feature_request_tiny.png 22:18  Feature request MC-2693 - LP Software Datafeed - please add
walter dahmen (walter dahmen) : Issue created

please add Lenz & Partner [Home Page](https://www.lp-software.com/) to the list of supported data feeds.
They offer a huge amount of data for EOD and realtime and they are very fair priced, at least for near time (delay between 10 and 20 minutes) and EOD data making it an ideal choice for private users.
Support for european shares and indices is poor from the usual vendors like Barchart and IQFeed whereas Lenz & Partner provide coverage from a great number of exchanges around the world. And they do not impose limits on the number of items used in parallel in contrast to the other data feeds I have experience with.

There are some interfaces to other charting software (e.g. AgenaTrader and NinjaTrader) but unfortunately MultiCharts is not included at present. I have talked with the company representative and he provided the documentation needed to link their data stream to a client. Here is the link to their API: [](http://www.tai-pan.net/produkte/tpr.net/csharp.aspx) for COM and .NET C#. http://www.tai-pan.net/produkte/tpr.net/csharp.aspx

As this is a definite gain for at least all european clients I strongly argue to consider the implementation of this feed asap as their own software is very limited compared to the capabilities used to at MultiCharts.

Thank You in advance


feature_request_tiny.png 08:41  Feature request MC-2692 - Powerlanguage New Drawing Tools and Improved Graphics
picklerick (picklerick) : Issue created
1) Add Powerlanguage support for drawing rectangle, horizontal line and vertical line.
Rectangle should allow border, fill colour and fill transparency to be set by code.

2) Improve the draw type for Line, allowing the section above/below the line to be filled and transparency set.
Section above/below the line should be user defined as:
between the line and zero
between the line and another line
between the line and +/- infinity

3) Add support for chart background shading. This should include setting the fill colour and transparency. Each background section per bar on the chart should be configurable.

bug_report_tiny.png 09:50  Bug report MC-2687 - Portfolio Trader cannot set 1 max contract/position
rrams (rrams) : Issue created
In the newest MultiCharts64 Version 14.0 Release (Build 21357) in the Format Settings of a strategy in Portfolio Trader, the Maximum shares/contracts per position cannot be set to 1 (one).
If this is by design then why can't a futures strategy be limited to only holding one contract per position like every other version? If you try to set this value to one then a dialog box displays an error message that says the maximum number of shares/contracts per position must be greater than 1 and less than or equal to 1000000000.

Fabrizio (Fabrizio) : Issue created
Hello to all,
Reading performance report data, writing codes and reading backtest reports with a light background results in eye exposure to light which in the long run can cause premature fatigue or other vision problems.
My request was, if possible, to add, as in the graphs, the possibility of choosing which color to keep in the background in the systems development work environment.
Thanks, Fabrizio

feature_request_tiny.png 22:52  Feature request MC-2682 - richiesta di funzione Paper Trading simulator
Fabio (Fabio) : Issue created
Hello, I hereby request the possibility of implementing the "jump to" function by associating it with the paper trading account, with the possibility of being able to simulate trading in a closed market, using dates that can be selected from the datasurce. also a function that can simultaneously link all time frames to the Jump to function.
this would serve to practice trading in a didactic and personal way. whoever has to teach has a unique professional product that they can use in steady markets and at the speed they want.
moreover this type of function is used for personal training. in trading practice is very important, in this way you have the opportunity to trade much faster, learning in less time.
the management of positions will also be a subject of study.
having already created the "jump to" and the "Paper Trading" it will not be difficult to link everything together.
a unique tool, useful for everyone. traders, teachers, students. I hope to have an answer in a short time, if you are not interested in producing this service, please let me know in a short time, thank you very much

feature_request_tiny.png 01:46  Feature request MC-2681 - Move all Stop Loss of the same level at the same time
javierbuenocasado (javierbuenocasado) : Issue created
Let's see an example:
I'm going to place an order with three contracts and three different levels of target, but with only one level for stop loss. Once the order is placed, and it is open, the price moves in my favor, and therefore I want to modify the stop losses to reduce the losses as much as possible. However, as there are three contracts, I have to move all three stop losses one by one, and I can't move all three at once. I think it is very convenient and necessary that there is some way in which, by pressing some command, I can drag the three stop losses at the same time.

pierluca bertuzzi (pierluca bertuzzi) : Issue created
It would be very useful the possibility to add a Multicharts Chart to Portfolio Trader.
Infact If I have a bunch of strategy created, optimized, different commissions and slippages, different data2, 3 etc..
It is not possible to right click and add it to Portfolio trader, for example to study strategies correlations, compare performances, etc..
To do it, we should setup again all datas, optimizations, strategy properties, etc.. in portfolio trader.
Why do not to link the two software in a useful way?

feature_request_tiny.png 02:53  Feature request MC-2679 - Add updated available data feed connections
Tina (Tina) : Issue created
I'm not sure how often the data feed connection list gets updated, but there have been a few not available, including the broker connections. It would be nice if mc updates kept up to date with available feeds over time.

I was interested in testing https://polygon.io/ It seems to have a direct data feed to the markets.

webull is an almost free data feed and broker that seems to be picking up traction in the world.

Here are results from just the first page of a basic google search, some are free sources:



*https://marketstack.com/product !!!(this one looks really interesting. I would like to try it out.)!!!


*https://finnhub.io/pricing-stock-api-market-data !!!(would like to try this one out too.)!!!

So, that was just a few links from a simple google search and I already found two more I would really l ike to test. Perhaps there's a way to have a customized data feed connection options that a mc user can install with the feeds API keys or somethig like that?

feature_request_tiny.png 01:45  Feature request MC-2678 - Multichart order calculation is right? Broker doesn't agree
leonardo tamion (leonardo tamion) : Issue created
I can't understand why on this platform there's this "calculation" which doesn't let you respect the broker's margins. If the broker gives specific margins (for me AMPFutures has 400$ for S&P500 and 500$ for NASDAQ) I SHOULD BE ABLE to trade with just 2k, 3k, 4k or just 1k on this market. I spoke with the broker itself and the customer service said that too, it's easy and every platform respects the broker rules.

In this case Multichart has this calculation which let you trade 1 contract if you have the same amount of money of the market price of the financial instrument (but you have to change the Big Point Value manually, so you won't have the same amount of money if you win or lose the trade) or, if you respect its rules, you have to calculate like this your margin to trade on Paper Trading or Real Trading:

Market Price * number of contracts * BPV

Can you understand this is just crazy, I make an example with Nasdaq:

11.598 * 1 * 20 =231.960€ of margins, are you kidding me?
The broker says I can trade with 500€ on my broker account and Multichart says I should have that amount of money to trade with it? There is a clear problem.

The broker margins should be respected for both Paper Trading and Live Trading account WITHOUT changing any number or data.
I hope I was clear and I'm here to listen to your thoughts
feature_request_tiny.png 01:03  Feature request MC-2677 - Convert unexecuterd limit/ stop order into market only under specific conditions
Claudio V (Claudio V) : Issue created

MC has a function which allows to convert unexcuted Limit or stop orders into market if they are not filled within X second. (where X can be defined per chart)

This functions is generally very usefull, but there are market like Forex, CFD, Futures where market condition are not optimal, spread very wide, and therefore this function can lead to very bad execution and be counterproductive.

To optimize the function, it could be change as follows:
1) Option 1 (reccomended): Enable the conversion only when broker Bid ASK spread on the chart is less than X ticks, where the X can be configured. E.g. enable the conversion onlz if spread is lower than 6 pips. this shall be configurable per chart

2) option 2 (alternative): enable the conversion only during a speciic timezone. this can be conigurable by defining a session in quite manager. once defined, user will assign the session for which the function shall be activated. the session shall be defined in the same screen where the user activate the functionalitz, adn therefore be configurable per chart. \

Option 1 seams best, because the spread can enlarge at any time. it looks also more easy to implement.

feature_request_tiny.png 01:47  Feature request MC-2675 - Scheduled Multicharts closure
enrico saluzzi (enrico saluzzi) : Issue created
I suggest a new Multichart feature.

I have scheduled a weekly backup during the weekend through the backup application that Multicharts provides.

By the way the app is not able to execute the backup if Multichart application is up&running. Based on the fact that I run the backup on Saturday night (with closed markets) it would be very useful if I could schedule also an automatic Multicharts closure or alternatively tells to backup application to close the Multicharts instance when it has to run the backup job.

Actually the best scenario would be if backup application is able to close Multicharts application, runs the backup, and then restarts Multicharts application on the previous desktop. But it can be enough if the backup application is able just to close and execute the backup job.

pierluca bertuzzi (pierluca bertuzzi) : Issue created
as for custom symbols, it should be useful to create broker custom symbols.

feature_request_tiny.png 20:25  Feature request MC-2669 - More Volume Indicators in the same chart
leonardo tamion (leonardo tamion) : Issue created
I think one feature that can be really good for everyone is the possibility to insert more than one Volume Indicator in the same chart (2 or more for the same chart): for example the Volume per Bar and the Total Volume so that we can use less charts and focus our attention on a single one. A full example can be:

- Volume per bar
- Total Volume (on the left or on the right, so you can distinguish the 2 different types of volume)
- Delta (below the candlesticks for example)

With this configuration you can have all the information in a single structured chart (other platforms have this feature).
Thanks, let me know what you think.

Have a nice day

P.s. sorry for my English :)

bug_report_tiny.png 07:22  Bug report MC-2668 - Chart Background Dragging changes the Chart's X-Time-Scale Bars Chart Shift Setting
bowlesj3 (bowlesj3bt) : Issue created
Hi, I use chart X-Time-Scale bar spacing of 2 (default) and Chart-Shift of 30 Bars on my 1 second bar chart. I also use a fixed bar spacing of 12 on all the other charts on my workspace. Having this specific chart shift is critical for my trading because I run several scripts on all 7 chart that display text codes out front that have a variety of interactive functions using the MC_Text_GetActive commands. On one second bars the spacing is wider because I also display short horizontal lines out front to show me the current bid and ask prices.

I don't think I am the only client you have that does this because I have put my interactive programming script logic out on your website so others can use it. They are more likely to use it for discretionary trading but there really is no reason they can't find a use for it while doing full system trading.

Unfortunately when I use the Background-Dragging tool to line up the 1 second bars to match the other charts when I want to save the charts image to a png file the 1 second bar chart X-Time-Scale Bars Chart Shift Setting gets changed to a smaller value such that I can not fully see the text codes out front, I typically forget to reset it immediately after I drag the one second bar chart and during live trading when I want to click on the interactive text code I have to go in and reset the bar spacing back to 30. It would be great if it could be fixed so it leaves this X-Time-Scale Bars spacing alone or resets it to the prior value when the Background dragging hand us clicked again to turn background dragging off.

A lot of people really need it. It's a cheapest broker for futures trading.
They are willing to cooperate.

**This is a message from Christopher Doughty from Tradovate:**
_No, we do not support MultiCharts.
Please do us a favor and reach out to them.
Many people have requested this -- including me, as I am a MultiCharts user, too.
The more that do, hopefully they will add us as a broker._

Please add them as broker for all futures traders here, their commission is 35% lower than IB's.

Thank you in advance

bug_report_tiny.png 04:39  Bug report MC-2660 - SetProfitTarget_pt vs. SetProfitTarget operate differently
db (beck donald) : Issue created
I have a 2 position trade on the S&P emini which has a $12.50 tick value. When I use SetProfitTarget_pt set to 20 I get a different result than if I use SetProfitTarget set to 250. Both are set to PositionBasis True. SetProfitTarget_pt will close the trade when the trade = 20 ticks per position, or $250 for each position, total $500. SetProfitTarget will close the trade when the trade = $125 per position, or total $250. I Think they should operate in a similar way.

So long as the position size is greater than 1 the issue surfaces.

feature_request_tiny.png 11:48  Feature request MC-2657 - Scrolling several charts in the same time
ragdoll (ragdoll) : Issue created
Dear All,

When developing strategies, usually we do comparison with the previous version. We'd like to open two charts side by side, one for new version and one for the previous version. Currently, we have to select one chart and go to some place and switch to another chart and go to the same place. If we could scroll the two charts at the same time, that will facilitates the comparison too much.

So the feature could be detailed as follows.

1. select several charts and make them associated
2. scrolling in one chart will also scrolling in others
3. or maybe draw something in one chart will also have the drawing appear in other charts

feature_request_tiny.png 21:20  Feature request MC-2656 - Background dragging activation with a spacebar
Chto Stoic (Chto Stoic) : Issue created
The most inconvenient thing of MC comparing to competitors is chart moving and scaling (zooming). Charts management feels so much different in comparison to newer software., And it's not about different program languages. Make it work like in TradingView, where you moving a chart by default holding a right mouse button. Make possible to scale/zoom charts with mouse wheel. Currently chart management feels like we are in 1994. Especially when you use mouse wheel in attempt to zoom it, and when wait for minute while it scrolls somewhere to the left.

If you don't think so just make "background dragging" activation by pressing spacebar. Kitten is killed every time when MC users switching between background dragging button and default arrow.
