Mirror ES to MES trades in MC.NET

Hi, is there a good mirroring service or plug in for MC.net? I am auto trading (sim) a good strategy in the ES on a 2400T chart; however, I want to start it live on the Micro ES but can't find a "happy medium" tick count on the MES that renders profit/trade performance similar to the ES's strategy.

I've been able to do this manually trading by charting the ES and executing on the MES in the DOM but with an auto strategy my understanding is that it only executes on the #1 assigned data series. So I can't "stack" the MES over the ES on a chart to achieve my desired results.

Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

TIA,

Matthew

Matthew2158,

while you are correct in your understanding that you can only trade on Data1, you can utilize multiple data streams within your strategy. If this works for your strategy logic, you could for example set your charts up using MES as Data1 for executing the trades and ES as Data2 for computing your logic.
Another option could be using a custom instrument / data loader in MC.NET, but using two data streams will likely be a lot less complicated.

Additional options could be using structures like Global Variables where you basically send the information that a trade should be issued across two charts in real time.

Regards,

ABCTG

Thank you, ABCTG. I was able to map chart vs. broker symbols to the ES and MES, respectively, for the given trading account. That perfectly achieved what I was after!
