How to make a running record of signals?

How to make a running record of signals?

for example, I want to know when the stochastic hits 80 or 20.

is it possible for MC to output this information to a txt file (or a window) every time this condition is met ?

I want this information in a running record, so the next signal can append to the end of the file.

Your help is appreciated.

You will need to write an indicator (with Print) to do this.

Where does print output the information?

The print statement outputs to the output tab of PLEditor. If you can't see an output tab check it's enabled under the view menu. Very handy feature. :)

I'm not 100% sure on the full syntax of "Print" but it's something like:

Print(var, var, ...);

where "var" is a variable or string. Variables can have optinal formatting options appended to them. Example:

Print("Bar=", BarNumber:6:0, " Price=", MyPrice:7:4);

where 6 and 7 are the total width and 0 and 4 are the decimal places.

I believe you can also write files in PL but haven't actually tried that. Maybe it only works on TS? Someone?

Okay I see... Nice, I was aware of an output from PL, but didn't know that MultiCharts while running was capable of printing to that output window.

I have made the following code:

Code: Select all

if h > h[1] then print( h, ">", h[1] );
if l < l[1] then print( l, "<" , l[1] );


I am running this on a 1min chart.

now, where can I find the output log ?

can I have it continuously displayed and updated on the screen ?


Many thanks for your help.

May I suggest to TSSUPPORT to make the output window part of the wsp ?
