'm pretty sure IB would be in the mix.
