IDataLoader interface

Postby riverTrader » 24 Aug 2012

I am working on integrating my tickFactory into mc.net. At the moment i am taking the approach of accessing the data through the indicator class: eg. for every bar I retrieve the appropriate analytic value from my tickFactory. While this works the data I generate more closely approximates bar values (ohlcv) for synthetic instruments than it does a study for a particular real-world instrument. I can do accomplish what I want by creating an instrument that I access through ascii files, but what I really want to do is to do this real-time.

What I'm wondering -- and what would be really coool -- would be if I could use the IDataLoader interface to design a class that I can then have mc.net reference to load the data series as an instrument on the chart, rather than as a study. it seems possible, but I don't get how to hand the context the class.

IDataLoader results only "List of Bars", nothing else.

If you want to create real instrument you need MC-Data-API.
