I'm new to MetaTrader, and am looking for a hosted platform that supports auto-trading and strategy development/testing/optimization of futures (CME, CBOT, etc) in an IB account.
- Can MetaTrader and the hosted MQL service be used for this? I realize it's popular for Forex, but not sure if the programming environment and backtesting/optimization supports Futures constructs such as Tick Size, Point Value etc which are used in my systems.
- Can MQL5 and MQL4 both support this? Which one do you recommend?
