Project Description

I need to get an Excel based trading system to work with FXCM's trading Station currency trading system

This project requires that the winning bidder has already worked with Excel integration with FXCM Trading Station before. It can be coded with either VB or C++, it does not matter which. I believe there is Forexconnect API already, which should help with this (more info here [url removed, login to view])

System requirements
1. Upon Excel launch, check OHLC data is up to date in spread sheet and download new daily OHLC data from FXCM Trading station if necessary (note. only daily OHLC data is used in the system)
2. Then update the daily OHLC data in Excel from FXCM Trading Station on FXCM daily tick over.
3. My excel sheet will automatically calculate if a trade needs to be opened, closed or modified.
4. Read signal cells from excel and send trades to FXCM Trading Station for execution
5. If easy - record trades back in excel (actual buy/sell prices/P/L) - this is a nice to have but not essential.

Dependent upon FXCM's trade execution time, a small delay may be required before each trade command or a check required to make sure the execution handler is not busy with another execution. I mention this just from other systems I have had built for MT4.

Note. My excel system already automatically generates buy/sell, stop loss and close trades signals using the previous days OHLC data.

I have attached an excel sheet with additional information to help with the quote.
