Re: Change Format of mails generated by Alert function?

Dave, Thank you for the reply. I have found a workaround to read the MessageCenter_Trace log file from MC with a 3rd-party application, Corner Bowl ( mentioned by another user of the forum). Corner Bowl can interpret the message, if necessary change the format and send notifications as needed (email...

Change Format of mails generated by Alert function?

Hi, I try to forward mails to an SMS gateway (Clickatell) which reads the body of the mail for parameters to generate an SMS. Mails are sent by MC but there are a lot of paramaters in the body that prevent the SMS gateway from reading it correctly. (The gateway interprets commands using variable nam...

Hi Steven,

I have no problem with history for SPX via CME. Downloading from the Globex option is no problem either.

I also remember the message from IB, but I did not take any special action with regard to that.

TJ, Thanks for your reply. I already suggested to E-mini Watch to compile the indicator with a multicharts trial version. (Even promised to put in praise for their work among the MC community :wink: ) I am awaiting their response now. I like the suggestion to ask TSSuport to recompile it, but am afr...

Trailing stop problem with auto trading in MC 5 beta3

I am testing auto trading with IB in MC5 beta3, using a trailing stop. When the entry order is filled, the first trailing stop is set alright in TWS. However it does not update in IB until the next bar. This behaviour is strange as the setdollartrading is supposed to be evaluated at every tick. Neit...
