There are lots of automated options trading software but most if not all are designed for market making and most are not cheap. I've known people who have used and like ProOpticus . Metro & Freeway from OptionsCity/Vela is quickly becoming a very popular solution. Both of these are >$1000 month though I believe. I gather ORC (www.itiviti.com/orc) is one of the very best but think it comes with a 5 figure a month price tag! You could also program this up in TTs ADL easily as well but you would be reinventing the wheel. Probably not the answers you were looking for.

Trying to find a broker that allows/does automated strategies for index options. Only one i ever see mentioned is interactive brokers and am wondering if anyone has used them or has another broker that they would recommend.

By automated, even if a certain event happens it'll automatically enter trade for you?

I started writing a program to do this a few years ago using various broker APIs (like etrade and ally). But it was going to be a lot of work and I lost interest... definitely interested if anything good comes up. Maybe I should try to make my own again

I'm sure you could have this developed for you fairly easily.
