Python do it yourself coding vs 3rd party trading platforms

Python do it yourself coding vs 3rd party trading platforms like Multicharts

Questions from someone via my help desk:

Here is the exact question which is found here 

Hope all is well. I am at a crossroads right now when it comes to choosing a platform, and coding the proper language for some strategies.  Im not interested in wasting too much time, for now. I do have interest down in the road when my time frees up to go through libraries of videos. I have accounts at Interacrive Brokers, and was planning on using Multicharts to execute trades to IB but have come across the open source you were posting about with tradelink. Does this seem like the route to be taking? Coding language for tradelink? I read about guys bashing people for not wanting to pay the $1500/lifetime but for what Ive paid for a lot of programming to get done Id be penny pinching these days just like anyone else and asking questions. Hindsight is 20/20 and I dont want to waste much more time and or money. Im looking to just begin trading and trying to open up avenues for business grow when that happens. Thanks for the time.

Techical analysis with retail trading platforms like Metatrader or Multicharts

These are a bunch of question that came in recently about technical analysis and popular trading platforms:

Q&A on retail trading forex trading platforms like Metatrader:

 

“Thanks so much for creating another excellent Youtube video.  I hope you look up Pew Die Pie and find out who he is.  It’s unbelievable that he makes videos about gaming and generates millions of views and millions of dollars in income per year.  You have the opportunity to carve out a niche for yourself with your YouTube channel.  

 

Do you code in MQL4/MQL5 which is the programming language for MetaTrader4/5?  It’s an object oriented language like C++.  On https://www.mql5.com there are over 6,000 EA (Expert Advisor) scripts which are 100% automated trading systems to be run on Forex.  Some are free and some charge a fee to download these scripts.”

 

So which trading ‘genius’ verified these actually work? Honestly, don’t be a fool to fall into that ‘retail trader’ type mentality. It only leads to trading ruin. 90% fail so remember that!  I have seen it so many times. Thus, I could use my favorite saying: Do I laugh or cry?

 

Do you plan on writing your own EA for the Forex?  If so, I will be interested in purchasing it in the future as I have brokerage accounts with Forex.com, FXCM, Tallinex, OandA and they all use the MetaTrader 4 platform.  Unfortuneately, IB isn’t compatible with the MetaTrader 4 platform as of yet.

 

There are reasons why Interactive Brokers does not support MT4. The big one is that you need to be an official broker to use their server edition which mostly corrupt forex brokers only support. I stay away from these to only stay with the ‘cleanest’ broker of them all which is Interactive Brokers.

 

Please let me know if you plan on developing your own Forex ATS using MQL4/MQL5 EA.

I did but I prefer the path of Python as it is easy, condensed code, free, and better community with awesome packages. Did you see my latest Python videos on my Youtube Channel?

Ugh Multicharts!

 

 

Are you able to point me to the page that will have the code for this video

I searched for multicharts/multichart without success.

 

Have you seen my thoughts on this awful piece of software:

About technical analysis:

Does TA actually work??

How’re ya?

TA only is good for timing trade entries only. That is all

 

Hmm

 

Fundamentals with TA actually helps to a decent investment. It is more luck to be honest if you watch charts exclusively

 

Hmm yes!!

Watching charts exclusively is a lazy and an common way to lose money while trading

 

Hmm yeah

Don’t be fooled ok?

A Youtube comment came in from:
Funny how you knock multicharts for the steep price but don’t see the irony of the pricing for your own premium membership.
I responded with:
Does Multicharts do live webinar sessions, offer end to end source code solutions, dozens hours of code walkthrough, enterprise ready software solutions? I could go on.

I got this from a reader:
I’d love to join your member community. However, when I watched your videos on youtube, the voice is always in low volume, almost cannot hear it. This is a big concern. If your videos in the member area are always made in this low quality, I can hardly learn anything from your service. 
 
Can you address this issue?
I replay all my videos back and never seen this problem. I play it back on an iPad and regular desktop through a head set and speaker set up. Does any one else have this problem? If so, comment below:
