MultiCharts doesn't support warrants.
MutliChart support warrants with e-signal, However, For IB, Their API securtiy code format is: SYMBOL-EXCHANGE-TYPE
SYMBOL is the same as the symbol column as displayed in TWS while under symbol mode
EXCHANGE (optional) is the exchange in TWS while under symbol mode
TYPE (optional) is one the following:
STK - stocks, FUT - futures, FOP - options on futures, OPT - options, IND - indexes, CASH -cash (ideal FX) WAR- warrant
The data manager in MC allows us to choose all the TYPE in the menu except -WAR. and it do not allow us to type it mannully.
Warrants in most of the Asian country is very easy to support. unlike option and future, no special interface needed for a series of expiry month or strike price or else. Just treat it as a normal stock. what it need is just add three words "-WAR" at the back of the code that sent to IB and it is all done~!, IB will sent back the data just like other stocks. Just a minute of work, and it is so tiny that the time for typing this item in the timetable or to do list is already enough to fix it. It just like a typo-mistake, it just, missing a word in the drawdown menu and the corresponding code "-WAR" that sent to IB! Three letters only...
Please~! Please~! Please fix it!
