Re: MULTICHARTS 12.0 RELEASE 6

I discovered that the frozen chart / data issue usually occurs when MC is started before the market opens. Can anyone try this? It happened to me last week with build 18038. The frozen chart / data issue seems to be a general issue, regardless of the broker. My broker is GAIN Capital. This is a seri...

Re: MULTICHARTS 12.0 RELEASE 5

Does anyone else experience flashing bids / asks on the DOM? The issue has been there since at least MC 12 R3 as far as I know. Take a look (the image shows missing bids / asks):

Re: Portfolio Trading

Another thing that would be cool is the ability to set any strategy/signal to be fully automated, just like regular MC signal that is turned on, or semi automated: when a buy or sell order occurs, it is listed on a sortable scanner-like window so that I can manually respond to the buy or sell order....

Re: MultiCore Machine and MC-Support

Hi bstrader, I have the same problem, but my setup is different than yours: I use a MacBook Pro 2010 (Core i5) and a Mac mini 2010 (Core 2 Duo) to run Windows XP Pro natively with Boot Camp. One of my signals somehow causes MC to use only about 50% CPU when I do an optimization on the MacBook Pro, b...

Re: MULTICHARTS 8.0 RELEASE

Regarding the crosses above and crosses below issue, I installed MC 8.0.5722.401 sent to me by Henry to fix some other bug. It seems that crosses above and crosses below work as expected now. Crosses above now works for -2, -1, 0, 1. But, I have not tried it with -2, -1, 0, 0, 0, 1 (see the three ze...

Hi TJ, Let me explain, "-0.2, -0.1, 0.1" and "-0.2, -0.1, 0.0, 0.1" are series of avgema value bar after bar. For the first scenario, the value of avgema starts with -0.2 for the current bar, the next bar after that it becomes -0.1, the next bar after that it becomes 0.1. Let's c...

Re: MULTICHARTS 8.0 RELEASE CANDIDATE

Hi Henry, What do you mean by expected behavior? That behavior does not exist in MC 7.4. So, this is unexpected for me. I think other MC users are also agree that sending an order when the condition is not met is not only wrong, but also not expected. I can remember that this wrong behavior started ...

Re: MULTICHARTS 8.0 RELEASE CANDIDATE

Henry,

Yes, we are on the same page. I think it is a bug that MC sends an order and cancels it right away when the condition is not met right after turning on the auto trading. MC must not send an order when the condition is not met when I turn on the auto trading.

Hi Henry, Here's a simple test script that you can try to see the bug. The buy limit order will be submitted when Close[2] > Open[2] and Close[1] > Open[1]. When you see two bars closing higher and one bar closing lower, turn on the auto trading immediately. You will see that a buy limit order is su...

I turned on the auto trading on a Chart that contains my tested and bug free signals. The signals work just fine in MC 7.4. 2. MC started making calculations as usual from currentbar = ...

Re: MULTICHARTS 8.0 BETA 3

I created a script to detect internet or broker disconnection using getappinfo(aistrategyauto). The idea is that when the auto trading turns off, the script plays a sound to notify me.

Re: stop order cancelled

It turns out that the dollar trailing stop bug is still there in MC 8 beta 2. The workaround that I tried did not work. After three ticks of correct dollar trailing stop move, it just stopped responding to price movement. It just stopped moving. I tried it with ESM2 futures. So, MC Users watch out ....

I have the same problem. I trade ES contract. Here's what I found out. Essentially, scaling out of a position does not work in MC 7.4. Consider this scenario: 1. The entry signal buys 2 ES contracts at 1300 all at once. The exit signal sets a stop loss for 2 contracts at 1297. The exit signal is als...

Re: What component of MultiCharts do you want to be optimize

I would like to add order submission to optimization list. The way MC submits, modifies and cancels orders to the broker must be as fast and efficient as possible. After all, order submission is a realization of trading strategies.
