Re: point charts skipping bars [SOLVED]

Thanks for reply.. I deleted data 2 and issue went away.

I use the second data set for composite MPs and have the data hidden... is there any way to keep the data w/o it affecting the other data set?

Re: point charts skipping bars [SOLVED]

All settings in MC and quote manager were at settings you describe. I just did a fresh reload and the bars are still missing. Note the cursor is at a place with no bar but there is bar data for data 2 for that "bar" in the data window. For the normal bars that data shows up data 1 (top) part.

Re: Holiday data plotting

Re: MULTICHARTS 7 BETA 4 RELEASE -- Questions/Issues

I have tried both settings and am getting erratic (incorrect) displays from both. I changed to last trade and display fluctuates from the correct number to other numbers quite often very far away (more than one ES point) from the actual correct P&L. I'm seeing some delay on PnL using IB. MC is telli...

Holiday data plotting

Yesterday was Memorial day and is in my list of holidays in the quote manager. "Do not use holidays" box is checked in quote manager yet data from yesterday still plotted. How do we get holiday days to NOT plot?

Re: MC 7.0 Pre Alpha

That is good news, thanks. I have the update installed but MC version 7 still doesn't handle backfills as good as version 6.01 occasionally it just "hangs" and won't load the data.

When can we expect a version 7 beta for license owners? I like many of the new features but there are some problems with IB data still.

Re: MC 7.0 Pre Alpha

Hi,

I just saw the screen shots and noticed that there were only buttons for Buy/Sell @ Market, Bid, and Ask.

How about a button that allows us to Buy/Sell by clicking at discretionary price levels on the chart?

Thanks.
You can right click and get to options that allow orders at different levels

Re: MC 7.0 Pre Alpha

I have tested for a day and certainly welcome the changes and increased functionality. The icons look great they don't distract from the charts yet are easily identifiable. Ran into a few things that I have already submitted via bug reports.. is that the preferred method of submitting bugs? Or here?
