    Hi,

    I understand IRESS is able to send live data to excel.

    Is IRESS able to receive buy/sell signals back from Excel, or even another program?

    If I was looking to set up a live automated system would it be possible through IRESS and Excel?

    Cheers

    Yes, it could be set up, using macros (excel or AHK for example) which constantly read the data, wait for a buy signal then transmit it to Iress.

    It's not a very neat way of automating a system (having attempted something similar). Consider other methods with less steps and less possibility of error. Leaving something like that unattended could be costly.
