Privacy and Security of Strategies
I am doing some development for a business.
The people at this business are exploring the Marketscope platform.
I believe I know the answer to my questions, but I have not found anywhere on the forums or website this information and these people want full disclosure and explicit statements.
Are the strategies we program and develop for Marketscope (also posted in Strategy Trader) private and secure property of the business for whom I develop?
Due to the fact that we would be developing for an FXCM owned platform/software and the source to said proprietary platform is closed. They want assurances that nothing in the platform records, reports, uploads or in anyway distributes or discovers the strategy programmed/developed/used to FXCM for any form of use. It is our understanding that these are client side programs and want assured that they remain client side and proprietary to their system.
And yes we understand that anything we do may not be unique, but expect that any coincidental similarities will be due to the other parties efforts and due diligence and not due to access to our materials.
I understand that this a paranoid question, but this is business, and they want proper assurances, not merely my assumption of FXCM's practices or policies which have heretofore not been discovered by them.
Thanks for any help.
All your signal and strategies are only client side. Marketscope (as well as FXCM Trading Station II) doesn't record or upload any strategies or indicators. BTW, you can compile your strategy into the binary format to hide source code from anyone.

how to load customer indicator in bin format
Can anyone kindly to help:
In the tradingstation II, how to load customer indicator in bin format which is compiled by indicoreSDK?
thanks in advance!
You can load indicators in bin format in the same way as indicators in lua format: the Chart menu -> Manage Custom Indicators -> Load.
here is my testing case, could you give me some advise?
the attached ZIP include 3 files.
the source is MA.lua which is modified from mva.lua.
the binary file use .bin and .lua which are compiled by Lua indicator debugger.
when i load MAbin.lua by indicator type in Marketscope, the error shows
failed to load indicator in the file ... the error details:[string "MAbin.lua"]:1: unexpected symbol near '?
when i load MA.bin in Marketscope, the error shows
failed to load indicator in the file ... the error details:[string "MA.bin"]:1: unexpected symbol near ' '
Regarding the attachment:
MA.lua - it is an indicator.
MA.bin - it is the MA.lua indicator in .bin format.
MAbin.lua - it is an invalid file. You must not use it at all.
Now why you get the error when loading the file MA.bin into Marketscope.
The MA.bin was complied using the new Lua virtual machine via SDK 2.0. Due to new LuaVM limitation, the new binary format is incompatible with the current version of Marketscope.
The virtual machine for Lua has been changed in further Marketscope release which comes to production pretty soon. So you'll be able to use your MA.bin in the next version of Marketscope. We understand inconvenience, but better performance worths it.
By the way, you can try the beta version of Marketscope which supports such files right now.
The beta version is available on the FxCodeBase site: FX Trading Station/Marketscope 2011-III Beta (note that the link is available for fxcodebase registered users only).
Please also note that the beta version is installed in addition to the production version of the Trading Station. It does not replace the production version, so both version can be used simultaneously, in the same time.
thank you so much for the information.
Marketscope is really the best plarform i had ever used.
my appreciate to your effort to improve it.
