4. PlatformTransmit for MetaTrader 4

To "run a strategy" here on Collective2, you'll need to submit buy and sell signals. That means: when it's time to buy something, you need to tell us, "Buy now." When it's time to sell, you'll need to tell us, "Sell now."

In other words, at Collective2, you never post an imaginary track record, based on how you would-have (should-have... could-have) traded.* You actually have to tell us: "It is time to buy XXX now." Or: "Take a profit now on my position in YYY." The results of these real-time buy and sell signals are the track record we show to prospective subscribers.

How it works:      https://support.collective2.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005017968
===========================

Connect MetaTrader (4):

  • PlatformTransmit is only for Forex. Users cannot sync other instrument types.
  • PlatformTransmit is special Expert Advisor capable of reading any type of order from MetaTrader 4 and posting it automatically into a C2 trading strategy which you manage. PlatformTransmit requires at least version MT4 build 600.

Once you set up MetaTrader 4, orders can be entered into your C2 system without logging into Collective2. In addition, you can use MetaTrader's manual buy / sell order entry, or you can use MetaTrader's automated strategies to enter new signals into C2.

Important
You can connect only one MetaTrader 4 Account (sim or live) to one Collective2 Strategy at this time.

Minimum System Requirements:

--   Microsoft .NET 4.5 SP1 (download page)
--   Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 (download page
--   MetaTrader 4 build 600 or above
