By "Data Window" do you mean what is called "Raw Data" in Quotetracker and "Time and Sales" in most other charting applications?

Does this Custom basket symbols also mean native Spread Charts/Symbols?

Thanks

It also would be very helpful to set a breakpoint for a symbol so that no data before this breakpoint and (if possible) all data behind this breakpoint will be updated with new data from the datavendor (if it supports backfilling).

This would make it possible to construct continious contracts with custom roll-dates.

For adjusting the old data backwards also a Modifying Data Feature (like in GlobalServer) would be nice. To adjust bigger amounts of data outside MC is always very painful and needs export and reimport.

1. Online/Offline Indicator will show if you are working in the Offline or Online mode

2. Data Window will show a grid with quotes

3. SVN is a source repository

Spread Charts/Symbols is a custom basket subset

Hi Joerg,

Could you please specify why you would need that?

Thank you!

Hi Marina,

yes, of course: It´s all about building cont. contracts where the history of former contracts is adjusted to the price level of the current one. For trading systems this seems to be the best practice for getting consistent signals.

With breakpoints it would be possible to reload just data behind of the roll date. Otherwise you overwrite parts of the data of the old contract while reloading and destroy the history. You get a price-gap somewhere in the history which you can´t correct without modifying data.
To save reloading would mean to be online exactly on the close of the last active trading day of the old contract or another chooses roll date (for getting all of it´s data) and afterwards don´t reload anymore because you nearly always would overwrite the old contract or don´t get the whole new contract.

Modifying data would allow to adjust data up to the date I like (it differes from market to market).

All in all it would make custom cont. contracts possible.

What do you think?

Thanks a lot

Joerg

Hi Joerg,

We think that it's a good idea definitely worth considering. We'll add it to our to-do list.

Regards.

Yes but is this basket native or synthetic?

In MC you can do only synthetic, but I would need native Spread Charts/Symbols, e.g. from IB.

If you use TS8 as data source for MC, you already have custom continuous contracts.

You can already create your own spread charts\custom basket symbols using an indicator showing the difference between different data series in a multi-symbol chart.

My preference would be for a data window similar to TS8's Time & Sales. This is very useful for getting a feel for momentum, and is a fairly basic feature for a charting platform and should've already been implemented.

IMO a Trade Manager should be higher than all of these on the priority list though!

synthetic is not NATIVE ;)

Postby dupl » 15 Jan 2009

Again! There is a difference between native and synthetic spreads/combinations/baskets!

I need native!
People have very often problems to differentiate this fact. Of course synthetic spreads/combinations/baskets are possible in a lot of programms... but not native spreads/combinations/baskets! :idea:

The difference. Native is independent from synthetic.
