MC to show orders done by an ext. application/ Possible?

Postby arjfca » 27 Mar 2012

Hello

My broker is IB and I'm sending my orders via Excel and API. It allow me to get some function not available from MC yet.

Is it possible to use MC to read and report on a chart the transactions that I had done?

Hello Martin,

The orders placed by third party applications to IB TWS should be shown in MultiCharts in case you have setup the symbol mapping correctly.
Please also make sure that the options "Show historical orders, active orders and open positions" are enabled in Format->Chart trading.

When I place orders onto a TT Server using a separate app, they show up in MultiCharts when I'm connected. It's pretty cool.
