Re: Variable Assignment is Distorting Values

Hi Anna, I don't think I understand. You seem to be blaming the function's series/simple attribute, but the function is used in both cases (in one case the function is used when assigning the variable, and the second one the function itself is used, as you correctly note), so I don't understand why ...

Re: Don't Use Multicharts with MBTrading

Hi Anna, I am sorry to differ with you, but you said that I am giving "negative feedback" of the staff in this thread, and I don't think that's what I was doing. I really wrote this post to discuss the issue and see if anyone else experiences it, and in order to do so, the tortuously long ...

Re: Don't Use Multicharts with MBTrading

Hey rrams, This is really useful to know; thank you for your reply. Have you had that 'manual order' thing happen too? I wasn't aware of these dynamics on the MBTrading side, and the engineers don't share any such details with me, though I wish they would if applicable to my situation. I think I mig...

Re: Don't Use Multicharts with MBTrading

Hi TJ, Thank you for your response, but you seem to skip the part where I mention using a standalone print signal that MC themselves created for analyzing the situation. That signal stops calculating/outputting in the manner I describe above (usually after the first trade of the day has been made). ...

Don't Use Multicharts with MBTrading

Hi guys, I've been experiencing some major issues using MB Trading's brokerage service with MC since well into last year, and I was curious if anyone else out there uses MBTrading and has experienced the same thing and perhaps found a solution. I've been told at some points by MC tech support that I...

Variable Assignment is Distorting Values

Hi guys, Came across a weird issue where assigning a value to a variable seems to distort the past values of that value when these past values are referenced. The first batch of code below outputs values different from the values output by the second batch of code, and I have no idea why. vars: Band...

Rare Spikes in Output

Hi all, I came across a weird occurrence where a print statement of mine (placed directly after my order entry statement, so as to generate the date and time of orders) was triggered in instances in which no trade showed up at that date and time on the backtest. Such an occurrence was very rare give...

Will inserting a print statement after stipulating a buy order slow the buy order down? [SOLVED]

Hi guys, I'd like to deploy some diagnostic print statements to examine the data and conditions that lead to my order entries during autotrading. However, execution speed and memory usage is somewhat of a concern for me, so I wanted to pose the following question: When my PL script stipulates a buy ...

Export/Import Issues, red checkmarks, and "Archive is Empty" error

Hi all, I've written a bunch of successfully compiled code, but for some reason, when I export it to a PLA and then import it on another computer, it tells me that the archive is empty. This has happened in the past, but usually I can fix it by re-exporting and re-importing. Not this time. I can't f...

Pmms get strategy named num function

Hi guys, For the life of me, I cannot get the above function to work for me. I have a Portfolio Trader workspace loaded up with 1 strategy utilizing 2 signals (one an entry, the other an exit). The entry signal has a variable called "value1" that, for the sake of ease, I set equal to 2. I ...

Re: Portfolio Trader - Set Max Open Position [SOLVED]

Hi Henry, Hello No Erocla, There is no specific reserved word for setting a max number of open positions, but you can deny sending any new orders once Portfolio_CurrentEntries (combined number of entries currently open within a portfolio) reaches a certain value. Please see PMM_Keywords for more det...

[Portfolio] Can someone please explain these default default MC MM signals?

I have a Portfolio Trader workspace containing strategies for various instruments, and each one of these strategies contains multiple signals for entering and exiting both long and short positions for these respective instruments. I only wish to execute orders when I have no other open positions (so...
