    Sending a trade signal every 5 seconds

    Dear all,

    Is it possible to send a trading signal every 5 seconds to IB, as part of a automated trading strategy? If so, do you have any examples to provide?
    Thank you very much.

    Best,
    N.Lapo

    N.Lapo, thanks for the post, generally that would be possible, either based on a 5 second chart or by running a strictly time based timer signal via a script for example. I'm just not sure I understand what you want to create here, so would be helpful if you could clarify a bit more for us. Thanks.

      Hello,

      Thanks for the reply.
      The idea is simply to send every x seconds a buy or sell signal between let's say 8:00:00 and 8:00:30 (8am and 30 secs).

        Thanks, yes generally that would be feasible. However if you work based on the bars (counting for example 1 second bars, or acting on a new 5 second bar) you would need to keep in mind that a trade has to happen in our event based framework to create new bars if time conditions warrant so. So even if time conditons would call for a new bar to be created, when no tick is seen then NT would not create a new bar for you. If you seek to strictly work on a time based event then a timer could be helping here.

          Hello,

          Thanks for the information.
          Additional question: is there a way to create a 5sec chart?

            N.Lapo, yes that would be possible if you have access to tick data from your broker / technology provider connected in NT. You can for example just type 5S on your chart to change to a 5 second chart.
