I've been using Trade Navigator platimum for sometime now. I think it is good, BUT, I want to backtest a strategy that uses loops in the code, and believe it or not, but you can't write loops using Trade Navigator TradeSense language! So, I started looking for other backtesting software, preferably for free, I found and downloaded MetaTrader4.
The problem with MetaTrader4, is that I can't find out how to get charts for futures. Its only got FX. However on the Metaquote website it says it is suitable for Futures? Anyone know how I can get future data and free charts to backtest on? Right, my final question: Do you or anyone else know of a futures broker that uses MetaTrader? Preferably one where I can use data for free? Or can you recommend a cheap data provider?
Use google to look for, e. The problem is tho, if you look at the links on Google, many of them are links to forums with people asking exactly the same question!! I even asked Metaquotes and they said 'yes it can be used with futures' yet when I asked for any broker they said 'We dont know, look on Google'. I know we are not supposed to discuss brokers, but ANY broker who trades futures would be useful, because I wasnt to backtest data. I get a newsletter- a company was advertising that they do FX and Futures.
I don't know who they are. But I did go to their website. But if you live outside of the US here's their link. For getting info about mt4 brokers and forex trading go through the article of MetaTrader Brokers. Can I trade futures?! To add comments, please log in or register. Is it made by Metaquotes? Or are they just a broker that give away MetaTrader4 for free?
Metaquotes made MetaTrader, MetaTrader is software production only. Metaquotes can supplied some forex data for test and demo, but no futures data. MetaTrader only is a software, for example, you can have a pen, but what you want do with pen is not the things of the factory made pen.
I can connect to Google with MeteTrader?? Does anyone know ANY broker that use MetaTrader with Futures not CFD's because I've spent hours looking, I even asked Metaquotes and they said 'yes it can be used with futures' yet when I asked for any broker they said 'We dont know, look on Google' I know we are not supposed to discuss brokers, but ANY broker who trades futures would be useful, because I wasnt to backtest data.
I tried loading in data from TradeNavigator but MT didnt seem to recognise it. Hi, I've been using Trade Navigator platimum for sometime now. Does the chart data come from Metaquotes? I'm can't find much info on the net. Many thanks for reading this, have a good weekend.
