Slippage Multicharts per contract

Hi, I've set the "per Share/Contract" slippage for e.g. 12.5$ (ES trading) having 30 trades with 10 contracts, I expect slippage to be: (30*10*12.5)*2 = 7500 but multichart is calculating slippage per contract/share as follows: (30*10*12.5) = 3750 TS calculates slippage as in the first exa...

Re: Broker equity curve [SOLVED]

Thanks Henry, I nearly got it work. Using GetRTUnrealizedPL with IB doesn't include positions from" FX Portfolio - Virtual FX Position". I (as IB does, too) consider those positions as Portfolio positions. IB lists those positions under UnrealizedPL. It would be great if MC considers to sh...

Broker equity curve [SOLVED]

hey,

is it possible to chart the equity curve of the broker connected to?
It would be great if there were an option to save the equity curve as time series to display it later again.

Re: export to .eld

Simple question: How do I get all my custom studies from Multicharts to TS?
Some simple export/import function would be great. If this is not available I have to copy and paste all studies from MC to TS.

I have the same problem. I'd like to bring all of my EL Code from MC to TS, as MC is to instable. Is there really no other way then to copy and paste my 300 indicators and strategies to TS?

Re: two different intraday data - strategy not working [SOLVED]

TJ thank you for your quick reply. I got it working with your help.
Is this a Multicharts solution only, or is it the same in TS?
And where can I read about exact this topic in the manual from MC? Do you have an link to the documentation/manual?
Thanks again.

Re: Switching Symbols in Scanner doesn't load symbol in char

The settings are the same.
I also see data for DE:$DAX in the scanner window.
Example:
When I click on @ES in the scanner, the chart window updates to @ES
But when I click on DE:$DAX the chart window doesn't udpate.

This behavior is just with symbol DE:$DAX, all other work.

Just give it a try.
