What i am missing in MC

Postby radekj » 18 Jan 2009

1. Direct reference to instruments in EL, ex.:
close("qqqq"); High("msft"); //without putting them on chart or using GV

2. Possibility to get value of calculation in higher time frames, ex.:

value = Compression(MA(close, 20), 60min); // return on 5min bar value for MA on 60min basis for current bar (with time synchronization between time series)

3. Built-in Playback

Funny enough, I had same thoughts recently, and I thought that MC can really stand out against its competition if it had functionality you are refering. Lets hope our thoughts reach creators of MC.

You can do all of this in AB. Hopefully MC will catch up.

Exact this is the reason why i use AB for analysis and bar replay.

But MC has great (best) Charting and data vendor handling and EL compatibility.

I would prefere MC for doing all my tasks, so i waiting for this functionality.

To be more specific, "Built in playback that matches the bars exactly as they occured during the live trading session regardless of the speed of replay". I would assume everyone agrees.
