Re: Historical Data Management

Vking Look at your quote manager, is it downloading data each time? you can see the actual data being downloaded by looking at the event log. I am not too familar with the replay function. However I have tried loading a five day 50Tick GS chart. Once the data is first downloaded, the jump to bar is ...

Re: Historical Data Management

Vking I have just loaded for the first time a GS 5min chart. I downloaded the last year's data, then changed Instrument settings to the prior year and downloaded that years data. Changing the instrument settings back to last year again resulted in the chart being drawn again in about seven seconds w...

Re: Historical Data Management

Vking I have tried reloading different two year periods for my charts and watched the quote manger window. The charts are being loaded without any data being requested from my Data supplier except for the current realtime data. It seems that once the data is loaded into the database, it seems to wor...

Historical Data Management

Perhaps someone could explain the following. I set up a chart and download the last 2 years YM data no problem. I now change the instrument settings to cover the two years prior and download that data. No problems. Now I should have four years data in the database (in this case I am using a 5min cha...

Re: Time And Sales

This is excellent news. I can quite understand that your priorities are to get the manual trading
sorted out first. Hopefully with manual trading and Time and Sales you will be able to attract many discretionary traders to use your product.

Re: Time And Sales

I have another trading software package that does everything except you cannot draw a line and set an alert if the line is crossed. I know people have asked for years for this to be included with no effect. I wonder sometimes if this is a problem to do with patenting. I can understand however with u...

Thanks very much for this (and to the author) it is just what I wanted.

I have a number of charting packages and for many reasons I always have preferred Multicharts. However the lack of Time and Sales information has been a real pain.

What version of MC are you running? I am on 6.01 build 3081. I believe there is now a 6.1 version
available.

Re: Plot statement crashes Multicharts

Mike Thanks your script is working fine. Obviously I was not using enough parameters in the plot statement originally for it to work properly in the scanner. I notice that even on your script, if a change is made in the power language editor and compiled without first removing the indicator from the...

Re: Plot statement crashes Multicharts

Found that the following will work ok: if close > close[1] then begin plot1("Test1","Alert1",black,yellow); plot2("Test2","Signal1",black,yellow); end; This plots Test1 and Test 2 in the scanner window with Alert1 and Signal1 headings. It would seem therfore that this use of the plot statement does ...

Re: Plot statement crashes Multicharts

Mike Yes this plots the price with a coloured background in the scanner window, which I have worked out to do from the manuals. What I wish to do is to plot text in the scanner window with a change in background colour. Ie how do I plot "Up" in blue or plot "Down" in red? I guess I have two use 2 pl...

Plot statement crashes Multicharts

The following code is crashing MC when applied. {Plot1("Close");} If Close > Close[1] Then Plot1("Higher Close") else Plot1("Lower Close"); I presume this is because there is no Plot statement defined but it compiles ok This is occurring on Version 6.01 Build 3081 I am trying to plot Higher or Lower...

Time And Sales

When MC 7.0 is released will it have Time and Sales information? At the moment I have to use a free charting package to show this information. Is there any way to display this information in MC at the present using an indicator/strategy? Obviously the data can be supplied by the data stream but ther...

Re: Problems with Plot Statement not working

Mike

Yes that was the problem. Many thanks.

This is the first example from the Markplex.com Easy Language Tutorial series. It was a little discouraging for me not getting this first indicator to work!

On to example two now :)

Problems with Plot Statement not working

I am trying a very simple indicator which does not plot right. It should plot at the average of the bar when the high of the current bar is less than the previous high and the low of the current bar is higher than the previous low. Sometimes it plots completely above or below the bar, even though cl...
