Market Depth not working from TradeStation datafeed, in the MultiCharts DOM. It simply shows as "Waiting for Data..."

Steps to reproduce this issue
  1. login to TradeStation
  2. Open symbol TS: ESZ21 or any other symbol
  3. Open DOM connecting to any broker profile (e.g. IB or Paper Trader)
  4. DOM is greyed out with "Waiting for data..."
  5. Waited for half hour, still nothing is getting loaded.

Hello Faisal,

TradeStation is supported in MultiCharts as a data feed only. In order to receive Depth of Market data in MultiCharts, the data feed must also be a supported broker. As TradeStation is not supported in MultiCharts as a broker, there is no DOM data available from this feed.

Please find the list of data feeds/brokers that provide DOM data in MultiCharts here.

It seems that Level 2 / Market Depth can only come from broker, not from data feed. Like, IQFeed, TradeStation etc Market Depth does not come through to MC.

It seems to be a software design limitation of MultiCharts to use market depth from brokers, even though it is actually a data feed.

Maybe MC developers can address this in the future designs.
