feature_request_tiny.png 11:31  Feature request MC-2353 - Store strategy optimization parameters along with report
Clement (clementlim) : Issue created
When storing a strategy optimization report, it would be useful to store the strategy name and parameters that were used to generate the report. This feature would be especially useful when testing many different strategies and variations as it is easy to lose track of which optimization report belongs to which strategy and parameters being tested.

bug_report_tiny.png 15:11  Bug report MC-2352 - Money Management Settings in Portfolio Trader do not work when # shares or dollars are specified within a strategy
trader0311 (trader0311) : Issue created
Hi,

I have a portfolio of strategies that I am using in the Portfolio Trader. These strategies all scale into positions with varying numbers of shares based on volatility and other factors. However, I noticed that when you specify trading limits (ie the number of dollars to allocated to a strategy) and do so in the actual strategy code, the money management settings do not work and you can end up trading on margin. That is, you can trade more than your account is worth.

The money management settings do seem to work when you enter the "dollars per trade" in the strategy properties, but not when you set the trading thresholds from within the strategy code.

I believe that this is a critical bug that needs addressed as soon as possible. There is no way to tell that you are exceeding your account equity when you backtest unless you do a substaintial amount of work to calculate it. People like me just assume that the money management settings are doing their job and are not allowing your account equity to be exceeded. So unless this bug is fixed, those that specify the number of shares to be traded within the strategy code, are at risk of over-levering themselves if they are using Portfolio Trader to place trades and to generate accurate portfolio level backtests.

Portfolio Trader is a great tool and I am hopeful that this issue will be addresses as soon as possible.

Thank you!

Zheka (Zheka) : Issue created

By default, PT displays all available columns in Order and Position Tracker (in all tabs) in PT.

If one de-selects several columns, the changes are not saved by the PT.

feature_request_tiny.png 16:33  Feature request MC-2350 - Ninjacators for Multicharts
WACtrader (wactrader) : Issue created
I think Multicharts should start a website that is similar to the Ninjacator website that offers a subscription to gain access to a library of strategies and indicators. Ninjacators even has a market insight newsletter. It would keep people engaged and develop more as traders.

feature_request_tiny.png 12:55  Feature request MC-2349 - Portfolio Trader: Equity curves per Strategy, Market and Market-Strategy
Zheka (Zheka) : Issue created
It would help immensely to quickly judge performance of a Portfolio, if a user could not only see the Total Portfolio Equity, but also its components.
There could be a 2-level dialogue window or - better- a table with toggles, allowing one select either entire strategies or entire instruments or choose market-systems at the intersection.

Ideally - also with a red vertical line on a chart to specify the beginning of a live trading period.

Zheka (Zheka) : Issue created

feature_request_tiny.png 12:32  Feature request MC-2346 - Portfolio Trader: change StrategyName in OPT to those in Portfolio Tree
Zheka (Zheka) : Issue created
At the moment, the Strategy Name column in Orders and Position Tracker in PT just repeats the signal names used in Strategies. A list of them!
This is useless if one runs strategies with similar signals but with different parameters.
Expected Strategy Names are how they are named in the Portfolio tree by the user.

Hi guys

An exception is returned at times by OandA due to an invalid request sent to their server from MultiCharts. The following error is logged in MultiCharts Portfolio Trader:

"10/9/2017 3:30:08 PM" "Warning" "OANDA" "" "-" "MakeRequest (POST) WebException: ; Message= "Insufficient authorization to perform request."; requestString= "https://api-fxpractice.oanda.com/**v3**/accounts/101-001-6358291-002/orders""

The problem is that the request passed is trying to access a version 3 of the REST API, OandA currently only supports version 1 and 2.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Kind regards
Ettienne Hugo

ComputerGeek (computergeek) : Issue created
Powerlanguage is a compiled version of pascal. I think MC should be consolidated into one product. People should be able to pay for both and have access to both the MC traditional and MC.Net version. Use the same .NET IDE, compiler and debugger. It would add more value and be more streamlined.

feature_request_tiny.png 15:11  Feature request MC-2342 - Adaptive Chart Settings and Scaling
Kent (kcramer@ntier.com) : Issue created
Provide ability to adjust chart resolution, scaling and other chart settings programmatically through Power Language. The following use cases are applicable to my need:

1) When charts are linked to a Watchlist the resolution and scaling should adjust based on selected instruments. For example, if the resolution of a chart is based on Ticks or Contracts, I would like to programmatically adjust the resolution based on average daily volume of the selected instrument to make the chart readable. Or when switching between Stocks, Futures and Forex instruments, I would like to adjust scaling to make the chart readable without having to manually adjust the settings.

2) My Contract charts are based on 90 day average volume. I typically adjust the resolution once a month but I would the charts to update automatically each time the workspace is opened.

Gaetano (gaetano) : Issue created
Read from file.
The powerlanguage editor has the PRINT keyword to write on a file, but an instruction to read from a file is missing.
May be something like that:

GET ([OutputTarget],Expression1,Expression2,etc.)

Currently the only possibility to exchange data among Multicharts applications is to use the Global Variables (but they have a limit of 10,000 locations) or an external .dll - EL Collections (but data cannot be exchanged among multiple Portfolio Trader sessions), and their use is not so friendly.

feature_request_tiny.png 14:23  Feature request MC-2340 - Save a usable optimisation file
RockyLee (rockylee) : Issue created
When doing an optimisation, a really nice feature is being able to double click on a line of the results and then every variables are tranfered to the strategy for backtest or anything else.

I would be really nice to be able to save that screen and then open it at an other time and still being able to click on a result and transfert the values to the strategy.

For now, as I saw it, we can save a excel format of the values but in order to test it later (after an other optimisation) we have to enter every values by hand.
feature_request_tiny.png 14:15  Feature request MC-2339 - Sorting optimisation result and add personalized columns
RockyLee (rockylee) : Issue created
1-To add quickness to multicharts it would be really useful to be able to add filters to the result.
Exemple: show only Net profit greater than X and numbers of trades greater Y and Drawdown less than Z etc....

2-Being able to add whatever columns we want and being able to make it a calculation of other metrics.
Exemple: I add a column, Net Profit / Drawdown.
That way I can sort it after

3.Being able to keep to new columns(2) over time, so the nest optimisation I still have them

Thank you
feature_request_tiny.png 14:08  Feature request MC-2338 - Add best performing value in genetic optimizer progress popup
RockyLee (rockylee) : Issue created
There is already the average performing result in the genetic optimizer but it would be useful to have the best performing result as well (like the exhaustive optimisation).
Also why not include the best performing variables values so we could test them on an other window without stopping the optimisation

feature_request_tiny.png 13:59  Feature request MC-2337 - Algoterminal Simplicity and Detail Analysis Tools
FidelisCapital (Fidelis) : Issue created
Algoterminal (https://www.algoterminal.com/) is a platform that I recently demoed. It has a very user-friendly user interface and very detailed analysis tools. It gives you the ability to look at Desktop Settings for your algo strategies, Workspaces to look at the charting, Strategies that allow you to look at the results of your strategy, Positions which looks at the open, closed and all positions, trades that look at the Open, Closed and All trades, Orders that looks at Pending, Filled Cancelled and All Orders, Logs that looks at Alerts Log, Journal Log, News Log, RSS Log, Data Connection Log, and Broker connection Log. Lastly, there is a Performance tab that Allows you to look at a Performance Summary, Period Breakdown, Symbol Breakdown, Profit Distribution, MAE Distribution, MFE Distribution and Graph of different curves in Linear or Log scale as well as in different time periods. The Algoterminal charts are terrible. I think MC charts are better. But, the Algorithmic functionality is and results are pretty good. Better than MC. MC has a larger API library. But the Data and Broker Connections are easier to maintain and tools are easier to access. I really wish that MC programmers would look at Algoterminal for inspiration on future updates. Algoterminal automatically updates so you never have to go to the website to download a new version. If a new version is available, it asks you if you want to install it on the splash screen. When you hit install it does it easily and restarts. In order to stay competitive with Ninjatrader and other competition, I think MC Developers should get a free trial of Algoterminal and take ideas from it on how to make MC more user-friendly and Simplistic.

feature_request_tiny.png 13:42  Feature request MC-2336 - Simplified Performance Summary
FidelisCapital (Fidelis) : Issue created
**Algoterminal** (https://www.algoterminal.com/) is an upstart firm that has a very streamlined trading platform. I think Multichart should take some of the simplified analysis tools from that software and integrate them into the MC platform. The performance tab has a Performance Summary, Period Breakdown, Symbol Breakdown, Profit Distribution, Most Adverse Excursion Distribution, Most Favorable Distribution and Equity Graph that has the ability to see the difference regressions by timescale. I would like to see MC simplify their Performance Summary in a similar manner to AlgoTerminal.

feature_request_tiny.png 12:52  Feature request MC-2335 - Chartered Market Technicians Program Partnership
FidelisCapital (Fidelis) : Issue created
Multicharts should become a part of the Chartered Market Technician Program Partnership (https://cmtassociation.org/cmt/chartered-market-technician/). People that are going through the CMT Program get special access to a few resources that help them with the program. Specifically they get free charting with Optima by Market Analyst (https://www.optuma.com/cmt/) It would be a good source of business to have Multicharts as the dedicated partner for the CMT. The CMT is moving toward algo systems and making up trading programs. This would fit in perfectly. If Multicharts had data from Quandl, then it would have free end of day data that CMT candidates could use. I am sure more people would buy licenses when they are done with the program.
feature_request_tiny.png 10:54  Feature request MC-2334 - Exact entry date times for trades with Bar Magnifier ready to export performance report
Andy (traderandy) : Issue created
Hello,

it is possible to check a strategy intrabar with bar magnifier. If I check a strategy on 1 minute or ticks I would like to get the exact performance report with the exact entry times of the trades and MAE, MFE, etc. like in other Performance Reports, too. It should be ready to export to Excel, like other Performance Reports too. Because MultiCharts does calculate it in background, it should be possible to see the calculated results exactly too. Actually this is not the case. Please allow this feature. Then on a daily strategy with stops etc. I can see the exact entry times within the day when I check the strategy with intraday data. Thanks.

Sincerely,
Andy

AdrianP (AdrianP) : Issue created
Could you please introduce the same facility Tradestation has where we can change the transparency/opacity on any indicator line. So instead of having solid lines all across the page, we can tone down less important lines, thereby reducing clutter on the screen. At a setting of 100% it would be shown as the default setting. At 50% it would be half the intensity.And at 0% it would become invisible. The setting would likely be placed under the Format/Style Tab.

Please export the WFO analysis results to a formatted Excel file. The current formatting in Multicharts looks good but since it is exported to a csv file the formatting, min, max, averages are lost. Please see the example file attached that I prepared manually. I only included the averages in the example but it would be nice to have the minimum and maximum as well.
