bug?

I have MultiCharts64 Version 12.0 Release (Build 18184). Recently, I started to experience a problem: I do a system backtest, then I double click on the best combination of parameters ( so those parameters are transferred to the system inputs). Sometimes, that window that shows the system with the n...

Rithmic data to IB orders

I like Rithmic data better then IB's. I opened a chart of CLM7 with Rithmic data and placed a signal on it with on my IB account. When I tried to run in autotrading, I got an error message saying that the symbol is not recognised by Interactive Brokers. What should I do?

bug on the editor?

I tried to use "find and replace" function in the power editor and if I use it by clicking one by one it's ok but if I try to use "replace all" the computer looses itself in what looks like a bad loop and I have to shut down the editor to get out of that loop. Looks like a bug to me, but it might be...

hibrid auto and manual trading.

I wrote a signal that takes info from the broker on my account equity, market position and avgentryprice then sends a stop order that will close any position if my daily loss limit is reached. If I use it together with a order generating signal it autotrades just fine. My wish is to trade discretion...

erase a trendline [SOLVED]

I use tl_new_bn to draw a new trendline for each new bar with a higher low. How can I erase the older intermediate trendlines, so that my historical chart will keep only the the last trend lines that respect the condition? vars:tlup(L); condition1=L>L[1]; if condition1 then begin tlup=tl_new_bn(barn...

order levels shown on chart

in autotrading I cannot find the place to make the orders visible on the chart.
I see only the levels where my signal actually entered or exited but I miss the order levels (dotted lines) that I was seeing in the older MC versions. Please let me know how to enable them.

excellent idea; if I then choose not to expand the scale to indicators (in the instrument menu), the zero values will not show!

Re: erasing and redrawing a retracement area square [SOLVED]

Thanks for your reply. Here is a picture of my chart: http://screencast.com/t/AHvAuIge65o The green area squares are drawn each time a new high in the upswing happens. I need only the latest ones in the upswings shown, not all of them. Here is my code: Inputs:tv(0.01); vars: h00(H),h00bn(1),L00bn(1)...

From past history I calculate a projected retracement area from the current upswing and I need it to be redrawn every time this upswing has a new high. The problem I do not know how to solve is how to erase the old plot when a new upswing high is happening - I need to see only the current projected ...
