Description
  1. It would be good to add to PowerLanguage a keyword (variable) that will address the balance at the broker (which is indicated in Order and Position Tracker window). For the strategy to understand how much money it really has for order execution and position calculation.
  2. The system shall recognize a real deal price at the broker after it was performed, to see a real Profit/Loss at the position. For example, signal 'buy at 100' is executed at 101 and the system should know that 101 spent and when signal 'sell at 103' is executed at 102, the system in fact knows that the profit is 1 but not 3

Simply saying, it would be good to have the keywords like 'OpenPositionProfit', 'InitialCapital', 'NetProfit' but with the data from the broker but not from the chart

I can not think of a serious auto trading platform that could not handle this, basis of any money management strategy.
A lot of my clients will stay away from MC because of that.

In MultiCharts 7.1 we will add new reserved words to get data from Accounts tab in OPT in the script.

Nice feature request. While certain type of being extracted from broker - would it be possible to see if there is any other information that can be requested from broker like position  size etc(and any other information that can be pulled from broker) without running the synchronize from broker option? Would be helpful in many ways.
Thanks.
