NEW FEATURES

Trading Performance Report

Trading Performance Report is now available in MultiCharts. This report is similar to the Strategy Performance Report, but it’s based only on actual trades that were performed at the broker. The trades may have been done through chart trading, DOM, automated strategy or through broker’s platform – if the information on the account is returned to MultiCharts upon connecting to the broker, these trades will be shown in the Trading Performance Report.

Historical Data for PFG

PFG connection now offers historical data. Even though their FIX real-time service does not support historical data, we integrated another server

Order and Position Tracker Visual Change

Order and Position Tracker now shows only one line for each order generated. Previously one order could show 2 or more lines because of Symbol Mapping settings.

Workspace Name Handling

It is now possible to open more than one workspace that has the same name, but located in different folders. Tooltips are displayed for workspaces, showing where the file is stored or whether it’s unsaved.

BUGS FIXED

  • NetChange value was incorrect in Status Line for PFG symbols.
  • Trading Technologies data feed would generate an extra Bid quote each time an Ask quote was received.

  • Signals would sometimes stop calculating in real-time when based on two data series.
