Hi ts2mc,

In MultiCharts beta 3, you will be able to apply different strategies to different symbols within a portfolio. I am attaching a screenshot to show you what it will look like.

In the meantime, what you can do is specify the symbol to which you want a specific signal to be applied right in the signal's code

Code: Select all

if symbolname = "ES #F" then
<signal text>
