2 beta2 bugs i found

1.) .rld global doesn't work. There's no way to reload data for ALL symbols, you can only do it one symbol at a time and it's a real pain in the behind. 2.) if you have a scanner linked to a chart and both have different datasources, clicking on the scanner symbol will force the datasource on the ch...

MC 6.0 .rld glob doens't work anymore

I'm trying to reload data for ALL symbols in quotemanager and .rld glob doesn't work anymore. When I use, from the menu: View -> Reload -> Reload All Data it ONLY affects the chart that's selected. This is very painful b/c I would have to reload data for each symbol at a time. I'm sure there's a way...

I want to use IOG b/c I want my stops to be calculated intrabar. I thought that if you have IOG = true and BarStatus(1)=2, this makes the execution perform on the Closing tick of that bar. So: [IntrabarOrderGeneration = true] if (MarketPosition=0 and condition=true and BarStatus(1) = 2 ) then begin ...

I just tried this out and there's another problem. The trade will work correctly in TWS, however the signal doesn't get triggered in MultiCharts. This will make MC and TWS out of synch, not to mention skew backtesting results. I've attached an example. It shows 2 instances where the the buy stop did...

Detecting if a stop exists

One can detect whether there's an open position by using MarketPosition=1, but is there a way to detect if there is a STOP ? For Autotrading, I have a trailing stop loss that's calculated with IntraBarOrderGeneration = true, so within 1 bar there could be multiple stops being sent to TWS. I want onl...

Kewl. :D

If anybody wants to know this is how you do it in TWS:

From the menu:
- Page --> Settings
- Presets --> Stocks, Options, etc..
- Settings --> Time in Force

GTC order

Basically on the close of today, initiate a buy stop at today's High + .01. Simple enough, but what ends up happening is the order will get cancelled when the trading session is over. How does one write code to execute a GTC (Good Till Cancel) order ? [IntrabarOrderGeneration = true] if (MarketPosit...

Latest MC Beta 4 is kicking butt

I don't know about y'all, but Beta 4 has been running very smoothly for me. It starts up faster, and did anybody notice that drawings get saved for each symbol. I can now leave my Fib retracement levels and switch around to different symbols, then return to the previous symbol and my Fib are still t...

thanks all for your comments. I found the option "Assume the initial market position at the broker the SAME AS on the CHART", and so far it's working great. I was also able to get TWSSTART working for the demo account, but not the real one. I don't really mind re-logging in if I can use "SAME AS on ...

Autotrading out of synch

Just recently I've started to use MC's autotrading feature and I must say I'm hooked. It works great when MC manages the entire trade. What I mean is that MC initiates the buy signal and manages the sell signals without any interruptions. However what to do when MC and TWS are out of synch. 1. TWS a...

The features that flipflopper are talking about are a must.

I like drawing trendlines, fibonacci retracements, fib fans, etc. but MC doesn't save them. This feature would really be useful.

this may be a very easy question, but I've spent the last 3 hours trying to figure out how to get a count of the total bars since open. i'm during 1 min chart, so for example: start of trading session = 9:30 at 9:45 the total bars should be 15 at 10:00 the total bars should be 30..etc..etc.. any hel...

Trendline signal

Hi,
I was wonder if there's a way to draw a trendline that has a signal associated with it. If the price hits that line, I would like some sort of alert to get triggered like a sound or popup.

Thank you,
