Hi, I am currently using Interactive Brokers to sell naked options on futures and I'm looking to automate it.

Are there any platforms that support this besides IB?

Please only answer with platforms that can do this, I already know the risks involved.

@thejourney Interactive Brokers is a broker not a platform! When you say Interactive Brokers do you really mean their 'Trader Workstation' platform?

To answer your question, Trading Technologies can definitely automate almost anything in the Futures and Futures Options space. Trading Technologies is also broker agnostic, so you can use it with almost any broker, including Interactive Brokers I believe. It's not free though.

Tradestation and Ninja Trader both have automation, which I know you can use for Stocks and Futures, but not sure about Options, but I would assume so. While Tradestation do have their own brokerage business you can use it with other brokers, although it's only free to Tradestation brokerage clients. Ninja Trader used to be broker agnostic, and if you have an old license it may still be, but I believe new clients have to also use Ninja Trader brokerage.

Others you might look at include Sierra Chart, and MetaTrader but I know very little about both.

Also 'Think or Swim' are a big options broker, and have heard their platform is great for options. Not sure how much you can automate with them though.
