Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

the question probably comes down to:

Did you test in Multicharts using Tradestation data or did you test in Tradestation?

The next question would be what you tested exactly futures, stocks or Forex, as with the latter you might want to stick to the broker that you used the data for testing for, too.

You can use Multicharts symbol mapping and use TS data for charting and trade via one of the execution methods Optimus provides, via IB or any other supported broker. Provided that you properly configured the symbol mapping and are not trying to trade different symbols or instruments (i.e. chart a stock and try to trade a future as MC symbol mapping might not work with such a configuration).



yes I test in MC with data feed TS.
IB it's ok with broker to trade fast? you advise me of use data feed TS and trade with IB or use data and execution with IB
