Orders limited to 65,000 shares?

Postby fbertram » 29 Dec 2014

Dear MultiCharts fans,

I am using PortfolioTrader to trade on daily data. I am retrieving data through MB Trading and am submitting orders through IB Gateway. My orders are generated by the trading signal and then resized through the MM signal using pmms_strategy_set_entry_contracts. It seems that trades are limited to a maximum of 65,000 shares. Has anybody else seen this issue? Are there any possible workarounds?

Thank you,
best regards, Felix

Right click the Strategy. Select Properties. Change the Maximum shares/contracts per position to whatever your liking is.

Hi MATricks,

thanks a lot for your hint. I can see the option you described, when adding my signal to a chart. Unfortunately, I am using Portfolio Trader - does the same option exist there? If so, how do I get to it? If not, is there a workaround?

Thank you,
best regards, Felix

never mind... found it. I expected the option to be under the signal and not the strategy.

Cheers, Felix
