Jun 20, 2008 at 3:58 AM

could anyone give me tricks to build an realtime quotes .csv file writer ?

i have a need to update quotes realtime in metastock and these software seems to be fit perfectly on this case !

i have experiences with vb.net but my tries on getting this working was in vain.

i need just the part of code that get DDE ticks minute by minute, like last price, volume, high and low for example.
and put it in a string line.

thank you very much for any help !

I posted sample in the VB.NET discussion for using NDde in VB.NET with Netatrader to retrieve realtime quotes, forom the OnAdvise callback function
youy can then create your csv file, though saving into a MySQL DB work be more efficient from a query standpoint when retrieving quotes easily
