feature_request_tiny.png 12:09  Feature request MC-2667 - Tradovate broker connection
Chto Stoic (Chto Stoic) : Issue created
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

AGhosh (AGhosh) : Issue created
Tastytrade brokers who offer customers to trade US options, equities and futures are developing API so 3rd party platforms can connect to their data and trade feed.

The api development is in progress and will be available end of the year, thought I would let you know about it.

Would be good if Multicharts can offer integration with Tastytrade broker.

ductheduke (ductheduke) : Issue created
I would like to request the feature to be able to change the names of the horizontal lines I added to the chart. I'm not talking about the labels but the names of the horizontal lines themselves. Right now, they are named Horizontal Lines #1, #2, #3 etc. By renaming them to my interest, when the alerts pop up for each line when prices hit, the message box can show the custom name of the horizontal lines as I would like.

bug_report_tiny.png 13:39  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.

Chto Stoic (Chto Stoic) : Issue created
Volume profile substantially slowing down the workflow.

I can't use TPO + VP (increments 1 tick) because of lags and have to use same setup in Sierra Charts for this kind of work, what is frustrating.
I've recorded video to explain it better.


P. S. Also please take a look at my previous report about wrong perception of VP from TPO settings. They are made wrong and can't b used for analysis in such way.

feature_request_tiny.png 20:48  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 06:20  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.

I saw these two columns on a medved trader platform from a trader friend and I must say that it gives you the rhythm of the market.I tried to replicate them as indicators but too many calculations being native they work very well and without having to wait for the tick but using the original fields the data feed. Is it possible to create them and give way to the trader to use them in the default watch list?

bug_report_tiny.png 09:59  Bug report MC-2652 - TPO Volume profile wrong perception
Chto Stoic (Chto Stoic) : Issue created
It's hard to say what is it — a bug or a feature request. In my opinion it's a bug.

Please take a look at screenshot.

The Volume Profile option in TPO settings is useless, because you can't correctly analyze chart where 101K bar is several times smaller than 30K bar.
Resolution: it can be easily fixed by making session volume relative to all bars at chart. In this case 30K will be ~3 times smaller than 100K.\

pyhrus (pyhrus) : Issue created

Could you enhance Multicharts and MCPortfolio with the ability to display the Equity of WalkForward process applied to a single Stock or a portfolio ?

That's would be a great and natural feature to add to Multicharts , as MCPortfolio propose already all the main WalkForward features , apart the display of its Equity ...

Could you also allow to export the Equity of MCPortfolio and of Multicharts , as a .txt or .csv file, ?

Best regards

chartsurfer (chartsurfer) : Issue created
Hello everyone,

I really like that MC is able to connect to TS's data feed via QuoteManager. But it would be great, if you could not only look at MC charts but route orders via MC to TS.

It is possible to execute trades through TS using TradingView. It would be great if this also worked with MC.

So, dear MC team, please expand MC's connectivity to TS's API that will allow to execute orders from MC through TS's execution systems!

feature_request_tiny.png 06:01  Feature request MC-2645 - Getting Symbols for Options--- set date range of retrival
Bear (widgeter) : Issue created
I day trade SPY options. SPY has weekly options with experations three times a week. Thus it can have close to 10000 symbols extending out in time 1-2 years. Weekly options are added periodically. To keep the symbols current for weeklies, it is necessary to have quote manager update the weeklies. This entails quote manager searching for all options which is time consuming and not needed. Please add a time range for selecting which options are to be searched and down loaded to the symbol data base. Also when selecting which symbol to add in Multicharts charts, just opening the add instrument for SPY is very slow when it has to retrieve so many symbols.

feature_request_tiny.png 05:33  Feature request MC-2639 - 1 second bar vertical dotted lines to match minute bars.
bowlesj3 (bowlesj3bt) : Issue created
Not sure if this would help other traders but for me yes. I am using 1 minute bars and 1 second bars. I just noticed that your vertical dotted lines in the 1 second bars are somewhat random as far as I can tell. It would be very useful (for me at least) if the vertical lines on the 1 second bars matched the completion time/second of a 1 minute bar. I personally think that traders using 1 second bars would also be using 1 minute bars so I think this idea may be well received. I use to use 10 second bars (bad idea). However even when I was using 10 second bars I was using 1 minute bars and back at that time it would still have been useful to have the 10 second bars vertical dotted lines marking the end of a 1 minute bar. I would be really surprised if there are traders (at least day traders) not using 1 minute bars with your software. So yeah, I am pretty sure this idea would be very well received.

And you know, as a bit of an aside (off topic), way back when I was very active on this forum I suggested a set of features related to forum users being able to get emails of feature requests so they could know to vote yes/no/etc. I would still love to get those emails. I find I don't know what is changing in MC and emails like that would make me more aware and more involved.

Mydesign (mydesign) : Issue created
We definetely need a "Save All" command. This is trivial yet not implemented. Right now, one has to select each individual opened workspaces in order to save them. Sadly it is sometimes just faster to close MC (with 'Save workspaces' On in preferences), then reopen it (with 'Open all wsp from previous session' On).

At least an option to Save Workspaces too when saving a Desktop would do the trick...

Thanks !

feature_request_tiny.png 15:03  Feature request MC-2633 - PLEditor "Editor Options" - Add Background Color
dataheck (dataheck) : Issue created
The highlighting style editor that pops up when one selects Tool -> Editor Options allows the user to set the foreground and background color for text, keyword, comment, documentation comment, string, and number items.

You cannot set the overall background of the editor. If you set the text background to black, only characters that exist have black backgrounds. The overall space is fixed as white and cannot be changed.

If this behavior was changed to use the text background color instead of a hard-coded white background, this would be useful to me. Otherwise it is kind of pointless as a feature.

I don't mind if I have to reload the entire editor after setting the text background color, just so long as I don't have to do it every time. I would appreciate being able to use a black background when coding.

I know I can get this with Visual Studio, but since I have to use PLEditor to compile, that work flow is really inconvenient.

feature_request_tiny.png 19:23  Feature request MC-2631 - Auto Trading Broker Data available to Indicators
bowlesj3 (bowlesj3bt) : Issue created
Hi, Unfortunately the IIROC (Investment Industry Regulatory Organization Of Canada) has blocked Interactive Brokers from taking API orders for all Canadian exchanges for all Brokers world wide. https://www.iiroc.ca/industry/Pages/Dealers-We-Regulate.aspx
I dumped a response to my complaint to the IIROC below. I am currently doing a lot of programming to both control IB's TWS and to get data from IB's TWS as a work around for this problem. I will be emailing IB's API department to ask if they are going to implement DEA as mentioned below. At the same time it would be useful if the commands in MultiCharts which are available to signals were also available to indicators. I tried several commands to get open position data and they all return zero. The only data available seems to be insidebid and insideask which I am using but I have to go back in manually and adjust these values to get my actual price for putting lines on MultiCharts accurately through GVs. I am actually sending key strokes to TWS to export my trade log and grabbing it from that csv file (very Micky mouse as they say). Of course the other alternative is to stop trading Canadian Stocks completely and only trade US stocks. I told the IIROC that I might do that. If these programming changes do not work out that is what I will do.

I am thinking it might be better MC to work with IB to implement DEA as mentioned below. Then I would do what I had planned on doing before I discovered this problem. However who knows how long this will all take (maybe never). In the mean time I plot on to get out of the ditch a they say.


Dear Mr. Bowles,
Thank you for your email.

The IIROC rule prohibiting order execution only (OEO) clients from using their own automated order system to transmit or generate orders has been in place since March 2014 (IIROC Notice 13-0184 – Provisions Respecting Third-Party Electronic Access to Marketplaces (July 4, 2013)). This prohibition is specific to OEO clients.

Clients that wish to use an algorithm to generate orders can do so as long as they access the marketplace using direct electronic access (DEA). The difference between OEO and DEA is that dealers who provide DEA are subject to additional requirements, such as having the ability to override or disable a malfunctioning “runaway” algorithms.

For a complete list of IIROC regulated investment dealers, please see the Who We Regulate section of our website. Unfortunately, IIROC does not publish a list of investment dealers that specifically offer DEA access.

IIROC is the national self-regulatory organization that oversees all investment dealers and their trading activity in Canada’s debt and equity markets. IIROC sets high quality regulatory and investment industry standards, protects investors and strengthens market integrity while supporting healthy Canadian capital markets. IIROC carries out its regulatory responsibilities through setting and enforcing rules regarding the proficiency, business and financial conduct of more than 170 Canadian investment dealer firms and their more than 29,000 registered employees, the majority of whom are commonly referred to as investment advisors. IIROC also sets and enforces market integrity rules regarding trading activity on Canadian debt and equity marketplaces.

Mydesign (mydesign) : Issue created
We need simple way to work efficiently back and forth between MC and PT. Right now, one has to rebuild entirely a strategy when going from MC to PT, which is very time consuming and prone to errors.

Ideally a copy/paste function which would allow to copy a chart from MC, including all signals and settings, translated as a Strategy in PT (we already have this ability for a list of symbols from the scanner). Better yet, a syncing function which would maintain exact equivalent of MC Chart/ PT Strategy combo, or even MC Workspace / PT Portfolio (minus their respective particularities).
