Re: expand scale to analysis techniques

After further testing with MultiCharts 8.8, I have noticed that the previously posted indicator called "scaling_lines_hi_lo_a.pla" which combines two plots within a single indicator works properly under certain conditions. I have observed that when "Format Instrument > Scaling > Scaling Range" is se...

I forgot to mention in my previous post that all of my tests were conducted in MultiCharts version 8.8. I apologize in advance in case there is a documented bug or bugfix which I have not yet learned about. In case someone discovers that my second example works in a newer version of MultiCharts plea...

Re: expand scale to analysis techniques

I have so far not been able to reproduce the results shown above with a single indicator. It seemed logical to me that only one indicator should be needed which contains two plots, instead of two indicators which each contain one plot. Here is the code which does not seem to work as expected. I hope...

Both indicators are intended to be applied to the same chart and the same data series at the sa...

Hello Gero65, I modified your code slightly based on an old post by Marina Pashkova which dates back to 2008: https://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?t=5608 While no errors are produced in the compiler or at runtime, there does not seem to be any information in the array other than a ze...

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?

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,...
