Re: There is one solution

It seems to me quote astonishing that in more than 4 years a solution has not been identified. Ok, Multicharts does not want to pay developper's time for building the japi connector, and the reason it's quite obvious (IMHO): the availability of dukas history data in MC would mine their FXCM data of...

Re: Best computer for Genetic Algo optimization [SOLVED]

Would Amazon EC2 be a viable alternative for backtesting and optimizing in MultiCharts/MultiCharts .NET instead of buying a new high-end desktop pc every year?

And for me, there is nothing wrong with backtesting and live trading in different brokers as long as ...
