feature_request_tiny.png 10:18  Feature request MC-2590 - Use IQFeed Symbol Refresh on Rolling Futures Contracts
TrendFirst (TrendFirst) : Issue created
I've posted this topic in the discussion forum, re-posting the issue here as a feature request.

[Your text to link here...](https://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=51896 "Rolling Crude Futures")

During a futures contract roll, the IQFeed symbol database refresh happens overnight, as they have millions of symbol updates to do and that is the only practical way to do it. This takes a period of hours, and during this time the symbol shown in an MC chart is the old symbol, while the data shown in an MC chart is the new data. This can be confusing to a trader that is executing trades during this period. If I do a symbol search in MC during this symbol updating process, it will still show the old contract, even tho the data in the chart is the new contract. This is only an issue for a matter of hours, and by the next morning the symbol database, symbol in the chart, and the data are correct and match.

It is possible to use a symbol refresh that IQFeed sends with the new contract data, and show the symbol for the new contract immediately, along with the new contract data. MC currently retrieves the symbol from the symbol database, and while the database is being refreshed, MC will pull and display the old symbol. I would suggest that MC be modified to use the new symbol that is sent immediately with the new data, rather than pulling from the symbol database.

Thanks for considering my request.

feature_request_tiny.png 18:54  Feature request MC-2589 - "Sort and Filter" Function in "List of Trades" of Performance Report
ragdoll (ragdoll) : Issue created
We develop new strategies on Multicharts. After back testing on several years history, there usually will be thousands of trades listed in the "List of Trades" of Performance Report. Currently, the functionality of "Go To:" is quite limited. We have to export that list to excel and do some job by the "sort and filter" in excel to find the specific trades we want to check. Would you please help to provide that function in the "List of Trades"? That will facilitate much of our strategy development work.

We consider adding a possibility of creating sets of settings/style templates for the signals to facilitate this process. Once created these templates will be available for each signal.

bug_report_tiny.png 12:53  Bug report MC-2586 - Programmatically-drawn rectangles do not display in the correct UI layer when not based on data1
pburich (pburich1) : Issue created
When rectangles (and probably ellipses as well) are drawn by an indicator based on a datastream > data1, the UI layer to which they are assigned visually supersedes manually-drawn 2-dimensional objects (rectangles and ellipses). This makes it hard to annotate charts to share with others since a rectangle or ellipse drawn to highlight an area of interest on the chart disappears behind any programmatically drawn 2-dimensional objects.

This behavior is not observed for 1-dimensional objects, so the lack of consistency would suggest a minor bug vs. a new feature request.

feature_request_tiny.png 03:48  Feature request MC-2584 - Improvements for strategy position (total per underlying)
endystrike (andrea_nebiolo) : Issue created
Please give the possibility to check if the sum of all theorical position on an underlying matches with the broker position on that underlying.
For example, I have 6 systems on CLM9:
sys 1: long +1
sys 2: flat 0
sys 3: short -2
sys 4: long+4
sys 5: long +3
sys 6: long +1

at this point I'd have to manually do the sum and check if the sum is aligned with the broker position that in this case should be = 1+0-2+4+3+1 = +7

feature_request_tiny.png 20:23  Feature request MC-2583 - Power Language-Chart Trading Panel extension
SYSWIZARD (SYSWIZARD) : Issue created
Having the ability to control certain aspects of the Chart Trading Panel from within Power Language.
I would like the ability to:
1) disable Buy/Sell buttons under certain conditions
2) set the # of contracts based on market volatility
Right now this has to be done manually....and you know how that goes.

I am constantly finding myself getting out of winning positions too early ...and want to disable the sell/buy based on my position until the market trend changes. This is a huge problem for me right now.
Also, I find myself trading the same number of contracts regardless of market volatility conditions. I'd like to set the default number of contracts based on a volatility measure. I am constantly having to change the default # of contracts in the trading panel. It would be great if the software could do it from an indicator or signal.

Here are some ideas for implementation:
Remember: With PowerLanguage any and all kinds of logic can be applied.
Setting the bet-size based on current volatility makes a lot of sense.

So all we need is a few getters and setters: CTP = Chart Trading Panel
v1 = CTPGetBuyButtonStatus; // returns true/false
v1 = CTPGetSellButtonStatus; // returns true/false
s1 = CTPSetBuyButtonStatus(boolean True/False); // true = enabled
s1 = CTPSetSellButtonStatus(boolean True/False); // true = enabled

v1 = CTPGetQty; // returns current size
s1 = CTPSetQty(long ); // sets current size

Wow, this would be a huge improvement for those who are semi-automated traders (like me !!).
feature_request_tiny.png 20:16  Feature request MC-2582 - Enhance Powerlanguage to support more robust Alerts
SYSWIZARD (SYSWIZARD) : Issue created
I use Alerts a lot..and that's the problem....they all look the same and distinguishing them clearly in rapidly moving markets (think E-Mini) becomes difficult....even with sounds.
I wonder how difficult it would be for MC Engineers to provide an extension for Alerts to be able to change:
1) background color
2) Font type, size, and color
3) Placement on screen
4) allow embedded images

In this manner with these features certain Alerts would stand out from others.

feature_request_tiny.png 22:40  Feature request MC-2581 - Volume Delta charts colour shading
Al3cs (al3cs) : Issue created
I noticed that colour shading in Volume Delta Charts is only based on relative values inside single rotation.
I think it is far better to consider prevoius rotations values too for colour shading.
In this way you can fast spot on relative changes in market values, in the same way most of others charting softwares does.

bug_report_tiny.png 02:22  Bug report MC-2580 - QuoteManager and TradeStation data
WildWex (gwexler) : Issue created
When I import data from TradeStation and keep a symbol 'connected' via Quote Manager, it seems that QuoteManager does not retain the data it collects. Each time I update the chart changing the timeframe from 10 min to 15 min bars (more or less minute based regular bars) the data is required from TradeStation rather than retrieved from data already collected and stored in QuoteManager.

I have no such problem when collecting data from Rithmic. However, the problem manifests when using TradeStation.

Hi,

I would like to see the option to draw diagonal lines on the Gann Square drawing tool.
The default settings use 0.25,0.5,0.75,1.0 creating 16 squares.

Please see the 2nd chart at this link for an example of what I am discussing. My main request is for the dark thick blue line options.

bug_report_tiny.png 07:37  Bug report MC-2577 - Performance/ compiler isse
Zheka (Zheka) : Issue created
I have (again) stumbled upon a performance issue, where a script was taking too long to execute (some 26sec on 7yrs of 20min bars).

Investigating, I copied it block by block to another, fresh script, but it run in <6 sec altogether.

The only block left was the one which should not have been executed anyway (if false then...) - and when I copied it, the time got back to 26sec!

Somehow a block of code that should not have been executed dramatically influences run time!

!! AND - params passed to functions that are not supposed to be executed - influence run times!

Observation: this seems to be a problem with functions that call other functions and use arrays.

The below code takes 11 sec to execute on 7yrs of 1-min bars of EURUSD; if all function calls are commented out - 6+sec.

bug_report_tiny.png 07:31  Bug report MC-2576 - CustomInstrument fails with the resolution same as primary data's
SUNRISUS (sunrisus) : Issue created
Hi from a new comer!

I have been playing with data retrieving using CustomInstrument, and noticed that it is working fine for retrieving instruments except the resolution the same as the primary data's.. I know I could do it with DataLoader, but the later is not bond with primary bars and would make plotting more difficult. It would be nicer if Multicharts would allow requesting new instruments with the same resolution as the primary data's, facilitating plotting.

I also know I could bypass the problem by loading data2 to chart, and using BarsOfData(2) , but if I were to manually load 10-20 instruments to chart every time, that would be a painful process.

I am not sure if not allowing the resolution same as primary series is by design or a bug.

The following is the sample code, with primary chart data resolution of 1 day. All resolutions works fine except the resolution the same as primary data's.

feature_request_tiny.png 07:41  Feature request MC-2575 - Show WICKS on LINE BREAK charts
WildWex (gwexler) : Issue created
I have found Line Break bars to be more effective than RENKO bars when used with specific indicators. On Ninja Trader, there is a 3rd party plugin (LineBreakWicked) that shows wicks which I've used effectively.. When ATR is calculated with wicks, the calculation, and thusly efficiency, is improved, vs. being blind and having no wicks in which ATR can use.

Request: Please offer a 'show wicks' option on LineBreak and show in candlestick mode if possible.

I have *Attached* an image for review so you can see how ATR is benefitted by having wicks in its calculation

Thank you.

feature_request_tiny.png 00:16  Feature request MC-2574 - Playback - No Bars for a Symbol with " Global Mode " - Jump to Next Bar
Jobauma (Jobauma) : Issue created
The feature request is that when you have several symbols in " Playback - Global Mode ", and when 1 or more symbols have no data ( at a certain point ), all the symbols jump to the next bar of the symbol that have no data. If there are more than 1 symbol that have no data, the jump is the next bar for the symbol with the biggest gap. This way the playback is continuous for all symbols. Symbols with data that makes the jump, doesn't exclude any bars in the jump; the calculation of all bars in the jump is calculated, when a symbol without data makes the jump with 1 bar. This feature is important when using many different symbols in " Global Mode ", and not just many charts of the same symbol. Alternatively there can be an indication, highlighting or 2 timelines, of where the jump was, for symbols with data ( "Start" / "End" ), and just 1 timeline for symbols without data ("Gap"). A dropdown menu besides " Global Mode " would be nice to enable the function. Maybe highlighting can be included in this dropdown menu too. Another idea is to have timers for symbols without data, to see how much time there is for the next bar to occur ( based on playback speed ). Then you can manually decide to make the jump ( for all symbols ). This is done from the symbol that have no data. This time symbols with bigger gaps may not reach its next bar ( after the current gap ), but all other symbols with data has followed ( the symbol without data that made the jump ). I think that there should be an own button for jumping manually. :) I hope that this is something that is useful for others too. Please give some feedback on the issue. Best regards, Johannes Hillestad Baumann.

feature_request_tiny.png 10:00  Feature request MC-2573 - Chart: Backfilling Complete Notification
WildWex (gwexler) : Issue created
When a chart is busy backfilling data, I would like to get some sort of audio notification when it has completed collecting the data (and potentially completed calculating any studies, etc). Because such calculations and backfilling can be done more often, and audio responses for such could be distracting, I recommend using simple tones or sounds (customizable by user?) or mp3 file referred by user(?) to indicate when the backfilling or calculation is complete.

This would be helpful to those who are working on other charts or other applications and would like notification when a requested task to multicharts is complete.
