I had never looked at OEC until I read this thread. Their platform looks good.

From my perspective....

Pros:

Trade multiple accounts

Trade from Chart

Custom Indicators


Cons:

I would have to re-learn Easy Language and try to convert all the stuff I wrote in C.

Margin requirements are several times higher for CL and 6E than what I get now

Commissions are 15% higher than I pay now

Concerns:

I don't think I could create the Push Buttons that I use in NT to trade (see attachment)

I don't think I could create the screen gradient I incorporated into my indicators (see attachment)

Anyone here (with OEC) trading the HSI, TW or NK? I'm looking to add these Asian future indices to MC, but they are not being found. If you have the current symbol, please share. Thanks much.

cory, thanks for the reply with images. I can't tell, but are those the same 3 instruments I referenced?

I was able to add the FDAX fairly easily because MC's look-up found it. It's not finding HSI, TW or NK..

EDIT / ADD: Just got done with a chat session with OEC and the guy there said that the Asian markets have been on holiday and the contracts have not been found lately?

Did you happen to get confirmation from OEC that their demo and live data feeds are different? I'm trying figure-out how or why an OEC demo account is getting standing limit order fills after a TOS paper account.

The reason you are getting TOS paper fills first is because the TOS paper money platform fills limit orders on a touch. When trading real money, the market usually has to move through your entry price by one tick to fill your order. For derivatives trading, that makes little difference. For futures trading it makes a big difference, especially if you are scalping or involved in short term transactions.

Hi Mate,
you can perhaps use your C skills and use SC's ACSIL to convert your indicators, and connect to OEC, I am currently trailing it as well.
Good Luck

Constructing MACD into MACDBB

hi, I use OEC Trader and I was hoping you would help me turn a regular MACD indicator into a MACDBB lines indicator. thanks for reading. I was wondering if I could just add a bollinger band around the MACD somehow and turn one of the lines into dots... any help would be nice.

I had a brief chat with OEC before they closed for the week and was told that $TICK is the NYSE cumulative tick data. I tried this symbol and it's not working for me. Others here using this data? Maybe a separate charge for this feed?

This is what I see on my Demo Account:
  • TICKA: AMEX TICK
  • TICKN: NYSE NET TICK
  • TICKQ: NASDAQ COMB. NET TICK
Please note that you'll need to have an Equities account through OEC to get these symbols though, just a Futures account won't give you this data.
