My metatrader Experts and Indicators

Headstrong,

I have never used MT4 so just keen to know that do these service providers give backfill in Tick Format as it is absolutely necessary in the making of Tick Bars, Range Bars or Renko bars for that matter? TrueData is providing backfill in Tick Format for Ninja Trader. They do not provide data for MT4 I suppose.

Thanks.
Isn't TrueData's standard 1 second snapshot ?

MT4 don't give details tick chart. But true line tick chart of last few minutes in a separate window, we can't add indicators to it.
But programmers are fetching that tick data to make customized candle tick charts of say 5-10-20 seconds. Such templates free available in internet.
Probably we can't attach indicators to it.. U can further program it to made so..

U can download free demo from below link to do some research work..
There is nifty replica (like nifty spot not exactly spot), also few indian stocks replica available.. Good for testing before subscribe to any MT4 data feed..

Thanks.
Yeah on website all three softwares mentioned along with Metastock also.
Tried sending mail & online chat but both failed.
Don't know if they are active or inactive.

Will try again
They don't use direct MetaTrader server. It is indirect feed.. much slower data with less reliability. Tested and rejected long ago. Customer care pathetic.

U can't get a real MT4 feed from direct servers with simultaneous feed to Ami or Meta.
