Can't connect to Oanda  [SOLVED]

Postby LA901 » 09 Nov 2016

I'm having trouble connecting to the Oanda data feed (as well as using as a trading broker).

I'm using a practice account with MC 9.1 and it just gives a connection error whenever I try to connect.

Attached is the log when I try to connect to the data feed in Quote Manager - the login details I'm using are definitely correct, I get to the log in page where I can choose which sub accounts I want MC to access then after this it won't connect.

I've tried installing the Oanda module listed in the sticky post on this forum too but that didn't fix the problem.

Hello LA901,

Most likely you have V20 account with OANDA, that is not supported in MultiCharts.
Please contact your broker and ask if it is possible to get another account type to use in MultiCharts.

Thanks - it is because it's a V20 account.

Do you know when these account types will be supported by Multicharts as Oanda are not allowing me to use a non V20 account.

At the moment there is no ETA when these accounts will be supported in MultiCharts. We are working with OANDA in regards to this.
