Re: New Cursor/Pointer Feature

I would REALLY like to see an option to have the tracking cursor only move when I click on the chart and to stay on the same time until I click elsewhere. The fact that it moves all the time makes it very hard for me to correlate simultaneous indicators and prices between multiple windows, especiall...

Persistent Data Gap

Today I had a data gap on several second-based charts for the symbol EURJPY.FXCM (Manually Added as per IQFeed during another issue) from IQFeed. This symbol has been coming in well. Obviously there is a gap in my tick data, so I deleted the data using the quotemanager for the day with the gap, and ...

Still not implemented

I notice that as of version 6.0 this is still an issue. Any idea of when this may be done? I know you guys are busy, but this is a very simple change.

Same problem - no bars showing when backfilled and "not

In Multicharts 6.0 Beta, when I try to use multicharts whilst disconnected from the internet on my notebook computer, thus multicharts is running off a prior authorization and displays "not authorized" and runs in offline mode, Multicharts will NOT display bars on any charts, despite the fact that t...

Datafeed request: MB Trading

MB Trading is a broker for futures and direct-to-ECN forex that offers good spreads on forex. They have an SDK that allows for the reception of real-time and historical data. I use them for trading, and it would be great if I could plot their forex data in MultiCharts. I would have made my own DDE s...

It is true that LastBarOnChart does not work as defined

The LastCalcJDate and LastCalcTime and thus the LastBarOnChart function does not work as it is defined in the help file. LastBarOnChart should return true for the last COMPLETED bar on the chart, but instead it will only return true for the very last bar on the chart, which is usually an OPEN one, n...

I would love to see the inputs grid in the signal settings dialog the full size of the window instead of ridiculously small. It would also be nice if the input names column would remain as wide as I put it or at least default to wide enough to read the whole input name.

global data sharing and synchronization

Are the indicator and signal calculations in MultiCharts run on separate, independent threads? For sharing data between them, would it work to block the dependent indicator/signal with a mutex (in a dll) until the data from the independent indicator became available or would it crash, lock, or stall...

features I'd like added

1. Optimization doesn't lock entire program, just the one chart and only if necessary. MC has a great multi-threaded interface that doesn't slow down the user while it is doing long calculations (unlike TS), with this one glaring exception. 2. There should be an option so that the tracking line only...

Add feature: static tracking line

It would make it far easier to develop trading ideas over multiple windows if the tracking line had an option to only move when the mouse is clicked rather than all the time, much like the global line in TS. Would you please add this as an option. I was able to do this with a hack I created that int...

Please add datafeed for GAIN capital.

It would be very useful for me, and no doubt others, if you could add GAIN capital as a datafeed. I beleive it would be quite easy for you to do, since you already have one for OwnData and MCFX from them. Also, they have an API that allows 7 days of data to be retrieved, and all the rest of the data...

Datafeed API

I think it would be a great idea to create a datafeed API so that we customers with programming experience would be able to add new datafeeds and then upload them to the MultiCharts community. This would be very valuable to us users as well as expand the usabiltiy of MultiCharts, bringing more peopl...
