Front-end for TWS

Can anyone recommend a good front-end for TWS with the following features:

- Displays all open positions and entry prices

- Displays all closed positions, entry prices, exit prices and realised P/L

- Has customisable one click settings to
  • open new long position
  • open new short position
  • close part
  • close all
  • close and reverse all.

Thanks.

Excel can do this and IB even provide a sample spreadsheet to do it but it would need some modification.

Excel will do it in realtime and all you need to do is tick the "Enable DDE Clients" which is found under "Configure/ API".

I did some work with TWSDDE though Paul and I wouldn't describe it as fun and quick compared with the dedicated clients.

Another one: Bracket Trader

although Sierra Chart is my personal favourite.
