    Excellent, thanks!

    How heavily multithreaded is MT? Would it help performance having a CPU with many cores?
  3. I figured it out. Copy and paste works most of the time and I use that since I have long complicated passwords but once I entered the password manually I was able to get API access. Sorry for the hassle.
  4. I just used copy and paste so there shouldn't be any issues with the case.
  5. Well, my notification settings keep producing an audible sound as if you are replying to my posts but now even when I reload the page I can't see any responses.
  6. The password I have for the main site, which works for that, isn't accepted by the software for the API access. Forgot to add that.
  7. Well, I don't have a password for starting MT. I think I set it up to remember it or something. But I only have two passwords in my records. One for logging into the site to update my profile or change my payment plan and a separate one for the forums. I can't find any way to retrieve it from the software (even though it must have it since I start the software frequently).
  8. Awesome! But I am trying to play with it now to see what I can do but can't activate the API feature in the software. I'm not sure how to get the Medved Trader Account Password needed. I would have thought it would have been the password I use to log in to the Medved Trader website here like to change which plan I'm subscribed to for example but it doesn't accept that.
  9. Is there any way in MT that it can expose the high and low of the current candlestick? I work with scripts where it would be tremendously helpful to me if I could, with the script, read the high and low of the current candlestick so that they could be used for setting up orders with my hotkeys. There are multiple ways the script could access data but the simplest way would probably be if I could configure MT to display the high/low of the current candle in a chart in the window title bar. I work with multiple softwares and some of my strategies require quick order setup and utilize the high and low of the current candle.
  10. Great! Can you give me an email for contact for that?
  11. I thought I would post this question here as it's not a request for a new "feature" per se but I wanted to ask if you guys would be willing to implement integration with another brokerage. Or at the very least allow receiving their Level II data from their service? I have recently begun trading with them using a broker (Colmex) outside of the US through an investment firm called TEFS and through Tradenet. I have tried searching around a bit here but haven't turned up any mention of them but there are thousands of us using their system as is and while their software is very effective as a meat & potatoes trading platform their charting pales in comparison to MT. I don't how involved it would be but was told that their technical team might be willing to provide the information for other charting software. I wanted to inquire here first before moving forward with an email to them. Thanks!
  12. Oh I see, so because they link the number of simultaneous quotes to the number of subscriptions available through the API I would have to pay extra to get access to say, 4 of those. And while there may be many people who use 4 subscriptions there aren't going to be many who are paying for more than 100 symbols. So there isn't a very large user base who would be able to take advantage of it. Then you'd have to pick and choose which three to implement and even then you'd only satisfy those who would be happy with that. And, admittedly, I would need the 4th. That's a really wonky restriction they have. Thanks for clarifying. I'll have reconsider finding a way to use another data provider.
  13. By saying that IB limits the API to 3 Level II subscriptions by default, do you mean that they would only permit API access to, for example, NYSE OpenBook, NYSE ArcaBook and NASDAQ TotalView, but wouldn't then allow access to Cboe BZX Depth (BATS) at the same time without paying something extra to IB for the API access? Would that imply that the guy who did it above was only subscribed to 3 of of those? I have just over $60 worth of subscriptions with the 4 major ones above for data through IB and I use maybe, maximum of 2 Level II windows. I do know they require some Level I subscriptions that are rolled into that amount. I'm not sure specifically what they are requiring and maybe this guy on Youtube is paying something extravagant to achieve what he has there but it just seems there must be a different approach at work or something to be able to get what would appear to be exactly what I would see in TWS from API. And he seems to be getting access from NASDAQ, Arca, and BATS. I have stuck with IB data as I'm concerned with not being able to use their SMART order routing, concerns with data consistency and the higher prices with a couple of providers that I checked out in the past. It's a bummer as IB is one of the few larger brokerages that MT works with.
  14. Jerry, have you tried poking around on the TWS API Users Group for how to get Level II to work properly with the API? There are a lot of active developers there well versed in many of the API issues. They insist there is a way to get it working and others have done it. Here is the link: https://groups.io/g/twsapi Also, check out this guy on Youtube... He created his own trading platform in C# using IB's API and in the video you can see in his Level II window all of the MM names showing properly with streaming data. Here is the link: This isn't some sort of advertisement by me. He isn't selling a trading platform and seems to be just sharing his coding and information on his sight.
