geizer: Thanks for the heads-up. I had thought so, as well. I believe I had seen past posts discussing the bug. Crazy enough (and maybe I am), after reading your reply to my query, I rechecked the version of MC (I am running MC 6 beta 3), created a new chart to see if the problem persisted, and of c...

backwards candle colors in beta 3

I am confronted with an unusual situation. I recently upgraded from MC 5.5 to 6 beta 3. I successfully imported all my studies, signals, and existing charts with embedded indicators. Everything carried over flawlessly (so far). However, when I create a new chart in beta 3, the default candle colors ...

To all: I can confirm this. I also format my candles in the "green up, red down" style. After installing MC6 b2, and opening previously saved charts created by MC 5.5 (Build2723) and earlier versions, I found that both the original charts opened in the bar chart style, and that changing to candles r...

import MC4.0 PowerLanguage into TS2000i EasyLanguage

To all:

I have been successful in importing my old TS2000i EasyLanguage studies into MC4 PowerLanguage.

Is there a way to export my latest MC studies into my old TS2000i? I have tried a straight IMPORT, but TS does not recognize the MC file.

Any help is appreciated in advance.

Each time I have filled out the user and email information in the web form, I am told I should receive an email for the follow on download, as I have gotten from previous downloads.

real time chart time scale off?

To all: I use Multicharts 3.0 with real time data from IB and historical data from Pinnacle Data in ASCII format. I track and trade gold, the 10y Note, crude oil, and the E-Mini S&P500 on five minute charts in real time. I use the same settings on my home PC and the one at work. Yesterday, I noticed...

ASCII import

Hey, sptrader: Thanks for the reply. My symbols are already there, as part of the data download process. I see all 89 of them in Quote Manager, in the Futures category and the Undefined exchange list, since this data is for historical continuous contracts. Everything seems to go fine until I want to...

no luck with ASCII mapping

To all: I am trying to use ASCII-format data in MC 3.0. I download EOD data from Pinnacle and use it in Metastock in MS format, and the Pinnacle software will also generate ASCII for the same futures contracts. I run MC Quote Manager, am told that the ASCII data has been mapped, I then import the AS...

cannot see daily bars

Hello all! I am new to MultiCharts, but have been using TS 2000i and MetaStock for many years, so I am comfortable with programs such as these. I use EOD data from Pinnacle, and know this data works in TS and MS, but when I try to generate a candlestick chart of daily data in MultiCharts, the chart ...
