I have 2 issues. Please advise-
1) The DDE sample does not seem to get updated. Any ideas?
2) I am planning to use a third party application to get the data from MT4 into that application. What should be the DDE Server Name and topic name?
I tried MT4 as server name but its erroring out. What is a topic name exactly?
What is the Third Party Software? And what does it say as to how to set up the DDE link?
If you have a mini account going in your instance of MetaTrader this changes your DDE Topic from:
MT4|QUOTE!EURUSD -> MT4|QUOTE!EURUSDm
MT4|BID!USDCHF - > MT4|BID!USDCHFm
MT4|ASK!GBPUSD -> MT4|ASK!GBPUSDm
That always gets people.
