May be the question i am going to ask is already awnsered somewhere here in this forum but I could not find it.
I am from Pakistan where I trade in a local stock exchange which provides it own trading terminal which has a facility of saving the realtime tick by tick feed into a plain text file. I developed a software in VB6 for my personal use which reads this realtime feed every 10 seconds and outputs the ticker, last price and trade volume fields via DDE. To bridge my software and the MetaStock I used HyperServer Lite
. This Hyperserver lite
was a free version till december 2005 after which I assume that something happened to that company 'cause they are not even awnsering emails or posts on their forum.
As long as hyperserver was available or was free, I didn't bother to look for anyother possible solution but now I am looking for all possible solutions to my problem of feeding my realtime datafeed into metastock.
Following are my questions and awnser to anyone of these can solve my problem.
[list:f159c9a77e]- Is there any free
(Lite version) software available which can act like HyperServer and accept feed via DDE and provide it to MetaStock? I already know about the paid softwares like MetaServer RT
- Or Is there any free (Lite version) software available which can read comma seperated text file and provide the selected feilds to MetaStock?
- Or Is there any built-in facility in MetaStock (like AmiBroker does have) of accepting real time feed via a DDE server?
- Or can I get some sort of free SDK/MDK/API which I can use in my software to directly feed the Equis Data Server/MetaStock File Server?[/list:u:f159c9a77e]
Anyother possible solutions are also welcomed.
Thanks in advance :wink:
