Big Point Value allows adjusting the Lot size and cannot be set from the code. Please, go to File -> New -> QuoteManager -> right-click on the symbol -> Edit Symbol -> Settings tab -> Big Point Value.

Re: CANNOT EXECUTE STOPS WHEN BACK TESTING

Hello, khalaad! The symbols from OANDA are coming with Big Point Value = 1. 1 in MultiCharts = 1 contract. But as far as OANDA symbols are traded in lots it’s advisable to change the Big Point Value according to the lot size on your account. For example, if the lot size on your account is 10000, ple...

Re: Renko - difference between Fixed Price and Point [SOLVED]

Hello, Automeq! In MultiCharts a point is viewed as the minimal price change which can be calculated as Min Move multiplied by Price Scale (those are symbol parameters that can be found in QuoteManager -> right-click on the symbol -> Settings tab), while a tick is considered to be any price change.
