Hi everyone. I'm interested in using chat software to send trade instructions to an EA in MT4. Slack has an Outgoing WebHooks integration that will allow me to send an http request but I haven't been able to find any way for MT4 to receive these requests so they can be acted on. I can send http messages from an MT4 EA to Slack but not in the other direction. Does anyone know if there is a way to do this please?

 Thanks for any help!

You'll have to implement your own web server, have it leave a file or use named pipes or quick channel to get it to the EA.

Thanks for your reply. I'll see if I can get Apache to install on my VPS and take it from there.

 I will also try to figure out named pipes since I don't like the idea of using files for this.

Thanks a lot.
