Description

When trading with LMAX using the LMAX web client, I can close positions individually (i.e. an arbitrary position out of multiple open positions in the same instrument). That's how I trade - I don't close positions FIFO or LIFO style, I just pick one.
Current behaviour:
MC 8.8 seems to display multiple open positions as one single combined position. When chart trading, I am unable to chose a specific position to close.
Desired behaviour:
The chart should display individual positions (I happen to know the LMAX API allows for that) with individual controls to close it.
Severity = critical because this is a deal breaker for me. My trading style requires being able to close an arbitrary position, which the LMAX web client allows for.

Steps to reproduce this issue
  1. Open multiple positions in the same instrument
  2. Open charts window, select display of open positions

Issue MC-582 (released with MC 8.7) seems to describe a similar feature request, possibly with a different broker. Was this reverted with MC 8.8? Or is this broker-dependent?

For years I have tried to move away from MT4. I bought MC.net and found this severe design flaw. I really think MC is by far the best charting package out there bar this limitation of not being able to hedge orders as in mt4. There are a number of platforms now adding position non-fifo based trading eg GFT Dealbook as an option. It seems from the posts in the forum on this issue that this is not a priority to mc. Great pity as the mt4 mkt participants is crying out for viable alternative to the "dinosaur"
