    has anyone or does anyone know how to feed data from etrade's marketcaster or pro trader java program into amibroker?

    i was using quotetracker and ever since they decided to switch from freeware to shareware for US brokers, i have been on a search to integrate etrade's datafeed into ami

    any help would be great
    all i know is that i need to use the DDE plugin
    just dont know how to set it up properly

    guess i'm just going to have to fork out the money
    not a big deal but it would be a pain since i know there is a possible way to utilize the dde plugin
  3. I don't know about etrade, why not use IB, it's very easy to feed data to amibroker with IB. It's only 10 bucks a month data charge if you don't trade the IB acct.

    Have you tried emailing amibroker? I found them very helpful.
  4. Why not just email Tomasz or Marcin? You'll probably have your answer within 24 hours, and possibly within one or two.
