Hi guys, How can I let Metastock place orders for me (in forex or stocks), how can I take advantage of "Default Trade Action" in Expert Alert that in Expert Advisor? I need help to find a way to place my orders, Or send email at least, on Windows10!

Hi, With some older versions of MetaStock there was a Trade option that was designed to link up with a particular broker. This did not interact directly with a broker/account but simply launched the software of that particular broker (in effect it was a shortcut to a particular broker software). As we continue to develop MetaStock it is possible that such a feature will be added in the future, but I have no specific dates by when such a feature will be added at this time.

Can you provide me that brokers or SDK, maybe that will help?

Also I installed it on Windows XP with outlook express but the email option still disabled!!!

Do you recommend a specific software  can enable email alert?

We do have long-term plans to implement a new API that brokers and other partners can use. However, I do not have any specific details/dates by when such a feature would be added. The feature you are referring to was only active in version 9 (although the Trade button still existed up to version 11 it was non-functional). This button was removed in versions 12 and later. This was never an API but it simply launched a very specific version of a particular Forex broker. We do not have a SDK or API to interact with a broker at this time. We should work with Outlook Express or any Simple/Full MAPI compliant mail client. Outlook Express should work but it must be set as the Default Mail Client in Windows. After doing this you must also allow email alerts within the Tools > Options > Alerts area. After this is done and you've entered an email address into this field, you should be able to go into individual expert advisors and modify the alert formulas to send email.
