MT4 with IB data?

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by lachie74, Sep 4, 2007.

  1. I've grown quite accustomed to MT4 as my charting program, I have many custom indicators on there I couldn't live without.

    Problem is the server I go through now is unable to supply data on a few contracts I'd like to trade.

    Is it possible to use IB real time data (I am a customer) with MT4?

    Thanks in advance

    MT4 is designed to work with dealing desk data, not raw data from an ECN setup. I know there are a few shops that are promising to have MT4 ECN setup, but no one has delivered on that promise yet. There is an API but you still have to work with a server and admin module - it's not that straight forward. If you can get MT$ to work with your data feed, there are a boat load of traders who would want to speak with you.

    And I would be one of them....

    I've been dreaming of someone doing the IB feed thru MT4 for years...

    Is there ANY way to get futures data to MT4?
  4. The mt4 custom indicators are written in a language quite similar to C++ so its not (awfully) hard to move them to C dlls for a program like SierraChart.
