Chart range reset

Is there a way to get a chart to keep its range formatting between stops and restarts of MC? It is a small but annoying problem. When I restart MC, I have to go back into scaling and reset all my values. I use a NYSE tick chart with a range of 1400 to -1400 and I have to reset the range with each re...

I have written thousands of lines of code to the IB API and in my opinion the issue is as you stated, MC issues multiple one minute requests. The preferred way of doing it is to calculate the length of time and then request the entire data series. The request states the length bars desired from one ...

Send Bug Reports Dialog box on startup

I keep getting a dialog box telling me there were errors in the previous session and asking if I want to send an email. Aside from the fact that the email address used doesn't seem to be valid, I didn't have any errors in the previous session. Is there a switch (possibly in the registry) that needs ...

I previously asked a question about changing the on-demand feature on an existing chart, received an answer, promply forgot the answer and don't want to re-ask the question. I know the answer is somewhere in the forum but for the life of me cann...

Is there a way to keep MC from re-downloading data that is already in the cache? I was told to always use on-demand for a chart. I use MC to avoid having two data feeds (one IB and one TS) but I would love to speed things up in the initial load. IB can be cranky on session boundaries (ie beginning o...

I have 2 G of ram and 3.06 dual core and it can take an hour for a chart to load from IB. I am getting data only from the first of March and I literally start the chart and go do something else. It too is taking 80 - 100% CPU at times.

E-mini scaling

I am having difficulty getting ESM6 from IB to scale properly. I am getting increments of .10 instead of .25. I have changed the symbol settings scale to 1/4 and tried changing to manual label style with .25 as the increment. I have an indicator that needs the exact number and not a rounded one (.25...

neurotrader I had the same experience with the databases. The good new is that once I figured that out (with your help from previous posts) everything works great. Additionally, MC now loads very quickly as opposed to the previous version where I would start MC and go make coffee waiting for the cha...

I am using the 1230 release and it works great with the exception of the chart time (which I posted in the 1.9 release thread by Stanley). All my custom studies compiled and I have had no problems at all once I got the updated IB datafeed dll off the forum (71.71)

Stanley The dll that Alex posted for the IB datafeed fixed the problem. Everything works fine with the exception of the time on the chart. I am on exchange time no matter what I do. I have created custom sessions, session templates, all to no avail. I can adjust my studies so it is no big deal but i...

When trying to add a symbol from the IB data source, I get timed out repeatedly and never am able to add a symbol. Is anyone else having this problem and if so, did you get by it?
