Add the ability to auto-trade a portfolio of stocks

Go to the next open issue

When your trading a very specific automated trading strategy you often need to scan a large number of stocks to find a stock that matches the right pattern. Currently this isn't possible in MultiCharts as you'd have to open 100s - 1000s of charts and set them all to auto trade.

What would work much better is if we had the option to auto trade a portfolio of stocks, this functionality could be added to the Market Scanner as it already has the ability to add groups of stocks and add "studies" to them. And it feels like it fits with the filtering functionality of the Market Scanner.

Multi currency support is very important for portfolio trading. Please add it. See also: http://www.multicharts.com/pm/viewissue.php?issue_no=MC-925
I hope Portfolio trading is not only limited to stocks. Forex and futures are important too.

When looking for swingtrading opportunities the signals and opportunities tend to cluster (several stocks signals at the same time).
In this case I would like to be able to write a strategy/study that selects which of these trades to take to be able to manage/limit the risk. A main strategy/study for the whole portfolio.
I am scanning 50 stocks for swingtrading opportunities (RSI(2) < 5).
I get a signal on 7 stocks, and would like my "main portfolio strategy/study" to select 5 of these 7 to buy.

I would like to have a function in the PLE to Identify the quantity assets in the portfolio. It is very important to work with pyramiding.
