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.

Hello Lobo,

I agree with you using a text file to communicate between the programs is probably
the best solution. I would start with MC first and check if you can access a file
created with append in MT4. I tried a similar method last year but MC6 blocked
the file access.


I am not sure the management of orders via a single file will be a reliable solution. Issues are starting with having 2 programs accessing the same file.
The email or the DLL integration of NinjaTrader and TradeStation are interesting. TradeStation Integration
with unfortunately no direct application for MT4.

Ok ,

@ pfabcTrader you gave me a very important hint , which has led me - after some intents on my own - straight into the MC support (we might have different versions of MC , I still have loaded MC7.4) :

The team there than helped me out with two links :

Universal DDE - MultiCharts in the newly created MC Wiki

and some 2 videos , position 4 and 5 in the list of


When I than asked , if there would also be a way of shuffling tradedata from MT4-Brokerage into MC the answer was "No" (which is a reconfirm to me , from people which know about MC )

Ok, IŽll work on the connection , next step that is . But I really wanted to follow up also appreciating the post of pfabcTrader


PS.: Nur nicht verzagen, sondern wagen! => and NEVER give up

Could you or for that matter anyone else please also share Excel screenshot to achieve above result? I am particularly interested about how/what you gave name to particular cell in excel? Tutorials on Multicharts site are very short.
