I just confirmed that it is a problem with constant range bars. After reinstallation this time I did not create a constant range chart and everything was fine. Then I tried to create one on the ES (one point constant range bar) and MC froze up and crashed. It is not IQFeed because I use them with an...

I reinstalled once again and started to build a workspace and MC crashed once again. It seems it could be a constant range chart that is causing the problem. As I begin to construct that chart, that is about the time MC crashes. Has anyone experienced this? Is there a way to fix this without reinsta...

MC crashes and now data is wrong

Hello,

I installed the new beta this morning and as I was building a workspace MC crashed. Now the data is wrong (seems like it will not backfill the data).

Strategies not working correctly

Hello, I have a simple strategy that buys and sells based on a price channel. It works great in TS but it doesn't work in MC. In MC it seems to buy and sell at random and the quantity is incorrect. Is the strategy part of MC fully functional? I wasn't sure if that part was ready yet. Thanks, iso

Yes, this is still happening to me also. In Task Manager the processes tsServer.exe, MCActive.exe and Studyserver.exe are hung up after MC is closed down. They have to be killed manually or you have to reboot. If you try to close them manually, the next time you open MC, the program crashes. Any ide...

This is a huge issue with MC. By forcing the entire indicator to be displayed in the current view leaves the chart useless. I have posted a chart to show the problem. I have also posted a chart to show what the chart looks like without the indicator on it so you can see the difference.

CRASHING ON STARTUP AGAIN............

I updated to the new beta and MC worked for one day. Today I started MC and it continues to crash on startup......

It also seems that after it crashes a few of MC processes stay hung-up in windows and you have to "End Task" manually.

Ok, now all of the studies are back. If "Last Bar On Chart" is overwritten from the indicator that is being imported, could that cause a problem?

Also do you have any info on if using IQFeed is more reliable and efficient than IB?
