Hi Bernardfruler,

Just so you're aware, we are just in the process of adding Metatrader 5 support which is one of the most requested features that we have on our list, so this is currently taking priority and we aim to release this shortly.

In parallel, we still have a discussion going on about how best to implement the Darwinex feed. As you know, the bid/ask data is stored in separate files and will therefore need to be merged before it can be utilized as tick data. If we have to host the modified data on our own servers, then this a cost that will need to be passed on. We are therefore in careful consideration about how this will be done to maximize benefit (and value) to all our users.
Our philosophy is not just to pump commercial features out but to ensure that, where possible, we are inclusive of both our free and paid users.

I know it isn't the ideal answer but appreciate your patience.

Thanks.

Hi Bernardfruler,

We are always appreciative of the interest in our development, so thanks for touching base.
The good news is that our Metatrader 5 release is now out which means this piece of work is higher up our list ;) As far as the discussions with Darwinex go, the guys have got back on all our queries, so it definitely is a goer. It appears there is some plumbing work to do on this however, as we will need to set up our own servers to store a merged version of the data. Appreciate your patience on this as we work on this.

Thank you!

Hi Bernardfruler,

There is always a light we are working towards ;) Just to give you an idea what's going on at the moment: We're needing to work on a few prerequisites before we can add new data sources. That is, download queuing needs to be implemented. At the same time, we're considering the framework that will help us to add a few other features down-the-track as well (eg. API access, custom databases, etc). I know it doesn't quite help you out immediately but hopefully the wait will be worth it.

Thank you again for your patience.
