E-mini SP500 futures quotes with TT feed

Postby agauthe » 05 Jan 2012

E-mini SP500 futures (ES) quotes with TT feed are multiplied by 100 when displayed in MCDT (in the DOM for example). I tried with other software, with the same feed, and the price is displayed correctly.

Am I missing something ? Is there a way in MCDT to display the price correctly ?

Hello Agauthe.
Trading Technologies price multiplier was implemented in MultiCharts 7.2 beta.
Please make sure you are running this version or higher.

Each symbol can be multiplied with a multiplier at the end of Description *Root* in Symbol Dictionary for TT (Quote Manager->Tools->Symbol dictionary->Data Sorce->TT).
For example, E-mini S&p 500 *0.01 (always insert a period, not a comma).
Prices will then be converted for TT symbols in OPT and on the chart.
This works only for futures, prices for data already in the database are not corrected.

Have you created a new DOM window after making the changes?
Please describe what do you mean by "a strange behavior".

By strange behavior, I mean that in the DOM E-mini SP500 (ES) quote are by increment of 25 (1275, 1250, 1225.. ) instead of 0.25 (1275, 1274.75, 1274.50)

Please re-add the symbol from the data source to get the proper symbol settings.
In the Quote manager please go to Instrument tab->Add symbol->From data source-> TT.
After that-create a new DOM window.
