Multicharts .NET vs Sierra Chart: for auto-trading?
I have been trading Forex with Metatrader 4 and 5 for a while and now I decided to move to Futures because of transparency and liquidity in certain contracts.
I will most probably open an account with AMP Futures that offers both Sierra Chart and Multicharts .NET for free.
But I know I would have to convert all my EA to each different platform.
So, I would like to ask people who have experience with one or other platform about their auto trading capabilities.
I have been playing with Multicharts Trial, and it looks nice. But I noticed the tick by tick backtest can be tricky.
For example, whenever I use Bid and Ask tick, I feel like the backtests become over pessimistic.
Also, the Portfolio Tradrer is great, but it doesn't seem to support tick by tick backtest.
How would Sierra Chart compare to this?
Also in terms of converting an EA/signal already coded in MQL4 for example, which platform language is easier and more robust? MC .NET or SC ACSIL? Which advantages do you see on those programming languages?
If you have nice comparison examples, specially concerning the auto-trading functionalities, and programming issues, it would be great to hear from you.
