Forexconnect newbie

Hi all!

I just discovered forexconnect and I'm trying to wrap my head around this API. I have a few questions:

1) is forexconnect api able to pull indicator values from FXCM's servers? Or does it get historical price data and then internally makes the calculations etc? For example, does it pull values directly from FXCM server for RSI or SSI?

2) Anyone tried to connect this to ninjatrader 8? Ninjatrader is c# and I'm hoping there is a way for me to call the API from ninjatrader script and then have the API pull data from FXCM's servers. Is this possible? If I can't directly pull data from Ninjatrader.. I may be able to connect forexconnect to matlab and fetch the data and then build a live connection with Excel and then pull data from excel to ninjatrader (uh!).

3) Any suggestions/working examples??

Thank you so much!

1) Forex Connect is a trading API and is not able to pull an indicator data from FXCM servers, so no SSI ready available.

2) You can export SSI data from FXTS. I am not sure about Ninja Trader, it is supported by another company.
