IB and trade mangement

Any hint (software ?) as how to improve trade management wih IB.

I mean a software that takes care of placing brackets and several target objectives with IB (not keeping the orders in the Pc but in the broker) and changing them as predefined.

Thanks in advance.

Not free but worth every Euro. You can have Ninja Like ATM, multiple entries,exits etc.

I looked at Bracket Trader but it does not pre-attach closing orders to opening orders.

@eloso, why not NT, as in your profile, it looks like you already use it ?
With an ATM strategy, and IB, the orders are not staying on your machine, there are on the IB servers, and the targets/stops, if they are updated, are updated on IB servers too.
I've tested the other software, buttontrader and bracketrader, and found NT was better for this.
