Considering moving from Ninjatrader to MultiCharts
Today I hit a new level of frustration with Ninjatrader and I'm trying out Multicharts .NET as a potential replacement. Almost all of my trading is automated and I had a few questions maybe people here can help with...
First.. for those who use MC for automated trading are you happy with it? Any drawbacks I should know about?
Does a single MC license allow you to run it on multiple machines? For example I have my auto trading systems running in a VPS and do development on a laptop at home. Is that allowed or do I have to buy multiple copies?
Also, does MC allow you to enable automated strategies on start? basically if my machine crashes and restarts for some random reason, can I have MC automatically enable predefined strategies on startup?
I typically include external functions such as writing data to a Sql Database or calling a REST based API from some of my strategies, I assume since everything is C# like ninjatrader this shouldn't be a problem but do you guys see any issues doing this with MC?
