Description

Requesting the ability to trade automated strategies via a control panel instead of off charts. This will allow the user to have more control and maintain their automated strategies easier, activate/deactivate strategies faster, and should help improve Multicharts' performance due to the lack of charts and indicators for those of us that don't use them.
The Real-Time Market Scanner is basically doing the same calculations that the charts are doing. If only we could insert strategies and send orders through that panel or something similar, that would be greatly appreciated! Especially for those of us trading multiple markets, timeframes, and strategies. This would greatly improve almost every aspect of Multicharts' automated trading.
Ninjatrader's "Strategies" tab is a great example to start from (picture attached). TradeStation also has the "Radarscreen" which allows users to send orders via .PlaceOrder macros.

Steps to reproduce this issue

I think this is a great idea.  It would be great too if we could allow PowerLanguage scripts to post messages to the panel so that traders could write code that alerts them (for example) when a trade is close to firing (or some other messages).
