Mark

You think maybe your being a bit abrasive??

Based on all your complaints and dissatisfaction, I think it’s time you start developing your own custom platform.

Fast turnaround. Great job to you and MC team!

That makes sense. Just didn’t want to look like an idiot. It was actually an alert configuration problem. I changed check alert conditions from “On bar close” to “Every Tick” which allowed it to work on one second chart.

Is there a simple way to send an SMS email alert, in the event of data feed outage?

Was thinking maybe something event driven within the script that monitors tick bar movement and sends the alert after so many seconds of inactivity

Isn't the MC .NET version proprietary in its own way? I mean like dependent on internalized MC functions, libraries, etc... In other words if I wanted to transfer MC C# code to an institutional grade platform like Deltix for example, it would require drastic modification.
