You need a setup from your broker with PATS API. Some brokers are taking a monthly fee and other brokers take more costs for roundturns. It depends on how much you are trading.

Hi aljafp and cato1974,

Below, you will find instructions on how to set up PatSystems with MultiCharts.


Launch Quote Manager.
In the Tools menu, click Data Sources.
Select Patsystems (J-Trader) and click Settings.
Contact your broker. Inform the broker that your program uses MultiCharts as the Application ID and ABA653V001 as Licence ID. Get from the broker the values for Host IP Address, Host Port, Price IP Address, Price Port and enter them in the corresponding fields.
Indicate the Login and Password.
If your broker is experiencing problems, ask him to contact


P.S. You would need to make sure that your broker does enable MultiCharts on their end.

Because there is no historical quotes with PatSystem, I think that I would like to use eSignal as real time datafeed, and use the quotes from PatSystem in my trading orders only.

Do you think it is possible/compatible?

Do you know someone that can testified that PatSystem in MultiChats is bug free for order executions.

Hi Ducan,

Could you please elaborate on how you would like to use the eSignal/PatSystems setup? MultiCharts allows combining historical quotes from one datafeed with real-time from a different feed; strategies can be applied and orders can be generated on the resulting data series. But I am not sure if this is what you are asking about.

If you are talking about using PatSystems as a broker, the dll for auto trading via Pats is now being tested and will be available in one of the future versions of MultiCharts.
