Hello Support,

Has a time been set for the support of the 32nd scaling for bond futures?

Thanks,

Cliff

Hopefully the full fractional spectrum will be covered. For instance some contracts/options are 1/4 of 1/32,or 1/2 of 1/32,or 1/8ths,etc.
Various exchanges should give full details.

Thanks

Hello traderstuff,

Yes, other fractions such as 1/4, 1/8 etc will be supported in MultiCharts.

Regards.

The situation with the fractional scale is as follows:

Our software engineers are planning to implement various fractional price scales including 1/4 of 1/32, 1/2/ of 1/32 etc. However, they are going to start with the more basic scales and move to the more complicated ones. They are not quite sure if all of those will be implemented at once or gradually.

Best regards.

Hi Marina,

If I may comment on this, the first pass should at least include the 1/32 for the Bond futures and 1/2 of 1/32 for the 10yr Note futures.

All the best,

Cliff

Hi Geoff,

The fractional scales are still not supported and there is no ETA for it.

Try this for Bond price in Fractions

Code: Select all

input: decimalPlaces(2),TxtClr(White),Bonds(32),NumDec(2),FontName("ProggyTiny"),FontSize(8);
var:
  textID(0),
  string1(""),
  Fracl(-1);

if BarNumber = 1 then begin
   TextID = Text_New( date, time, close, " ");
   Text_SetStyle(TextID,1,2);
 
end;
if lastBarOnChart.p then begin
    If datacompression>=1 then Value2=AddTime(Time,BarInterval)
                        else Value2=AddTime(Time,1);
  If Fracl<0 then begin
    If Bonds=0 then Fracl=Text_New(D,Value2,C,"-"+NumToStr(c, numdec))
               Else Fracl=Text_New(D,Value2,C,"-"+NumToStr(IntPortion(c),0)+"~"+NumToStr(Bonds*FracPortion(C),0));
  end
  else begin
       Text_SetLocation(Fracl,D,Value2,C);
       If Bonds=0 then Text_SetString(Fracl, "-"+NumToStr(c, numdec));
   
end;
end;

Hi guys,

Just a quick update.

The version that has fraction price scales implemented will be out in about 1 week's time. It will be a 5.0 beta 1.

Meanwhile, tomorrow we are rolling out the official 4.0 release.
