To setup integrated trading so that NeuroShell Trader sends trades to an FXCM real account or FXCM demo account:
- Select Options on the Tools menu.
- Select the Send orders to brokerage option located on the Trading Orders tab.
- Select FXCM Forex Broker from the Brokerage drop-down list and then enter the login details for your FXCM account.
To try integrated trading without risking real money, it is recommended that you create a demo account with FXCM and enter the demo account login details. Once you are comfortable that your trading system is working as desired, you can then change the account information to your real account login details to send trades to your real account and begin trading with real money.
Note: If Popup order prompt/confirmation is checked, then NeuroShell Trader will ask you if you want to send orders before sending them, otherwise it will simply send orders without user interaction.
- At this point, any chart you load that has a trading strategy will NOT automatically start sending orders to FXCM. Only charts that have active trading already setup will send trades to the brokerage. To setup active trading on a chart, select Alerts/Orders Window from the View menu and select the Trading Strategies on that you wish to actively trade from the list on the Active Trading tab of the Alerts/Orders window.
