Auto-start of trading system

Postby fbertram » 31 Dec 2014

Dear MultiCharts fans,

I'd like to set up my trading machine such that it automatically performs scheduled restarts. To do so, I would need to start Portfolio Trader and IB Gateway through a batch file or macro.

Has anybody done something similar? Any hints, suggestions or expected pitfalls?

Thank you so much,
Best regards,


Felix

Hallo fbertam,
I created programs to do something similar using AutoIT.
If somebody is interested I can provide the source code of my AutoIt scripts.

The programs start MC and enable Automatic Trading.
At the end of the day MC is shut down.
Windows task manager is used for calling the programs.

regards
Ulrich

Hi Ulrich,

I am also experimenting with AutoIT. Any scripts you are willing to share would be highly appreciated.

Thank you,
best regards, Felix
