Multicharts - Custom Indicators and STRATEGIES

Postby mohi4u » 15 Oct 2012

Hello,

I have 5 below queries for Multicharts 8 and Multicharts Net.

1- How do I delete my own custom indicator or strategy in Multicharts 8 and MC Net versions? (I could not find that option in Power Editor).

2- I have IQFeed datafeed connected to Multicharts. With IQFeed, I can download 120 days of tick data after market hours. I have Multicharts installed on 2 computers, even though I connect only one at a time. My query is as follows.
Once I download 120 days of tick data for any instrument on my home computer, how can I export this data into another computer in my office, where I have Multicharts installed?
(In this way, I will not have download 120 days of tick data again and again on 2 different computers).

3- I own Multicharts and Multicharts NET versions. My query is do these 2 different products provided by Multicharts (if installed on same computer) use the same database or 2 different databases?
If I download 120 days of tick data with IQFeed into Multicharts 8, will I have to download 120 days of tick data once again, for Multicharts NET on the same computer.

4- What is the location of the MC Database on Windows 7 OS, where the tick data for several instruments is downloaded?

5- NT has a Strategy Analyzer, where I can edit and create new strategies on NT provided indicators.
I there anything like Strategy Analyzer in Multicharts, to create my own custom strategies, on Multicharts provided indicators?

Thanks & Regards,
Mohi

From PowerLanguage Editor,

simply highlight the indicator and press delete.

The 2 programs operate independently; they use their own database.

The database format is the same, you can copy the database from one file directory to the other.
