feature_request_tiny.png 22:41  Feature request MC-2508 - Renko Bar Chart Upgrades
TrendFirst (trendfirst1) : Issue created
I have a couple of requests regarding Renko Bar Charts.

The first is simple - please provide a time/tick countdown for Renko bars. I realize in the historical bars there is no time/tick aspect - they are based on points. But in the current Renko bar, there is a time/tick aspect, before it "rolls", if you will, to the Renko format. Please provide a time/tick countdown for the current Renko bar. Thanks.

The second is likely more complex. Please provide more accurate backtests when using Renko bars. As you likely know, backtests using Renko bars can be wildly optimistic. This request is related to number 1 above - if the current bar is an expanded range bar, it will not transition into a single Renko bar - it could be 2, 3, 4, 5 or more Renko bars. Say it's 4. The backtest will assume your entry is based on the first Renko bar in that series of 4 - but really your entry will happen at the 4th bar. If there was a way to adjust entries and exits for this effect, the backtests would be more accurate, and less optimistic. Thanks.

feature_request_tiny.png 23:49  Feature request MC-2507 - TradingView background dragging in Multicharts
hdtrader (hdtrader) : Issue created
The way TradingView does background dragging is way more user friendly. Having to select and unselect the background dragging button in multicharts is very tedious compared to the way TradingView does it, i.e. no button just click and move your mouse when you want to drag the background.

feature_request_tiny.png 08:28  Feature request MC-2505 - Changing Flex Renko value from command line
AdrianP (AdrianP) : Issue created
Currently, we can quickly change our tick, contract and time charts from the command line by simply typing in whatever timeframe/compression we want, such as '100 tick' or '30 min' etc
.
I would like to propose this ability is added for FLEX RENKO as well.

Flex Renko requires 3 values. So, as an example we would type in "30 15 15 Renko" to plot. This will save us heaps of time from having to do multiple clicks every time.

feature_request_tiny.png 21:00  Feature request MC-2503 - Allow an option to send multiple orders per bar
scooper (scooper) : Issue created
Tradestation and other well known trading platforms all multiple orders to be sent per bar per signal calculation.

At present multiple orders in the same direction are summed up and one summed order is sent (using the optimize order flow option) OR (not using optimize order flow) only the first issued order is sent and the other orders are not sent which is very confusing and is not consistent with the way Tradestation works (so converted strategies will no longer work if they use multiple orders per bar and you do not use optimize order flow).

Please allow an option to send multiple orders per bar without summing into one large order. This is very helpful where you want to hide total market order and break an order into multiple chunks that do not show one big sized order to the market.
bug_report_tiny.png 19:41  Bug report MC-2502 - Paper trader triggers stops incorrectly
Will (wilkinsw) : Issue created
Hi,

In both MC12 and 11 (the only version I've checked), papertrader will trigger a buy stop when the quoted ask = buy trigger price.

If you test it, you'll quickly see so. When trading live.... that event alone ("quoted ask = buy trigger price.") does not trigger a resting stop. Someone has to trade at the price or worse to trigger the stop.

Currently stops can be triggered with price ever trading at the stops trigger price.

Please change this as it seems very unnecessary to introduce such inaccuracy into testing.

Thanks.

bug_report_tiny.png 00:09  Bug report MC-2500 - Pyramiding is not working when running live (ok on backtest)
scooper (scooper) : Issue created
When pyramiding and executing multiple entry orders with strategy automation the orders are not placed correctly and current contracts within the strategy are incorrect.

However, the order and position tracking window show the correct position of contracts purchased through the orders placed. BUT this is not what shows on the chart and manual orders are placed automatically which further compounds the problem.

A full video with source code and strategy settings can be viewed from the dropbox video link I have made

this is a huge problem. Please help!!!!

feature_request_tiny.png 02:27  Feature request MC-2498 - easier time segment change for charts
wildmur (wildmur7) : Issue created
The current, fastest method of moving data series ahead/backwards in time is to use the .csy in the command prompt box at the bottom. This is cumbersome as it requires selecting each data series, one at a time, then selecting the command, and a person has to scroll back to select the next data series to move forward.
It would be very convenient to have a button that is easily customizable to move all data series and the entire chart forward for example 40 days. Then I can analyze results, hit the button, and the entire chart moves forward another 40 days. Another button could move it backwards 40 days. For example, I have a 40-day set of data and I move the entire set 40 days forward with the click of one button. Your updates are appreciated.

feature_request_tiny.png 13:44  Feature request MC-2497 - Improve RMC menus
AdrianP (AdrianP) : Issue created
I get the feeling that there aren't a lot of traditional chartists using Multicharts, drawing trendlines and such. As if there were, they would have noticed the cumbersome and inefficient use of the RMC menu structures, or lack thereof.

My request is to improve the menu structure when RMC on a particular item. Currently for example, if I draw a trendline, and wish to then extend it to the right, but not as a default, I first have to RMC, then select another menu option, then click another check box. Clearly this is a massive waste and can be improved 100%.

I would ask the MC developers to transfer many of the secondary menu choice items (after a RMC choice is made) to the 1st menu when first RMC.

The ultimate goal is to minimise the number of mouse clicks needed to achieve a task, while at the same time keeping things from getting out of hand with perhaps a menu choice that was too long. But this should not be an issue when we are dealing with the context sensitive nature of RMC. So in my example above, the choice to extend a trendline to the left or right would appear right when I RMC on the trendline. This will bring it into line with say Tradestation and Metastock, which have had this kind of menu structure for over a decade.

I hope this is clear. And when this logic is applied to many other secondary menu choices, I feel a substantial reduction of mouse clicks can easily be achieved.

Add our above FlipFlop strategy.
Hit the Automate Order Execution button. Surprise: nothing happens ... no orders, no nothing.

With such behavior how can we trust Portfolio Trader with live brokerage accounts ... one wonders.

bug_report_tiny.png 02:12  Bug report MC-2491 - PortfolioTrader - open position net profit does NOT automatically update with dynamic price change, making for daily bars quite hard to track value of open position
andb (andb) : Issue created
PortfolioTrader - open position net profit does NOT automatically update with dynamic price change, making for daily bars quite hard to track value of open position.
Not much to say other than:

1) for day bars, daily swing can be pretty brutal so dynamic open position value needs be dynamically displayed.
2) This is even more true for running real live - any software up there will dynamically show open position values, including classic MC / MC.NET charts ... so not sure why Portfolio is different.
3) This is critical enough to be seen more as a defect rather than a feature ... I wonder what other Portfolio users think (especially those running it on live)

Thanks

bug_report_tiny.png 13:22  Bug report MC-2490 - Portfolio Trader - no continuity between sessions, no synchronization of itself with broker open positions
andb (andb) : Issue created
Assume one trades with Portfolio Trader and has hot 2 positions open, and then one is forced to shutdown / reboot the computer.
Upon restart, Portfolio Trader won't pick up from where it left - meaning, there is no synchronization between broker account open positions and Portfolio Trader.
Even if one "saves" Portfolio trader before reboot, no such synchronization happens.

Possible solutions:
1) Sync with broker positions
2) Upon saving, save also the "active" state of a live trading portfolio manager, such that when opened next time - it opens in live trading with all previous open positions.

andb (andb) : Issue created
Hi guys,

was looking the other day at this function hosted on your website ... and doing some testing, just to realize:

Multichart's week function:
Date: 1070315.00; week: 11.00
Date: 1070316.00; week: 11.00
Date: 1070319.00; week: 11.00
Date: 1070320.00; week: 12.00
Date: 1070321.00; week: 12.00

Other tools week function:

'15-Mar-2007 00:00:00' 11
'16-Mar-2007 00:00:00' 11
'17-Mar-2007 00:00:00' 11
'18-Mar-2007 00:00:00' 12
'19-Mar-2007 00:00:00' 12
'20-Mar-2007 00:00:00' 12
'21-Mar-2007 00:00:00' 12

Looking in a calendar ... 19 March 2007 was a Monday ... impossible to be same week number as the 16th ... hence it doesn't work.

Now I understand this might not be a core study to Multicharts, however it's not working and it's on your website. At minimum you can remove it if no fix is intended, as it's confusing and causes a lot of pain.

Thanks!

Think about this way ... many times we have to do one of the following:

1) Wipe out clean a setup
2) Install a new version on test / release branch
3) Troubleshoot by deleting a symbol / re-adding it back

All these required correcting the above symbols each and every time ...

That's painful ... hence I believe the API should be checked that it gets the right BPV values ... it must be a simple mistake since it works for some and not for others.

feature_request_tiny.png 17:24  Feature request MC-2479 - Contest sensitive coding
AdrianP (AdrianP) : Issue created
In most coding environments, and even Excel, when one is writing code, especially complex or multi level type code, there is some level of context sensitive awareness. The most obvious of these takes place when using BRACKETS. So at the most basic level, when the cursor is next to the left or right bracket, it highlights both in a separate colour. Where this is at its most powerful is when you have a complex formula with many levels of brackets. Trying to work out where a bracket might be missing can become extremely time consuming and wasteful, when a simple colour sensitive highlight would save so much time. I did a search for this issue, since I assumed there would have been many requests for it, but strangely not a single request? Perhaps I just used the wrong search term.

I hope readers can all vote for this very obvious upgrade, even though I realise the number of votes should be mostly ignored, since so few MC owners will even read this post. I assume MC management have already worked this out long ago.
