Same Symbol/Contract - Multiple Data Series

Postby lantama » 05 Oct 2008

Hi,
I am already using MC, but I need a function to plot the same contract in different self defined sessions. Example:

FDAX DEC 08.

08:00 AM - 02:00 PM
02:00PM - 10:00 PM
08:00 AM - 10:00 PM

I do not see any feature handling this. Any ideas how to get this working?

Thanks,
lantama

You can setup a custom session which will be used when you select "Regurlar" in the symbol setup. But you are only going to get one bite at the apple. Your selection will either be 24hour or Regular ( custom session) you will not be able to simulataneously plot several custom different sessions as I understand it.

Hi Dwar,
yeah exactly. But I would need to run different session on one symbol simutanesly. 2 MCs is not an option for me.

Cheers

Dear Lantama,

Just as Jerry pointed out, in the current version of MC, you can plot 24-hour and a custom session at the same time. You can only one set-up for a custom session, though.

In future, we are planning to make it possible to have several custom sessions for the same symbol at the same time. At this point, however, I don't have any ETA as to when this feature will be implemented.

Regards.
