Description

Playback is a fantastic feature, but without a corresponding DOM to trade it, the value provided is very much limited.
 
Please consider allowing users to trade the Playback of previous trading sessions.
 
I was encouraged to submit this feature request via this thread:

Thank you.

also to be able to trade from the charts in playback mode is a valuable tool for learning the software features and improving intuition and timing to "pull the trigger" in live trades for discretionary trading. Other programs have this feature and MC has playback mode already so you are 3/4 the way there.

Such an opportunity should not be missed in a superior platform.

+1 for this feature and for dtl-saw's suggestion, ie, it'd be really useful for those of us who are learning the software to be able to trade directly from the chart in playback mode. Once a customer learns a tool is difficult for them to justify changing to another, hence I think that feature would be quite valuable for Multicharts as well.
Looking forward to have it implemented in the software...

This feature request is related to a built in simulation environment.
It combines not only playback trading, but also other types of manual/automated trading.

Playback without this feature has little value, unfortunately. Any platform can do some sort of playback. This feature would be the distinction between a great platform an all the rest.

It seems some other platforms offer this:

further than that, AB's Support comments below:
It's also possible to modify that formula in the link even further, as now AB supports static arrays (so you could store all trades within a single array per symbol), then possibly use such manually picked trades for further processing in backtester.
cheers

Do we have any timeline on this update, at the moment I pay a sierra chart subscription just for this feature (replay), as I do have a MC lifetime membership.
Basically just want to playback from a historic date, and be able to trade manually with the standard reporting features.

At the moment there is no ETA of the feature. As soon as it is scheduled for any particular version, the stauts of the feature request will be updated.

I think one of the main reasons ninjatrader is so popular is that people use their simulator to learn how to trade and then buy NT when they want to trade live because that is what they are used to. I am thinking of buying NT myself instead of MC.net just because of the simulator and the ability to easily analyze your performance in the simulator.

It seems NinjaTrader, the main competitor, had this feature since version 7.
http://daytradetowin.com/blog/2011/10/31/how-to-use-market-replay-with-ninjatrader-7/

Following NinjaTrader's approach one can solve the data storage problem: the DOM replay data does not have to be locally stored for multiple sessions. MultiCharts can store them on its own server, and allow user to download the DOM replay data one session at a time. MultiCharts can even provide the data for download for back test purpose other than DOM replay (for a premium fee to offset some cost), which will be a very unique data offering.

+1 for this to be implemented.

I thought this is what the playback feature is made for???

MC-Crew: Any updates on this feature?
