But you could just bypass it: Oanda offers MT4 and "rest API" (which is a true quote API)
or write some code (a little clumsy) which transfers data to a file
and then read it from there (wouldn't produce so much time lag with today's SSD drives).

Here is how to enable it in MT4. In excel you use tags to receive info like when calling from another sheet. You could bypass excel altogether if you have an app read info directly from dde and pass it to J.

I did enable the DDE in option but too bad I have poor knowledge about programing and have no idea how to read directly.
My intention is trying to find the easy way to intergrate J with streaming data from trading platforms for people who are interested in J Chart's application and in meantime I don't have dig my pocket in order to maintain and host servers, but too bad it seems difficult to do.

John, please confirm the platform is not commercially available and that there is no product or service being offered or sold in any way related to you or J-Chart.
If the platform is not private for your use only, then it must be open source/free in every way with no pay model whatsoever. Otherwise it is a violation of our forum rules and is considered self-promotion for this thread to exist.
Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

bigmike how about the rest of us who use mt4 in relation to the same "theory/ies"? its unfair to kick us out...we are not selling anything and we just want to learn more about it (at least spartan is "teaching" us something....if only we could understand it though....)
Mike...588 posts..59 pages....not one poster has solicited anything...how could a reasonable thinking person think that John is look for a buyer ...He even says you can BORROW his book on kindle from amazon....I dont know if that is a profitable venture.
