Can anyone explain how to connect MT4 or MT5 to Bittrex? Ideally it would be great to trade directly from the chart, but just the ability to use my custom indicators to analyze the pairs available through Bittrex would be a big help. At some point I'd also like to connect to Binance. Consider that I am new to the community with little experience writing code. I'd also consider working with a freelancer if necessary, but I'd really prefer to learn how to do it myself. I've seen some examples on YouTube, but they are music videos that don't seem to show how to connect the data from Bittrex to MT or they start ahead of what I'm understanding and need more explanation to get it.
Thanks in advance
I am not sure about Bittrex but there is the article related -

How to Start with Metatrader 5

Very interesting article was published today -
How to trade on an external cryptocurrency exchange via MetaTrader 5
Not so long ago, the MQL5 language developers have introduced the updated functionality featuring the ability to develop custom symbols and charts. The broad traders' community has not yet had time to appreciate the power of this innovation, but even an easy and unobtrusive brainstorm shows an enormous potential hidden in the custom symbols. Together with other MQL tools, they allow you to implement many of the most daring and interesting ideas.
From now on, MetaTrader 5 is not just a terminal that interacts with one DC. Instead, it is a self-sufficient analytical platform able to connect to various exchanges via the API, as well as visualize price movements and trade flows. A small set of new features turns the terminal into an open system rather than a toolbox containing a limited number of trading tools. In my opinion, custom tools can also become powerful analytical capabilities.
Let's illustrate the new language features using the popular subject of cryptocurrencies as an example. I believe, it will further strengthen the community's interest in custom symbols.

my project ATcl (MT4) contains example "WebSockBinance" which subscribes to tick stream (it`s much faster then Rest-API). You can customize it to suit your needs. RestAPI also possible via this library.
it`s free and w/o limitations. see Announce in blog: https://www.mql5.com/en/blogs/post/718307 or project site http://nektomk.ru/en:atcl:start

hello , thanks for share , can i know if we have any chance to receive data tick from bitmex with your ATcl?
tanks in advance
You can receive tick data from BitMex in the same way. In
the above example, you need to change the subscription address and data decoding. (https://www.bitmex.com/app/wsAPI)
I can adopt script for BitMex, but not earlier
than in a week or two- now it’s very busy
BitMEX Trading API Header files - library
for MetaTrader 5
BitMEX Trading API library was built to be as easy to use as possible. Concern more with the trading strategy logic and less with the code.
