Re: MC doesn't shut down properly [SOLVED]

When I open my desktop with offline data, I get charts quite quickly with data untill today. When I close and open the desktop again with online data and filling missing data, it takes much more time. The charts are freezing waiting to get backfilled. After shutting down, the TSserver (91 MB) and Tr...

Re: MC doesn't shut down properly [SOLVED]

Thanks for your full answer. I shut down MC and reboot once a week. If this is not often enough, how comes that MC doesn' t shut down properly after one week. "...before you shut down your computer or restart MultiCharts, make sure all the MultiCharts processes are completed." >> ok, but w...

MC doesn't shut down properly [SOLVED]

After closing my desktop in MC and exit, I saw sometimes a small window processing something in the database. Now it isn't anymore. Everytime I start up my desktop it takes too long to see my charts just because MC has to look for the data in TWS again. I see that because I get annoying historical d...

I have those error messages also a bit too easy in my opinion.

Re: Entry EOB Target/Stop intrabar [SOLVED]

Had a search on forum but not in wiki. (stupid me :-) ) I try to understand the concept of barstatus and I think this will do the trick but in practice I don't see always direct impact on the signals. Can I combine it like here? LE = barstatus=2 and close > average(close,10) ; LX = MarketPosition = ...

Re: Entry EOB Target/Stop intrabar [SOLVED]

The [IntrabarOrderGeneration=true] was above. Because it didn't worked as expected, i tried to use the statusbar in the definition of the LE, SE and the stops. But with no different outcome.

Re: Entry EOB Target/Stop intrabar [SOLVED]

I implemented it and it indeed seems that the entry is EOB altough the [IntrabarOrderGeneration=true] is used. Which is good. But now also the profit and the stoploss are end of bar.

Re: Plotting indicator within strategy [SOLVED]

MC for TWS is just for trial, I'm already using MC 64 v9.0 build 10360. If I put i_setplotvalue(1, MarketPosition); just below the formula as you showed, the compiler gives: unknow function. So, I seems I don't have the beta version? What's best to do? Other program possibility or download the beta?...

Re: Plot Lowest indicator only at last 10 bars [SOLVED]

Indeed, copy/paste is sometimes a bit too easy but that's how i try to learn it. I'm a real starter.

Should have looked up the meaning of status bar. Changed it and it seems to work better now.

With this a can build further, thanks!

Re: Plot Lowest indicator only at last 10 bars [SOLVED]

When adding, the indicator is not plotted. When reloading the chart 1 or 2 days, then the indicator is (mostly) plotted.
Is there a reason why it's so hard to get that indicator on the chart?

Your formula should plot the same as on your chart isn't? A copy/paste into the editor and after F3, this shows nothing on the chart. That's strange. --- After trying several times and looking at the parameters, it's now shown on the ES chart but when I try on another chart, it's nothing. How comes ...

Re: Plot Lowest indicator only at last 10 bars [SOLVED]

Josh and TJ,

Included an image with the plot of the lowest value. It's plotted constantly. I want it to plot only under the latest x bars. Like the blue line that has been drawn.

In fact it's exact what's on the graph of Josh but when using the formula it does nothing.
Almost there I think.
