Forgive me for the number of questions on my first post. I am a quant trying to move into a home algo trading career. These seem to be the most relevant problems I need to solve:

 

1. Tic data, can meta download outside the env or just within it?

2. Can anyone suggest a good source of (free) tic data?

3. If there is some decent scratch code for a simple 1 instrument algo trader with listeners and trade requests in it to the meta platform I would be grateful to have a link.

just a suggestion for a start, look thru the code base on this site for an simple cross-over EA.

This code looked excellent but won't compile. Not sure what symbol is being used as the current symbol and where the data is downloaded to. Any ideas on what this code is doing in META would be appreciated. Thanks for the heads up for the example above.

The script downloads historical data (for the current symbol), available at trade server.
