Advice from fellow users on Data source, now that OT is gone

Dear All: I am using MC for system testing and development, haven't used it since February, but now I want to use it again - however, OT is out of business. Please recommend and advise on a real time data feed for stocks, futures, and options that supply data feed to MC. Thanks, deobisnath

I am afraid this is how it is in both MC and TS. If your entry orders are buy/sell next bar at market then you the entry price is simply the open of the next bar; if not, then you can calculate the entry price with a bit of reverse engineering: MyCurrentContracts = CurrentContracts ; MyAvgEntryPrice...
