How to launch a strategy on hundreds stocks ​

Postby Albon » 13 Sep 2012

Hello,
I just start with MC I bought few days ago.
I have a problem for which I have not found the answer in the manuals.
How to launch a strategy on a selection of hundreds stocks ​without opening all the graphs and implement the strategy on each graph?
Regards from France

Hello Albon,

Portfolio trading has not been implemented yet.
You need to apply a strategy to each chart you need to trade and enable automated order execution on it.

Hello Henry,

Thanks for your replay.
Let me explain what I understand : if I want to apply a strategy to all the stocks of the SP500, I have open 500 charts and apply my strategy on each chart waiting for a signal !
My english is not very reliable, so I hope I misunderstand.

Yes that is correct. You can apply a strategy to one chart and then copy/paste it (File->Copy Window/File->Paste Window), then modify the chart the way you need.
You can also create a study template

Is there no way to do this with the scanner?

Thanks MAtricks for your point but I think with scanner it's only possible to select stocks witch answers to an indicator. Then it needs to manually launch the signal on the selected stocks.
Nevertheless I think it's the only way to do... but it's not automatic trading!

Hello Henry,
I have you got an approximate date for the Portfolio trading implementation ?

Backtesting/Trading is not possible with the scanner.

There is no ETA for implementation of this functionality yet.

You can do that from MultiCharts .NET - by trading directly from the script.

Would that script need to be applied to a chart, like Albon's quote mentions, or can that script also be run from the Market Scanner?

JoshM, you can run such script from the Market Scanner as well. Please check how to do that.
