The setexitonclose is useless in autotrade because MC will send the order after the exchange is closed. MC should place the close order to the exchange before it is closed. So MC need a "Auto close time setting" to set the auto close time before the exchange is closed.

Can I assign the current market position in Auto Trading?

After connection loss or re-compile the signal, the auto trading will be stopped be automatically. If the auto trading is started again, the MC will assume that the current marketposition is 0. Can I assign the current market position and current contracts in Auto Trading?

Why a registered MultiCharts need to have authorization to run EACH TIME?
It is not fair to the user because it will create more RISK in trading.

The MC cannot start when there is no internet connected. Is it a bug? There is no such problem in v2.1. How to solve this problem?
