Postby phoeniks » 01 Mar 2015

As a IB customer i downloaded the MC.net for TWS.

Now i want to code a strategy and backtest it.

Hello phoeniks,

MultiCharts .NET is oriented to experienced programmers. In case you have any questions regarding C# coding we recommend referencing MSDN for information. Interfaces and classes available in MultiCharts .Net are described in MC .Net help file (PowerLanguage .Net Editor->Help tab-> PowerLanguage .Net Help). You can also find the code examples in the source code of the prebuilt MultiCharts studies (PowerLanguage .Net Editor->File tab->Open).

MultiCharts .NET Programming guide that contains important and useful information not only for beginners but for experienced MC .Net users as well. This is the recommended "Getting started for programming in MultiCharts .Net": https://www.multicharts.com/downloads/M ... e-v1.0.pdf

Hello phoeniks,

Backtesting starts as soon as you apply a signal to the chart.
Here is how to apply a signal to a chart:
