I need someone familiar with Interactive Brokers API DDE application.
I need programing to? build ascii files from the IB data feed that I can access with a realtime analysis program. I will have to be able to specify multuple symbols in the time periods of my choice and utilize IB's back data to start each file. It doesn't matter if this is done through Excel or a different stand alone program.
I don't claim expertise in this area, but it's my opinion that Excel would be the logical platform for this project. It can be the front end for data reqests, and? viewing the produced csv(ascii) files.
The required fields for each record are: date, time, open, high, low, close and volume.
I'm sure I am omitting important details as this is my first project on this site. I would like the document the final project requirements after discussion with the programmer.
