Ya… I’ve played with Dealbook sometime ago! It was an interesting setup… I�m trying to remember why I didn�t go there!!! At the time I don�t think you could interact with MT4! I’ll have to go and take a look at what has happened with it since! What language is it based on??? Visual Basic?
I just went to GFT… are you referring to using CTLDLL to run EAs in DealBook 360??? So if someone wanted to use GFT they would need to pay an additional $45 AUD for the ability to run EAs… Honestly, I find that a little strange since a lot of EAs are scalper based (MegaDroid, EuroBlaster…) and adding to the overall time of execution doesn�t sound too interesting to me! I needed to go to GFTs site to remember why I didn�t open an account… it was the platform! Everything else sounded great… if they would only switch to MT!!!
Here is what GFT said about running EA’s in Dealbook…
"My name is ##### from the Dealbook Help Desk. I am responding to your question about Strategy Runner and Expert Advisor. Strategy Runner works in conjunction with the platform the Expert Advisor is being run on, such as Meta Trader 4.
Strategy Runner alone does not run the Expert Advisor, only intercepts the trade signals from the platform, MT4, that the Expert Advisor is being run on. The intercepted trade signal is then placed as a Market Order on the associated GFT account. If you have any additional questions, I am willing to assist. "
