Hi Tony,
I used OEC Trader briefly, during my demo(2 weeks only), it is impressive. I cannot answers all your questions but you can setup and a demo where you can run off MC and OT together, if OEC is not your broker. If it is then you can use two applications at the same time and test whatever I wanted. I preferred SC charting because of my indicator. I developed it for OT using easylanguage and was up and running very quickly. However, the way it loked on the graph was not readable because of the limited attributes of graphical elements.
If I go ahead with them then I will be using SC.
They offer a lot of integration with TS, esignal, etc. I think they start to look like a serious player.
It is .Net platform so it easy to integrate but I am not a fan of it.
Good luck

Thank you. I have a funded account with OEC now and I run their data through MC. I'm currently paper trading futures as I still have much to learn. MC uses EL, and that is one the reasons I decided to use MC over others... I really would like to avoid the use of multiple apps / platforms at the same time. And while I compared MC to others like NT and SC, I never did so with OEC's Trader, which I now have access.

For some odd reason I'm unable to chart QQQ, a daily, whether it be a 5 or 500 day chart. I was able to chart other ETF's like the SPY and EWZ, no problem. Curious if others experience the same...

I was having the same problem yesterday and it is the same today, 6/18/11.
I will probably try to get a hold of somebody next week if it is still like this.

You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.

You are using QQQQ, right? Nothing on the charts here, either. Also, in the Trader's grid there are only 0's and no other values??

Thank you both.

The quad Q's recently changed to QQQ: Q: Why Did QQQQ drop a Q to Become QQQ? - MarketBeat - WSJ

Caught me off-guard somewhat...

I'm guessing that is the reason why OEC (or OX) is having issues. But, that is why I tried a 5 day chart too, something not going-back to when it was QQQQ...

If you don't have time to call them, I've found them quite responsive on their forum: OEC Forum

FWIW, I did post about QQQ on their forum, but did not receive a response. It was seen though. I was stuck on calls most of Monday, but will call OEC tomorrow to see what they have to say...

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.

Hi Skyfe,

Here is the EL code for BB_MACDs...
You will need the Custom Indicator Plug-in installed first in OEC. Just email me when you need help.

//=================================================
// Bollinger Band MACDS
//
// For OEC Trader as a Custom Indicator...
// OEC will need to have the Custom Indicator Plug-in installed first.
//
// 20110705.1500 - Arnie Penaloza - See profile for contact info...
//

inputs:
FastLen(12),
SlowLen(26),
Length(10),
StDv(1);

VARS:
BB_Macd(0),
Avg(0),
SDev(0),
Upper_band(0),
Lower_band(0);

BB_Macd = MACD( Close, FastLen, SlowLen ) ;
Avg = XAverage(BB_Macd,Length);
SDev = StdDev( BB_Macd, Length ) ;
Upper_Band = Avg + StDv * SDev ;
Lower_Band = Avg - StDv * SDev ;

Plot1(BB_Macd*100, "Macd");
Plot5(BB_Macd*100, "Macd2");
Plot2(Upper_Band*100, "Upper");
Plot3(Lower_Band*100, "Lower");
Plot4(0, "Zero");

// END of BB_MACD code...
//=======================================================

Enjoy!

Enjoy!

I compiled in OEC Trader and does look nice. Is there a kind of system attached to this MACDBB?
Thanks again.
