I am revisiting old trading platform as Multicharts.net framework is proving to be frustrating to work with
As according to their forum, I have seen posting like:
I will start my post by showing how much development in MultiCharts .Net has frustrated me. There is little to no resource available to help a beginner. I have almost 2 years of experience with multiple trading platforms and APIs and i have never seen anything that is so scratchy with the resources it offers.
Now to one of many issues i have been facing. I want to take full control & track any orders that my strategy generates. I see no order events that can be used. Also, when trying to do some hit & trial, i run into trouble finding help about many of the Classes/Interfaces of the API. They are not even mentioned in the help file that comes with the editor. To name a few: IOrderControl, COrderPriced…
So for the $1500 or even $9000, I would have hoped to see better resources. As a result, what does open source not give me over this?
P.S. You really expect my 100+ members to work with this as I cannot figure it out? I was really excited with the amazing GUI but the back end development end is well…
UPDATES: On this revisited open source trading platform, I am able to build from source which was never possible. I am able to load the strategy DLLs easily. I will see if I can call my generated Matlab DLL. If this is possible and can be tested, it could possibly be bye bye MC.net. I will do some videos on this if it works!NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
