Thread: How do I enable my MT4 EA to trade using a FIX API?

  1. #1

    How do I enable my MT4 EA to trade using a FIX API?

    I want it to perform trades and am with an EA. I am looking for advice.

    Can there be a separate bridge that attaches to the EA?
    Can the EA need to be coded differently to enable it to execute with FIX API?
    How/where do I obtain the FIX API performance?

    Your input would be appreciated.

    @JT4xPro I did hit a dead end with my API search. I've been testing out Trade-Commander that's a pretty wonderful tool but it just functions for Interactive Broker (IB), I'm seeking to join from Oanda MT4 to Oanda API. The EA I'm attempting to use was bought so MQL4 documents for editing code.

    Which broker did you wind up writing your API bridge for?

    Thanks,
    Yosh

    Hi!

    I composed different kind of API which isn't bound to a specific broker. To get out of MT4 sandbox I utilized WIN API for named pipes, shared memory and sockets (even working with MT4). You can also write a dll that enables sockets or anything else for MT4. Or if all on precisely the computer runs beside named pipes a very simple but effective solution would be to use files.
    I connected several MT4 with each other, trading algos written in C or Java using MT4 and with FIX API and so on. There are loads of chances in trading once you are out of the basic level, climbing. Don't hesitate to ask for any advice in particular. I'm running this now and I am always interested in extending my system.

    Just how did I do it would be to common to answer more in particular than I described above. More detailed questions can be answered by me however I can't write a tutorial the way to do it here.
    I'm in a position to assist you concerning the technical skills required for it. Whether it is well worth it, and I will tell you.

    FXPig offers distinct feeds for FIX what's really nice. I didn't test all them yet. But the one I tested that I have to say was fairly poor. The order implementation was so slow that the following happened: I sent a order, the price dropped the price came back up and I received the order implementation report. That meant I was unable to close my commerce in profit plus it was in profit for some time (but my algo didn't understand as a result of the not yet obtained implementation report).
    Really this if this occurs this is a good indiion for last look from the LP or Broker. Or a really sow order implementation.

    Authentic, it seemed as dumb as ctrader (demonstration ) to me, too (such as 1/2 moment to handle an order); and really the fix gateway is a characteristic of ctrader network, and so that is that.
    But again it is demo.
    Also their mt4 demo is slow as ****. But, a person told me that their server(s) work quickly.
