Welcome to

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.

Sending a tweet from TS (looking for Guinea pigs!)

I wrote something for one my clients who wanted to send strategy events to Twitter, and it seems to work.
As I don't have any TS accounts for extensive tests I'm looking for Guinea pigs who may be interested in this.

The EL strategy or indicator will look like this:
external method"TStweet.dll"int"exeTweet"string ;

int ret ) ,
string toSend " " );

toSend "BUY " GetSymbolName;
ret exeTweettoSend ) ; 
If someone want to try it let me know!

Twitter "hates" automated scripts and does not expose them to a large group of users if accompanied by popular hashtags.
My suggestions is to use this for strategies that do not send trades frequently accompanied by some human verbiage.
