Description

I offen use pyramiding. That means, that I open a position in one direction, and after some time when the trade is already profitable, I decide to add some contracts to the already existing positions (same direction). Unfortunately, when I do that in MCDT, the chart only displays one open position at the average price of the positions at which I originally opened the positions. If I now want to close the lastly opened position because I see that I entered the trade at the wrong price level (market goes against me), I am not able to do that on the chart as the chart only displays one position at the average price. That is a really unflexible handicap, and I want to request an option for chart trading such that each opened position is displayed at the price level at which it was filled, and such that each opened position can be closed seperately on the chart (together with dependent stop and limit orders). By the way, I already use such a feature in another trading software.
The feature is also required in the case Multicharts wants to support hedging accounts where open positions can exist in both directions but currently I am only interested in pyramiding and for it the feature is necessary, too.
 

Steps to reproduce this issue

Use MCDT 7.0.66.400 (final release from 15.07.2011).
