Re: Compile error line 0, column 0

Thanks for responding TJ. The problem was not with a new installation. I was using MC64 9.0.11210-400. I tried the reinstall - it failed. I updated to the latest beta and that appears to work for the moment. This has happened with numerous previous versions so my confidence longer term is very low. ...

Compile error line 0, column 0

Ok, i have just about had it with this problem. It has been around for years and is a pernicious time waster. This needs to be solved and forever forgotten. The initial advice given was remove the study being compiled which is a pain in itself seeing you may have a dozen instances of it loaded. But ...

Re: Question on DOM queries for the bidsize and asksize [SOLVED]

Hi TJ -I am mainly trading Globex - currencies and ES. Your suggestion gives me an idea. What do you think of adding a very short period data series, say 5 seconds, and use your suggestion of RecalcLastBar to produce the short term data I am looking for? I normally use a 5 minute chart.

Question on DOM queries for the bidsize and asksize [SOLVED]

I would like to know if anyone has had any success using the "DOM" aspect of MC in order to get realtime bidsize and asksize? I have tried just about every configuration and the result has always been the same - i.e. the quotes (both price and market size) are VERY slow and they miss more quotes by ...

Re: MULTICHARTS 8.8 RELEASE CANDIDATE

Just wanted to say that 8.8 is a very positive upgrade across a wide spectrum. I have been using the "study on study" and it can also be a "study on study on study...etc." It's a great feature however there are many and makes 8.8 a powerful enhancement. Thanks!.

Re: 2 datas series and extended backtesting issue [SOLVED]

What I believe Henry is saying is that you cannot use more than one data series - in the code - however you can still add other data series to the chart which can then be referenced in your strategy>properties>backtesting when you use extended backtesting. I completely agree that precision backtesti...

If extended backtesting is made more precise by using bid data and ask data, 1) how can it not support two data series? 2) can extended backtesting ever be used? 3) what is the purpose of it if it can speci...

I must be missing something obvious but here goes. What is the value of multiple data series in a signal when the the additional data series are over ridden by data1 ??

Re: Problem compiling [SOLVED]

Yup. When I follow the "function trail" back to the start I get the error message at the beginning point. Prior to that the compiler highlights the function as "uncompiled" until the last function is reached.

All of these functions have been previously compiled in MC as they are.

Multi data series backtesting

the Wiki states "Intra-bar order generation is currently supported for single-data series charts only. Intra-bar order generation for multiple-data series charts will be implemented in the next release of the platform."

This was written before MC 8.0. Is this feature currently operational?

Yes. That's what I used to do before I started using 8.0 64. I guess you are saying there is no alphabetical index unless you go back to 7. Seems like an obvious tool to have available.

Re: Multiple systems in MC

The way to do it is to use each strategy on a separate chart and if you are auto trading synchronize position at the broker. If you are long 200 shares ABC and get a "sell short 200 shares" signal only 200 shares will be sold, thus making you "flat", rather than sell 400 shares to get a short 200 sh...

Re: Multiple systems in MC

I think you may be referring to what occurs when longs and shorts are used and , for example, the long is liquidated when the short signal triggers. This will cause the long strategy and the short strategy to not add up to equal when they are individually calculated. If this is the conceptual proble...
