Running Strategies from Scanner

Postby momentum » 05 Feb 2012

I would like to run the same strategy on a number of stocks. These work on daily data and only generate signals from time to time so don't want to use resources to run hundreds of charts with strategies. Is there a way to achieve this through Scanner or otherwise?

TIA

Hello Momentum,

Unfortunately that is not possible to run a signal in the Real-time Market scanner at the moment.
The indicator calculations in the scanner window can be based only on the main data series, so that is not posssible to reference a number of symbols from the scanner directly.

Henry,

this might be something you want to consider for further revisions. Since OOEL you can issue orders from indicators within TS - also if they are running in Radarscreen.

This would be a boost for the MC scanner and make it even more useful.

Thank you for your suggestion.
We have already considered this request and are going to implement this feature in one of the future versions of MultiCharts.
