Description

MC.Net should give users the ability to use python to create strategies. There should be the same premade script in Python as they have in C# and VB. Everyone is starting to use Python. Quantopedia has a free platform that uses Python. MC.Net needs to stay current with the times.

Multicharts with powerlanguage should also have possibility to use Python! It would give a lot more possibilities

Dear Users,

We are going to carry out some investigation after MultiCharts 14 release, and after that we will be able to determine the status of this topic.

Greetings Have you taken any more consideration about creating a Python Multicharts API with all of the premade scripts that are in C# and VB? Python is the fastest-growing language in finance right now. It would be something that would attract more people to Multicharts.

I totally agree. It would be nice to be able to access code make in the entire MultichartsAPI package from PowerLanguage. Great recommendation

Greetings. Do you think an MC Python API addition to the MC.Net languages with all the premade scripts in Python is something that is plausible for the Multicharts 15 release?

I would highly recommend asdding a python API as well.

Nowadays a lot of the customers looking for trading software are moving to other platforms - whose names im sure you have seen on these forums such as TickBlaze and QuantConnect. Both TickBlaze and QuantConnect are primarily C# based platforms just like Multicharts C# but you can use Python to write your strategies in those platforms. These C# based platforms are calling python using the CLR and PythonNET package. However this integration is built into the platform. The user does not have to do the integration to Python.

That being said , I have used those other platforms and their performance is terrible compared to Multicharts. Multicharts clearly has a better product which is blazing fast, with its great features, stable , even with tick data whreas those other platforms are full of bugs and crash with tick data. Yet people are choosing those products because of Python API.

I really think adding the Python API will be a gamechanger for Multicharts !

please see my comment integration Python into C# seems very doable all the other C# competitors like TickBlaze and Quantconnect are doing it
