Bridging solution for MT4 EAs & Indicators to executes trades on Interactive Brokers

I want to use MT4 experts (or indicators) to execute trades on Interactive Brokers. MT4 brokers
use large spreads and I want to execute trades based on Interactive Brokers' narrow spreads. How to achieve this?

Should I use EA/indicators to generate results in Excel first and use API Excel DDE link to execute trades on IB?

I am told IB Excel DDE link is an outdated/obsolete facility as it does not support Excel Real-time Data (RTD) function that was introduced in 2003. IB has not set up RTD server to support this Excel functionality.

So is there any other MT4 - IB API bridging solution available which can help me achieve this goal of using MT4 EAs and Indicatotrs to trade on IB?
