hello,

i'm really new to backtesting, and read about mc just recently.

i want to learn easylang, but the 30 days is not enough
is there a free option to practice backtest on historical data, and learn to programm with easylang ?

in addition, i saw that mc is also an actual trading platform.
where can i see the commission fees (buy, sell, options etc.) ?

thanks!

This would be between you and your broker, and have nothing to do with MultiCharts outside of assuring that MultiCharts supports the brokerage connection.

elibelly - I agree that 30 days is not enough time, so I bought Multicharts. Since then, I have noticed that Open ECry will provide OEC Trader for free. OEC Trader supports C# and EasyLanguage programming. You could look on their site here. You could also check out the Open ECry forum on nexusfi.com (formerly BMT) here. It appears that they also provide a free practice account for simulated trading.

I can confirm OEC's free sim account. So long as one has at least $5,000, and maintains that, it's available... Also, there are no other requirements that you must go live after so many weeks or months, and thereafter have a certain number of minimum trades. For a newbie, that is what I wanted to hear...

Thanks.

It looks like OEC is free only for 14 days.

I've seen that ninja gives free simulation account for unlimited time... would you recommend to start there for some time, and than try MC?

What is really the main advantage of MC over ninja?

Thanks again!

Is MC better than TS? What do you think about the new WFO feature of TS?

Thanks.

It looks like OEC is free only for 14 days.

And you don't want to hold $5000 in an account to get ongoing free use?

I thought the topic was "where to practice EasyLanguage". NinjaTrader does not use EasyLanguage.

you are right. The topic was easylang. But I'm also looking for a platform to be free for a few months.
(dont have $5000 for this now...)

the only free platform for simulation I'v found is ninja (with c#).

any other ideas?

please remember I'm really new to this

OK elibelly. So the main objective is "free". I think that there are no options other than NinjaTrader. For a comparison between NT and MC, here are a few threads and a video:




You will also need a source of data. Here are a few threads about free data:



I suggest you use the Advanced Search on nexusfi.com (formerly BMT) to do more research. Then post any further questions in the appropriate subforum.


Best wishes, Len
