Multicharts support automated Forex trading via IB?

Postby liang323 » 09 Mar 2008

hello, I'm a user of Multicharts and I used to trade futures thru Interactive Brokers, now I'm also looking into Forex. Here are my questions:

1. Just wondering if it is possible to do automated trading of Forex via IB instead of MCFX(FXCM)? I think IB provides Forex datafeed as well.

2. I heard that Multicharts now support intrabar order generation, does this feature also apply to Forex auto trading too?

3. If I choose to use MCFX to autotrade forex, does MCFX support intrabar order generation as well?

4. and any idea about roughly when the next release of MCFX coming out?

Thank you very much for the effort and support!
