PRT DDE Option Not Available


ProRealTime DDE plugin (prortdde.exe) is a handy tool that enables us to export in real-time data from the list displayed in the Lists window of our ProRealTime workstation. 


Unfortunately the version of PRT we are using does not have the option of  "Export DDE". 

Thus we cannot use this handy tool. With this tool, I can export real-time data to Excel to perform analysis.


Can we have the "Export DDE" feature enabled on PRT? 


Thnak you.

Thanks for getting in contact and sharing the idea! 


I will contact the Pro Real Time team and the other relevant departments about seeing if we can get this enabled and as soon as I hear back from them I will let you know. 


One thing I will suggest having a look at if you are looking to use historic data to help build a strategy is to have a look at our API offering, where you can use Excel to perform trades and perform analysis, although I might add programming experience may be needed. Please see the link below that will give you more information.




I do hope that helps and I hope to be able to reply to this thread soon with more information.

Thank you for your feedback. I shall explore IG API as suggested. But I hope the DDE option can be made available. Please keep us informed when you hear backfrom them.

    • For me your stop is large, I use close to the minimum for the market. But I think same applies. I think basically I like tight stops because you can't lose too much but when you win hopefully you win big relative to that. I've been using a 4:1 reward/risk ratio for example.  When I started out I thought the likelihood of pulling this off given how close the stop was to entry was unlikely but actually it does happen fairly often. The issue I have is that I average a win every 4 trades so essentially make nothing in the end but that's just my mean, I have a massive standard deviation that I need to get way down i.e. increase win rate if possible before this is useful. So for me I think I need better timing signals to enter and I enter too readily without really using indicators to help me. To be honest though what I've found which might be obvious to most is that if the market trends for a period of time it's much easier to make money. When it isn't it's very difficult, the problem is you often don't know when it's not trending to a large enough degree until you're in it and then you need to know to take some time and return later. Like sailing with a strong wind and then all of a sudden it's doldrums.
