Hi liang323,

The most important feature we are working on now is a scanner. It will be included into MC by the end of July - beginning of August.

That MC version will also include 2 modes for autotrading: with and without the feedback from the broker.

As for the nearest MC release, it will be available next week. It will have the bugs in autotrading fixed and a number of minor features added. A complete list will be available when the release is out.

Thank for the update Marina!

btw, can we expect new features like futures rollover(continuous futures symbol), trade directly from chart, and built-in data playback any time soon?

and regarding Autotrading with broker feedback, what does this feature mean?

thanks

I can't say that these features will be implemented soon. But were are going to introduce them later this year.

and regarding Autotrading with broker feedback, what does this feature mean?


Right now, there is a certain desynchronization b/w the arrows on the chart and the filled orders in TWS. For example, certain conditions might be met on a dataseries which is based on trades in MultiCharts. But the broker executes orders based on bid or ask prices, so the conditions met on the chart won't necessarily be met on the broker's end. And vice versa.

In autotrading with the feedback this problem will be eliminated. Arrows on the chart will be plotted only after the confirmation from a broker is received. This way the arrows the chart will match the real situation on the broker's end.
