bug_report_tiny.png 05:24  Bug report MC-2659 - TPO + Volume profile lags
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.

fibdax (fibdax) : Issue created

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.

If I export a great deal of data from Quote Manager, it exports each item one-by-one in serial. While this is underway, my CPU, memory, and disk are all under-utilized.

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).

feature_request_tiny.png 08:22  Feature request MC-2627 - QuoteManager Data Report (First Entry, Last Entry, Largest Gap)
dataheck (dataheck) : Issue created
I mostly like QuoteManager and use it to manage data collection from my data sources. I focus on futures, and as a result I have a lot of symbols in my QuoteManager (currently 1000). Inside of QuoteManager, I have no at-a-glance way of telling how complete my data is without forcing a full download of all symbols. I am concerned about gaps and managing them efficiently.

QuoteManager knows what data it has and could help me, though I think it would have to iterate over all symbols and process the data.

I propose a "report" feature that would list all symbol-resolution-fields on one side and report the first entry, last entry, largest gap (in days, or hours, or whatever), and the location of that gap. I'm happy to wait for this report to generate, I understand it probably would take some iteration.

It would be very cool if I could trigger a download to target only those data gaps, but it's okay if that's not available.

I am finding it cumbersome to manage my data in QuoteManager and this would help a lot.

feature_request_tiny.png 00:21  Feature request MC-2626 - BAR DELTA FUNCTION - very important request. we are at the disadvantage
rsloboda (rsloboda) : Issue created
I contacted support a while ago and was told its not available but there is an indicator someone has contributed. After careful examination and testing (backed by years of experience working with concept) came to sad conclusion that all of the sophisticated analysis tools we have at this platform are great but they are peripheral in away by missing the main point and making the analysis more difficult then it should be really be.

First of this user contributed study you have is some sort of guesswork playing with volume averaging in relation to close an open , etc. This has nothing to do with delta, great job but this is not bar delta ! Copy of the relevant section below. So I need to get this out of the way first.

I WILL USE VOLUME ANALYSIS TO EXPLAIN THIS. THIS IS IMPORTANT FOR ANYONE WORKING WITH THE CONCEPT. Say we have no volume information as it was in the 80 ' s or as deliberately hidden by some brokers. Then someone like this company does great job in developing dozen of tools to estimate it and measure it and how it possible distributed around the bar. Great by no means. Excellent job. But if there is single number such as bar volume available no need to guess. THIS IS THE STARTING POINT OF ANY ANALYSIS. This is what I or any rational trader wants to know first. Look, there is so many variables I need to look at and think about their meaning the last thing I want to to have the whole screen of tools to try to figure out what he bar volume is. First I need to see what total volume is and how it related to many things conceptually and only then zooming in and using all the great tools we have.

Same with delta. Say I have volume of 1000 contract below a bar. I want to relate this to delta. This is all anyone needs really to start with. We have bid ask delta with numbers. Great! But only show one price point. We have imbalances highlighted. Great, very valuable but for more advanced and more specific analysis. Actually ability to reference all the above in easy language would also be extremely useful as well at being able to monitor totals of imbalances horizontally. Getting back to the point, I can wright pages and pages that probably no one will read in detail for will get to main point. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: throw in a function "bardelta" same as volume so it is in the list of indicators. Competitors had it in 2010, and that is only what I seen. When major institutions had it I can only guess. Can we please have it in 2020? Elementary math really you add all bid and ask columns in the bar vertically and provide a difference between the totals as an output. Even simpler actually, as volume is already there we need to subtract total bids or totals asks from volume and there you have it. This is what I an doing with a calculator as I write this.

What is there on the distribution as a delta in profile is great but most of the time traders need dynamic analysis in relation to time. Say we have a trend correction. If it on a lower volume or higher volume? That I can ascertain. Is it on a significantly higher delta or lower delta as that correction progresses? I am scratching my head and straining my eyes and brain doing he numbers to get a sense of it. I really just want to plot it below volume and move on to other things. I want to throw some moving average on it.

As of this month you will charging 2k for access to a platform as you have delta analysis advertised as part of it everywhere with wonderful colorful screenshots that NASA control center would be jealous of. That is a lot of money for access. and.. I am using some silly approximation that any kid can throw into any free software out there. The internet is full of such indicators.

This is really really needed. Just trust me on that one. There are leading providers like CQG and MarketDelta contracting them ask asking for an expert on the matter and his opinion would prove my point best. Some very reputable traders also rely on this.

Thank you for your time and attention. I hope that managed to make a point. If I had access to the platform code and new how I would not be asking this. Would have done it myself.

sample of someone's code:

If volume > 0 then volumework = Volume
else volumework =1;

myclosedelta = close/volumework - open/volumework;
myhighdelta = high/volumework - open/volumework;
mylowdelta = low/volumework - open/volumework;

if myclosedelta > 0 then begin
diff = myhighdelta - myclosedelta;

feature_request_tiny.png 20:43  Feature request MC-2625 - chronic paintbar misalignment
rsloboda (rsloboda) : Issue created

Have what I think is a simple question. I cleaned up my charts by converting some studies into paint-bar. However, I run into a visual scaling issue that I cannot resolve.

PlotPaintBar (open , close, "down", rgb(170, 1, 0));

The problem is that above formula requires manual setting of a paintbar width (screenshot below). I do that and charts look great as long as I do not touch them. When I expand and contract them on the horizontal axis however ( and I do that a lot everyday) it is either too wide or too narrow ( as you can see below). Result is that I lose a sense of order as this visual mismatches confuse my perceptions.

Please suggest how to adjust the code so paintbar width is auto adjusted to candle body width.??

I was told by support this only works by .net version. Please realize that is not not feature request but a fault. Paints bars do not work as they are expected so what the point of having them if they only mess up the charts visually.?

I tried to play with bringing them into background by using "visual order" and found a bug in your system. You do that several times with few indicators and dragging stops working vertically only horizontally works. One frustration led to more frustration.

More on candle colors If you do not want to support paintbars why not have an ability to set candle colors from custom conditions in easy language. I am sure that does not require any resources if we can set up and down candle colors in menu I am sure adding a simple keyword "setcandlecolor" like you have "setplotcolor" to override the menu or something of that nature is no programming project by any means. Small thing but will help. I am in this for over 20 years I am sure others will appreciate too. Thank you.

dataheck (dataheck) : Issue created
I've been exporting large data sets and downloading lots of historical data today. I have noticed that while either operation is underway, my charts do not load in MultiCharts and Portfolio Trader is unable to retrieve historical data from the database. It appears that the database does not support concurrency.

I'd think it should be possible - even if not to fill in missing data, to fill in stored data. I guess QuoteManager locks the database while it works on it.

It's really inconvenient as these operations take a great deal of time. I know I could schedule them, but I shouldn't have to. I have a "beefy" computer that can handle the load.

I am on MultiCharts .NET Build 19286.

ProMindForex (trademarketsglobal) : Issue created

A product like Multicharts is incomplete without functionality for Options Trading.
While its possible to trade stocks with Multicharts, the inability to trade Options with Multicharts makes it difficult for hedging strategies using options to be implemented with Multicharts.
This limitation has to be overcome.

Also Options **in and of itself** is a great product to trade with so many option strategies and day trading, weekly options trading and so Multicharts should look at bringing in the options trading ability within Multicharts to make it **All Assets Trading Platform of Choice.**

I request all traders reading this to vote and contribute so Multicharts can take up this feature request for the benefit of all traders.

A very important part of chart analysis and trade plan is working out the risk and reward. To do that, we need a good Risk to Reward drawing tool as its very essential on chart analysis. Please bring this feature as soon as possible pls. I like to give reference to The risk to Reward analysis tool we see in Tradingview charts to explain the requirements for this tool.

I request everyone seeing this post to vote for this feature as more votes will enable Multicharts to consider this feature and introduce soon within Multicharts Platform.

bug_report_tiny.png 08:53  Bug report MC-2620 - Chart Trader Strategy Parameters Stop Loss Offset Percentage bug (very easy fix)
bowlesj3 (bowlesj3bt) : Issue created
Hi, I would classify this as a bug and probably an extremely easy to fix bug.

I find entering adjustments into the "Chart Trader Strategy Parameters Stop Loss Offset" difficult when it is set to %. For example, I will clear the box and start typing in something new such as 1.45 it tries to anticipate as soon as I put the 1 in by inserting two zeros. So when I type the .45 it ends up giving me this "1.45.00" or something else very strange such as 51.40.

I have actually auto programmed the filling in of this box from MS-Access (see below) and thought I had it down pat. However it messed up and I am trying to figure out how to program it to work and it keeps throwing me these very strange curves. So much so I am having trouble doing it manually. Any fix A.S.A.P. would be much appreciated. I think a simple clear the box upon entry and let us type whatever we want would do the trick.


Call AppActivate("MyMarketWaves", False) 'Activate my MS-Access program that I use as a market assist program
Call funcSetInitialStop("Y") 'This gets the ATR value used below. It uses global variables to pick up the highest ATR value from multicharts
sngMyRound = Me.fldADT_SLE_StoppedOutPerc * 100 'This moves the decimal over
sngMyRound = Round(sngMyRound, 2) 'This rounds the above adjustment to two decimals.
If funcJWYNSmallTalk("Have you opened the initial stop dialog box to have the initial stop percent of " & sngMyRound & " inserted into the chart trader? If you have enter yes.") Then
Call AppActivate("Strategy", False) 'Activate the initial stop stretegy dialog box of multicharts
Call funcJWPause(0.3)
SendKeys "{TAB 5}", False 'tab over 5 times to get to the offset which is set to % rather than ticks
Call funcJWPause(0.1)
SendKeys "{DELETE}", False 'clear the text box.
Call funcJWPause(0.1)
SendKeys sngMyRound, False 'Insert the value you selected from the highest ATR (average true range) for the chart you selected.
Call funcJWPause(0.1)
SendKeys "{DELETE}", False 'Delete everything after the amount you submitted.
Call funcJWPause(0.1)
SendKeys "{TAB}", False 'tab to move to the save key.
Call funcJWPause(3) 'This long pause lets me see if it actually worked since I have had problems with it.
SendKeys "~", False 'press enter.
Exit Sub
End If
