To summarize my question:
(i) I have external databases (MySQL) that contain dividend and fundamental data
(ii) I wish to tie these into returns (dividends) and stock universe/watchlists (fundamental data)
(iii) Would like to use RE/RE engine for final system development and real time implementation.
Given I am a novice-intermediate VB Net programmer I am trying to understand whether it is more efficient to find a way to access this data from within RE or whether I should compile my own code and access relevant RE dlls to access the RE engine as it were.
Thoughts and suggestions? If there are any samples of code that show how to access external data from within RE that would be helpful if it is the better path.
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
