Does anyone know who offers system code conversion service?

Want to convert AmiBroker Formula Language into MultiCharts PowerLanguage. It's a complete system with practical interface to adjust various settings, apart from Operating code it also includes Monte Carlo Simulation Code.

Nice to see you made the switch from Amibroker to Multicharts. I made the same switch not to long ago, Multicharts is just so much better IMO.
Your best options would be to either try Multicharts directly or maybe try http://www.abctradinggroup.com/ I'm pretty sure one of these two should be able to do it, if not you can get them to code your system from scratch by just describing the logic behind your system to someone that can code easylanguage/powerlangauge ELD.
I hope this helps.

Thanks mate, I will follow up with abc trading group. MultiCharts charge a minimum of $500.

Good joke :)
I've used Bullcharts, Incredible Charts, Amibroker, Esignal, Ninjatrader, MT4, Multicharts and Sierra charts and found Multicharts to be the best all round.

Amibroker's a good platform (for the price) but it's more suited to people EOD trading securities and doing portfolio level backtesting.

Amibroker doesn't even have DOM or chart trading which makes it a waste of time for most active Futures & FX
traders.

Other features Multicharts has that Amibroker doesn't is Simultaneous multi broker connection & data feeds, It handles Esignal & DTN-IQ data feed way better, It has Depth of market with all advanced order entry & exit techniques built in, Built in semi-automated trading strategy's, telephone technical support, remote desktop connection technical support, All major charting types built in (Renko, Kagi, Point & figure, Point bars, Volume Delta, Volume Profile, Cumulative Delta,TPO, 3 line break, Heiken-Ashi etc), more advanced drawing tools, large list of supported brokers. I could go on and on and on. Even Esignal has most of these features.

BS.

And AB does have chart trading and you can create your own individual chart trading environment which you can not in Multicharts.
AB lets you connect simultaneously to broker and data feed too. And since AB can run multiple instances it can also run multiple simultaneous broker & data feed connections. AB comes with a free API and other open source codes while MC is hidden and black boxed. MC is more suited for people without or very little programming knowledge (like yourself obviously) while AB provides much more freedom/control and flexibilty to the user. AB is also able to draw all charting types. AB can also create DOM. Please. And please don't tell me that you trade built-in trading strategies.

On top of that MC is absolutely useless when it comes to backtesting, for example backtesting of markets with different currencies. It just provides static currency conversion for example which is a joke of the century. Amateurism at highest level. Bugs in optimizer. And the list goes on.

MC also seems to be great at phoning home.

AmiBroker and Sierra Charts are far ahead of MC. MC should concentrate themselves more on low standard platforms like MT4 and Ninjatrader which they already compare themselves to officially. :D

BTW just another simple example exposing MC's incompetence. In MC you can not import external Bid/Ask data (price and volume) at once via their slow importer at all. Suited for intraday? Rather ill thought through.

Not necessarily better but different. Any slight crititism always brings out the AB fanboys defending their product with religious fervour.

You can definitely do more with AB as far as analysis goes but MC is definitely a better trading platform + you can't run automated intraday strategies on AB properly so not much use to me:2twocents

Why not just stick to facts rather than personal attacks?
The MC Net version is no easier to code strategies for than AB and just as flexible:cautious:

AB can also create DOM.
Wondering if you have a link to the DOM .afl and/or the creator of this auto trader please? AmiBroker - Custom Chart Trading Plugin v1.0 - 2/3 Parameters & Lines

And what are you doing? I was correcting his false infos. He wrote that this and that can not be done in AB despite the fact that it can be done and much more that is not possible in MC at all. And that it is obvious that he has not much clue about programming and AB was just getting shown by his false infos about simple stuff being mentioned. So there you have another obvious fact. Instead he seems to rely on built-in ready made strategies.

Of course you can run intraday strategies in AB properly. Just do it correctly.

I'm sticking to facts in comparison to incorrect informations.

Try some more comprehensive stuff in MC and you will fail. And it is not easier definitely not. But it is not about easiness anyway. And FYI also, in AB there can be programmed in AFL, C/C++, NET. What options do you have in MC? You have to buy an EL version and a C# version to have two versions/two options, both together for well $2000-$3000. And just to still being limited in the end.

Obviously the creator of that older version is me.
