Re: Strategy: where do I see the order the system is working

Okay, so what we do is add some code to your system to post a message to the screen regarding the system's status. As shown below, we create a string variable called MessageText and we assign it a value based on whatever the status of our system is (i.e., working an order, long, short, etc.). At th...

Re: Strategy: where do I see the order the system is working

One thing I have learned in using Multicharts to trade systems in real time (not automated systems, but to generate signals), is that you have to write additional code to let you know what orders to work - i.e., put a line of text saying something like "Working to buy 100 shares @ 55.25" ...

Re: Strategy: where do I see the order the system is working

Hello HeiBeh, Unfortunately there is no such functionality in MultiCharts at the moment. You may want to submit a feature request to the Project Management of our web site so other users can vote for it: m Well, that's rather disappointing - to say the least. I am now on Multicharts 8 and I still w...

Strategy: where do I see the order the system is working on?

I am running a couple of strategies on end of day data: where do I see what order the strategy is currently working ? I am not talking LIVE orders with a broker, I am talking order(s) the strategy is currently working on INTERNALLY. Those are of course the ones I would then place manually with a bro...

Stop <> Stop Close Only

I see that replacing a stop order such as: Sell("SCLExit") next bar at Value3 stop; with a stop close only order such as: Sell("SCLExit") next bar at Value3 stop close only; is not a straightforward as I hoped it would be, since it does not compile. Am I missing something or do I...

Price multiplier in QM - how to change ?

I am trying to change the price multiplier on some ASCII mapping data imported previously. I tried to right-click on that file, import the data once again and change the price multiplier while doing so - but whatever I do this never seems to be reflected in the MC chart data - it appears unchanged ....

No one ? Okay, so that means every time I am adding a new symbol to my directory of ASCII files I have to fire up Quotemanger and go THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS AGAIN of declaring a directoy as ASCII mapping ? That can't be right, can it ? ...

ASCII mapping - how do you add symbols ?

I successfully managed to specify a ASCII mapping - directory in QM, import the data and plot those on a daily ongoing basis. Now I want to add another symbol in this directory to my universe. I did this using Add manually in QM and then import data, and it also showed up in MC later on. However, th...

Active orders - where are they ?

First of, let me say I just ported some legacy TS2k code to MC and all is well. Good stuff ! I like it ... Now my question: I searched everywhere for an answer, but could not find it. When I have a strategy active in a chart, where could I look up the order the strategy is working ? I can see when t...
