Description: HELLO, I want to feed/stream live data from my web based broker (stocks, index, forex etc.) trading platform to the charting program I have on my computer (Amibroker).
So basically it would be a DDE (dynamic data exchange) from my IG Markets trading platform to Amibroker charting program on my computer. Amibroker is a charting program which is very versatile and is enabled to set-up DDE. Metatrader, which is a foreign currency exchange trading platform, is DDE enabled so it is simply a matter of adding the DDE server name into the generic DDE plug-in field within Amibroker. Yes Amibroker has a generic DDE plug-in built in.
CLIENT = My charting program (Amibroker) features
# 'C'-like, array-based formula language (AmiBroker Formula Language - AFL)
# an Open Indicator API (allows to code your indicators in any language capable of producing Windows DLL),
# OLE/COM object support (can call any method , read/write any property of external COM objects)
# JScript/VBScript support (can embed parts written in JScript or VBScript within the formula)
# extensive OLE automation interface (write scripts to automate any task)
If this data exchange is at all possible please let me know. THANK YOU.
