Description

I need to create a script that writes each trade into a csv file that goes to my trading accounting program. So far, I can get all the info (entry price, exit price, entry date, exit date, symbol name, quantity, long/short) needed from EasyLanguage, except actual commission charged by the broker for a specific trade. Not the commission set in Strategy Properties.

The reason I need to create this script is because my brokers do not have the ability to match opening and closing trades. If you do a lot of auto trades, it is extremely tedious to match opening and closing trades manually.

Please create an EasyLanguage keyword to get the actual commission charged by the broker for a specific trade. I am sure many MC users need this keyword. It is a definite time saver.

Steps to reproduce this issue

This is a critical feature request.

The current options with commissions in MultiCharts are very limited and old-fashioned based on a fixed amount per trade, for every trade. Almost every broker currently already has tier commissions depending on the amount of transactions per time period.
It's time MultiCharts implements the commissions like the broker do.

Complex commissions are availble in settings since MC 8.5.
