Strategy Disappears from Chart While Active

Postby momentum » 08 Feb 2007

Twice, the strategy (signal) I was using on a chart disappeared without human intervention.

Dear momentum,

Please, could you tell me in details what do you mean by saying "disappeared"?

The strategy no longer appears in the Format Objects SIGNALS tab and previous signals on the chart are no longer there

Is the problem reproducible? If this is a case then let us know how to reproduce it please.

Not sure. I'll have to wait until it happens again.

Indicator disappeared

Postby mustbecrap » 09 Feb 2007

I have seen the same.... previously when this has happened it had been after a fault that caused a freezing of the program. When I would reopen the program as many as 70% of indicators were missing off the charts.. I would usually end up recompiling all the indicators as they would now appear as uncompiled.

Today I simply went to adjust the size of a chart and the indicator disappeared... It said it was there but it wasnt. It was still appearing on some other charts so I knew it wasn't a compile issue... Anyway I eventually had to remove the indicator and reattach and problem solved....

I haven't been able to reproduce it

My current "guess" is that the problem is caused by a conflict with indicators that come from an .eld translation and that have "commentary" as part of the indicator. I don't have time now to test this extensively.

Again

Postby mustbecrap » 09 Feb 2007

It just happened again... different chart... different indicator... I could not get it back and had to delete the chart and redo it...

It disappears the moment I pressed the "expand" button at the top of the screen....

Last time it was when I was simple resizing, this time when I was doing a similar function...

maybe that will help to track it down

I do not have this issue when I resize. I only lose SIGNALS but have not had a recurrence of the issue since I deleted inficators with complex COMMENTARY logic added.

Perhaps the issue is related to the fact that COMMENTARIES are a TS tool that requires an ALERT COMMENTARY window that MC does not have and instead of displaying, something gets deletrd that conflicts.
