Jump to: navigation, search

To connect MultiCharts to TradeStation data feed, it is necessary to have their software installed and launched on the computer.

Note: MultiCharts should be run as Administrator. Right click on MultiCharts icon, then click Run as Administrator. This should be done as TradeStation is run as Administrator by default.

If the connection is set up correctly, MultiCharts brings up TradeStation software automatically when data is requested.
