Hi everybody;

here is my problem: I found that MC is the best software to code and to develop strategies... but when you found a good one, what to do?
There is few brokers who work with MC and no connectivity with Zulu, C2, Tradency etc....

So we've got MT4 wich is horrible (for me) in the developpement/code but good in execution and connectivity to brokers.

Is there a solution (exept code translation) to connect MC -> MT4 (a dll or something???)

I know my thread is a little bit... optimistic (lol) but....

Thank you.

Nicolas.

Have you thought of instead of connecting MC to MT4 you use Ninja. The Ninja people provide a connection between TS and Ninja which will work for Multicharts. I have only tried this in Sim but have a strategy written in Easy Language that fires orders to Ninja. Seems to work fine. I basically modified the test strategy they provided with Ninja. As Ninja is free for testing you may wish to try this. I also suggest looking at their manual/help guide which gives further information. Note I am not talking about the standard email interface but an interface that works through a dll I believe.

I have been looking for something similar, in my case to take trades/alerts out of Tradestation and get them into the Metatrader world.

TradeBullet.com seems to offer this solution. From their application summary: "TradeBullet handles fully automated order routing to your broker from TradeStation, Collective2, eSignal, MS Excel, most charting software and any custom application." The 'Ultra" edition of the software states as part of it's functionality "Fully automated trading of TradeStation 2000i, TradeStation 8 and Collective2 systems. No modification to your strategy is required. API DLL that allows two-way communication between TradeBullet and 3rd party applications such as TradeStation and MetaTrader"

They offer a trial period. Since I've read MultiCharts is 99% (Tradestation) ELD compatible, and there is a API that may be able to be utilized here, perhaps the right combination of criteria is present. I am not yet at the testing or implementation point yet so I unfortunately have no further hands on guidance.

First thank you for all your solutions.

1. Ninja is not for me, the problem is between MC and MT4.
2. TradeBullet seems to be very powerfull, I will test it.

but I have another problem; in fact I found a very simple way to send orders from MC to MT4 with a CSV file and an EA. (check:Paul's Forex random walk: A crude "API" for MetaTrader 4)

The big Problem is: "what about MT4 datas from MT4 to MC" in RT??? I think first of another CSV or TXT file but MC can't map OLHC datas, it can just map "price" data.......

Achhhh......

Dear @NicoVersailles, that doesn't make sense, and I think you are wasting your time here.
Why not using one of the MC compatible brokers, MBTrading, Dukascopy or FXCM (in this order ) ?

The problem is that MC has not enough brokers and not enough connectivity with services like C2, ZipSignal or RentASignal.

My signals are based on daily datas and I can have position during 2 months so I have to look the rollover rates;
MB Trading are a little bit high, FXCM worst and Dukacopy, you must have a great account;


It will be cool if UK Brokers like Alpari or Activtrades would be available with MC...

Why not MBTrading...

I think he is trying to capture the data from his broker, and tunnel it through to MC. The easiest route is in fact to use a supported broker. The second easiest method is to get the broker to be supported via MC. Post on both MC and broker support forums. Request API access. No guarantees, but sometimes brokers are happy to branch out. 3rd option is to request API access and write your own real-time export/import tick function (bridge). Option 4 is similar, but with no API access. You write a custom indicator/EA/script for mt4 that will send incoming ticks directly to the MC datacenter. The latency would be minimal (<1ms) and you get the benefit of real-time charting... You'd always have to leave your workstation on for this, which i already assume you do. If you are doing automated solutions, than this is less of a problem, as your server can hold in the cloud for months or even years without a reboot.
