Re: [Advanced Topic] Programming DLL

When it is stated that PLKit.dll is required to build a dll which works with Multicharts64, should I assume that even a dll which does not make use of any internal MultiCharts or Powerlanguage functions must be built against PLKit.dll if I wish to call it from within PowerLanguage? Using a tool like...

Re: handle GlobalServer expired contracts in Custom Futures?

My tests indicate that when using the futures template in GlobalServer, one cannot rename an expired symbol, but I was able to rename an unexpired symbol manually to match the format that you previously suggested. I don't yet know what will happen to that symbol after it expires, that should be inte...

Re: handle Global Server expired contracts in Custom Futures

Thank you for your suggestion. Unless I am mistaken, the problem is that when using the futures template in GlobalServer there is apparently no way to manually redefine the current symbol format for unexpired futures contracts, and also no way to redefine the historical symbol format for expired fut...

handle GlobalServer expired contracts in Custom Futures?

The excellent "Custom Continuous Futures" feature in MultiCharts clearly has the potential to utilize GlobalServer data in theory, but in practice there seems to be a small challenge which may need to be resolved. Since the most recent contract always needs to be present, at the time of this writing...

ZenFire (part four)

Everybody has a different approach to trading and analysis. For me, I prefer not to try to do all of my analysis and trading on the same computer. However, that can cause datafeed costs to skyrocket if one is not very careful about implementation. Computers may not be as expensive as datafeed costs,...

I have also attached an example of some of my settings in QuoteManager for 8 futures symbols. Maybe they are not "perfect" settings, but so far I have not noticed any problems. It shows among other things how one can use the "as is" setting for YM, and a different multiplier for 6J than for 6E, and ...

In QuoteManager, one may need to define the correct sessions, pt values, etc. for each symbol that one wants to use in MultiCharts, but QuoteManager provides a lot of "expert-level" flexibility when it comes to allowing one to reduce annual datafeed costs. In my case, I was able to define my symbol ...

Could the intriguing discrepency described above have anything to do with "tsShaper"? Somewhere here I found a very nice discussion about it, including how various registry settings can be used to control how much volume gets redistributed across bars whenever "shaping" is necessary. According to th...

Is MultiCharts compatible with TSDataHub? Since MultiCharts allows a separate symbol to be used for historical and realtime data, will a GlobalServer symbol that is connected to TSDataHub Client work for both historical and realtime data without problems?

Quote Manager already does a great job collecting realtime data for fields like "UpTicks" and "DownTicks" for intraday resolution such as "1 min" bars. Here is a question: When Quote Manager is used with TS, even though there is a field for "UnchTicks" in Quote Manager, it seems to receive no data d...

TS Support currently gives people the freedom to maintain their own database of market data, which I believe is a unique and very valuable advantage.
