Hi Thomas,
if you want to trade with IB and you want to use a chart for trading, Level2 or use your own trading strategy you can give TradeProject @ www.TradeProject.de a try. It is developed to do that - and it is free.

There are a few API that claim to bridge TS between IB. Try this

http://www.tradebullet.com/products/tradebullet/

I've never used any of them so make your own judgement.
