I recently saw a product called xxxx xxxx,

This company provides a direct link to all the major exchange traded derivatives through one of the recognised ISV's. (pats)

Big Deal - i hear you say

Well here is the clever part, they will take any system for trading that you might currently employ and then, for a reasonable fee, will convert this into a program that transacts directly with the ISV's exchange interfaces for total automation.

They will also optimise and backtest any sytem that you have to produce the program that best fits your trading style.

It does, however, require you to open a trading account with one of their recognised brokers that house the strategy runner servers.

Take a look yourselves

Sure fire way to find out if there's a system out there that works. They should be paying you!

Hi Skim

Yeah I thought so......so the only way to beat an advert is to post a link for a "rival" package that is both free and easy to use - with great back-up support :D

Hi DanielLambert.

I'm probably not the best person to ask, but hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

What feeds do you get from IB?
I get the Eurostoxx50 feed for $8 a month
I also get ACE free which covers these http://www.interactivebrokers.com/cgi-pub/exchange_display.pl?file=ACE.html
Not sure what you pay for the FTSE
If u trade US , did you have to sign US tax forms?
Yes, you have to fill in the US tax forms. If your living in the UK, there is only one that you need to fill in - can't remember which one it is now.
sorry to bombard u with questions but I am scaling the steep learning curve at the moment!!!
Bombard away - We all have to start somewhere, and IB is an absolute terror to get to grips with.

If your going to be trading US stocks, then IB won't do back-data, which means you have to have your computer constantly running the IB software. I would recommend you use www.Mytrack.com for any US share trading.
You will still have to pay the $10 to IB (which you get back if your commissions are greater than $30 a month).

HTH :)
