feature_request_tiny.png 13:04  Feature request MC-2719 - Add the Date when Chart Optimization Took Place
dean (dean) : Issue created
Optimized Date - A useful feature that can be placed in the Settings page of the Testing Strategy Performance Report.
Place "Optimized Date" field below "Back-Testing Mode" field - if the Optimization method was Exhaustive (classic) or Genetic - fill field with Date. When Optimization is Continuous put N/A in date field.

Generally I put in my notebook the date and instrument when an optimization was done - I can't see why this information can't be provided in the generated Report.

It's important knowledge for a variety of reasons. I'm surprised it's not been implemented.

feature_request_tiny.png 13:20  Feature request MC-2718 - "Apply Input Combo to Strategy" Dialog Box is Annoying and Unnecessary
dean (dean) : Issue created
After double clicking a combination of values (a row) in the Optimization Report a dialog box appears:
"Do you want to apply this input combination to the strategy?
Well yes! After all I double clicked - so I know what I want.

When one wants to apply a number of choices quickly in succession this dialog box becomes extremely annoying. Kind of takes me back to using the disaster Win95 and its dialog implementation.

Suggestion is to at least put a "Don't show this in future" checkbox on the dialog bottom left. To bring it back, for those that miss it - perhaps put a choice in the MISC tab of File/Preferences.
Other suggestion is to just get rid of it altogether - with respect, it really serves no useful purpose for users beyond the amateur.

feature_request_tiny.png 07:42  Feature request MC-2717 - Adding Buy and Hold-Strategy to Performance Report
Erik L (Erik L) : Issue created
It would be advantageous if a graphical (and/or an arithmetically) comparison of trading strategy and** Buy-and Hold Strategy** could be implemented into the **Strategy Performance Report**.

feature_request_tiny.png 16:26  Feature request MC-2716 - Commentary Function in Script Editor
Erik L (Erik L) : Issue created
It would be extremly advantegous if a commentary feature would be integrated in the script editor.

It should work as follows: Mark the corresponding codes lines, right click, context menu -> toggle comment and vice versa. Then "//" is inserted or deleted automatically at the beginning of the marked code lines. It is quite time consumimng to do this manually for hundreds of code lines.
feature_request_tiny.png 09:01  Feature request MC-2715 - Script editor
Erik L (Erik L) : Issue created
Hello,

What I miss in the script editor is a functionality for toggling code lines can be shifted into comment lines, simply by right mouse click, "toggle comments". The "//" for comments must always be put in manually which is time consuming. A sophisticated solution would be to mark the corresponding code line, right-click on toggle comments and vice versa.

feature_request_tiny.png 23:00  Feature request MC-2711 - Add more cryptocurrency brokers and data sources
idnotbe (idnotbe) : Issue created
Now crypto market is growing really fast.
and more and more automated trading platforms support cryptocurrency exchange connections.

MC offers only Binance among the "major" ​crypto exchanges.
I think MC should add more crypto exchanges as brokers and data sources.

To prioritize crypto exchanges, coinmaketcap.com can be a reference. ( https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin/markets/ )
and considering many MC users want to trade perpetual futures, the followings are the top priority except Binance.

- Bybit
- Huobi Global
- FTX

during the recent big drop on the crypto market, Binance couldn't handle the data feed and the order properly because of the overload.
Bybit did it properly without lag, though i don't have the experience of Huobi and FTX.

This is a crucial measurement when backtesting a portfolio of instruments, you want to see a graph of the total amount of capital deployed over different financial instruments that the strategy invested in. thanks
feature_request_tiny.png 07:05  Feature request MC-2707 - Interactive Brokers native algo orders for price improvement and more
Douglas Goullet (Douglas Goullet) : Issue created
Hi,

It would be very beneficial for MC and IB users to be able to send native algo orders from MC. Trying to replicate this algos on MC is not an efficient way to go about it. Price improvement is one of the main bennefits. IB has an adptive algo that is pegged to the mid price (ask*bid)/2. Trying to replicate this in MC is cumbersome.

Benefits:

Price improvements
Hide big orders
Seek more exchange
said by IB:
Order types and algos may help limit risk, speed execution, provide price improvement, allow privacy,
time the market and simplify the trading process through advanced trading functions.

feature_request_tiny.png 14:53  Feature request MC-2704 - Add OOS for charting
tpredictor (tpredictor) : Issue created
Request to be able to specify and switch between an in and oos sample or up to 2 oos periods on a chart. Alternatively, make it easier to change the start/end date for all instruments on chart, i.e. like automated form. As is if I want to test on a period then check against another, I have to change the start/end date for all instruments on chart.

bug_report_tiny.png 07:13  Bug report MC-2703 - CQG Main account w/ sub-account - there is no way to switch between the two (sub-)accounts for a login
andb (andb) : Issue created
CQG Main account w/ sub-account - there is no way to switch between the two (sub-)accounts for a login.
The switch may happen randomly or just by swapping the currency from File - Preferences and connect/disconnect ...
Nonetheless, the two (sub-)accounts are just not visible under chart trading panel.

feature_request_tiny.png 11:44  Feature request MC-2702 - Provide Ability to use Pre-Scanner and Scanner with Multiple Time Frames
tornadoatc (tornadoatc) : Issue created
Provide Ability to use Pre-Scanner and Scanner with Multiple Time Frames
==================
The goal is to be able to write an indicator to rank a list of instruments on higher timeframe (i.e. daily bars) and push list of instruments where indicator value > 0 to the post-scanned section but with each instrument configured for a lower timeframe (i.e. hourly bars).

If there were an option to select the timeframe that would be used for the "filtered" instruments that would be perfect.

Currently if I have a list of filtered instruments that are pushed based on the daily bar pre-scanning I can format the instrument to use hourly bars. But, I can only do this one instrument at a time. If I could select all the instruments in the post-scanned section at one time and format them all to use hourly bars this would also enable me to scan at higher timeframe and then continue analysis at lower timeframe.

feature_request_tiny.png 02:14  Feature request MC-2701 - Granular Profit Factor
AdrianP (AdrianP) : Issue created
Hello,

After watching the interview linked below, at around the 50 minute mark, he discusses the benefit of using PROFIT FACTOR (PF), but ONLY if done in a granular way.
http://bettersystemtrader.com/185-how-to-avoid-creating-trading-strategies-that-degrade-quickly-timothy-masters/

So, I would like to ask for this feature to be enabled in Multicharts.

Instead of calcuating PF based upon closed trades, we would specify a granularity, where the PF is then calculated upon a summation of all the price swings at that granularity.
When you watch the video, it becomes obvious what I am talking about.

**For comparing trading models, I can say with absolute certainty, this would be a game changer.**

awasiuta (awasiuta) : Issue created
I think it is worth adding as a broker and datasource connection to globalpime.com. From my experience they are very transparent and honest broker, great instrument selection. Together with multicharts it's going to be great conditions to trade and will give you as a company access to new markets and new possibilities!

BSI_Intel (BSI_Intel) : Issue created
Dear support, given the growing business of Collective2 platform (which match signal providers and investors) I believe it would be interesting to implement such API 'bridge' in MC.
Such implementation already exist (DLL + .ELD) for Tradestation and can be found on the official Collective2 website.

Thank you
