Yes Henry, for exemple Ctrl+D , then i can send this hotkey from My EL code at the end of my trading day (no more quotes for this day)
Smoky, we will have it added in MultiCharts 12.0 Release.



You might as well add a scheduler to it. eg. auto-flush every day at 5:45 pm.

Re: MC12 Beta Indicator disappearing

Can you try a name with the underscore "_" as the prefix?
The name will be in the front; You do not have to scroll to find the indicator.

Re: Moving average only starts plotting lates than expected

It has to do with MaxBarsBack.

The chart will only start calculating indicators and plotting after a sufficient number of bars has been loaded.

Re: Counting bars/days since condition=true

Ok Barstatus(0-2): 0:Open,1:Intrabar,2:Close. As this strategy is applied to Daily Bars with IntrabarCalculation I dont get your point here. Your mind is focused on a "Daily" strategy, but in fact, your logic is an intra-day one, because you are making intra-day evaluations and decisions....

Re: Strategy questions

I would suggest you to break down the questions into individual threads.

If you ask a general question, you will get a general answer.

If you ask a specific question, you will get a specific answer.

If you ask a big question, you might not get any response. :-D

Re: MC stops working.

Thanks Anna. I will do that. For a 2nd day I managed to keep Avast turned off in the services folder all day and MC 64 bit ran all day. So now what I will do is I will toggle Avast back and forth with a day on and a day off to see if a consistent pattern of MC crashes occurs. If I get a crash while...
