feature_request_tiny.png 08:56  Feature request MC-2721 - Command Line for "Go To Specified Bar"
rc76 (rc76) : Issue created
Can we add a command line code for:
(1) Go To Specified Bar
(2) Go To DateTime

Thank you!
feature_request_tiny.png 08:49  Feature request MC-2720 - Enable “paste” of DateTime string into "Go To Specified Bar"
rc76 (rc76) : Issue created
Currently the "Go To Specified Bar" does not allow paste of DateTime string into the "Date Time" input section. You have to manually select each individual date and time input.

It will be great you can paste a correctly formatted string into the Input DateTime box, for example:

7/25/2021 12:01:50

This will allow way faster input of datetime data? (i.e. since I have 50+ datetime I want to check for various symbols, it will be truly a pain to insert one by one, instead I can just copy and paste the datetime info directly into the box).

Thank you so much!

feature_request_tiny.png 13:04  Feature request MC-2719 - Add the Date when Chart Optimization Took Place
dean (dean) : Issue created
Optimized Date - A useful feature that can be placed in the Settings page of the Testing Strategy Performance Report.
Place "Optimized Date" field below "Back-Testing Mode" field - if the Optimization method was Exhaustive (classic) or Genetic - fill field with Date. When Optimization is Continuous put N/A in date field.

Generally I put in my notebook the date and instrument when an optimization was done - I can't see why this information can't be provided in the generated Report.

It's important knowledge for a variety of reasons. I'm surprised it's not been implemented.

feature_request_tiny.png 13:20  Feature request MC-2718 - "Apply Input Combo to Strategy" Dialog Box is Annoying and Unnecessary
dean (dean) : Issue created
After double clicking a combination of values (a row) in the Optimization Report a dialog box appears:
"Do you want to apply this input combination to the strategy?
Well yes! After all I double clicked - so I know what I want.

When one wants to apply a number of choices quickly in succession this dialog box becomes extremely annoying. Kind of takes me back to using the disaster Win95 and its dialog implementation.

Suggestion is to at least put a "Don't show this in future" checkbox on the dialog bottom left. To bring it back, for those that miss it - perhaps put a choice in the MISC tab of File/Preferences.
Other suggestion is to just get rid of it altogether - with respect, it really serves no useful purpose for users beyond the amateur.

feature_request_tiny.png 07:42  Feature request MC-2717 - Adding Buy and Hold-Strategy to Performance Report
Erik L (Erik L) : Issue created
It would be advantageous if a graphical (and/or an arithmetically) comparison of trading strategy and** Buy-and Hold Strategy** could be implemented into the **Strategy Performance Report**.

feature_request_tiny.png 16:26  Feature request MC-2716 - Commentary Function in Script Editor
Erik L (Erik L) : Issue created
It would be extremly advantegous if a commentary feature would be integrated in the script editor.

It should work as follows: Mark the corresponding codes lines, right click, context menu -> toggle comment and vice versa. Then "//" is inserted or deleted automatically at the beginning of the marked code lines. It is quite time consumimng to do this manually for hundreds of code lines.
feature_request_tiny.png 09:01  Feature request MC-2715 - Script editor
Erik L (Erik L) : Issue created

What I miss in the script editor is a functionality for toggling code lines can be shifted into comment lines, simply by right mouse click, "toggle comments". The "//" for comments must always be put in manually which is time consuming. A sophisticated solution would be to mark the corresponding code line, right-click on toggle comments and vice versa.

feature_request_tiny.png 23:00  Feature request MC-2711 - Add more cryptocurrency brokers and data sources
idnotbe (idnotbe) : Issue created
Now crypto market is growing really fast.
and more and more automated trading platforms support cryptocurrency exchange connections.

MC offers only Binance among the "major" ​crypto exchanges.
I think MC should add more crypto exchanges as brokers and data sources.

To prioritize crypto exchanges, coinmaketcap.com can be a reference. ( https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin/markets/ )
and considering many MC users want to trade perpetual futures, the followings are the top priority except Binance.

- Bybit
- Huobi Global

during the recent big drop on the crypto market, Binance couldn't handle the data feed and the order properly because of the overload.
Bybit did it properly without lag, though i don't have the experience of Huobi and FTX.

feature_request_tiny.png 07:05  Feature request MC-2707 - Interactive Brokers native algo orders for price improvement and more
Douglas Goullet (Douglas Goullet) : Issue created

It would be very beneficial for MC and IB users to be able to send native algo orders from MC. Trying to replicate this algos on MC is not an efficient way to go about it. Price improvement is one of the main bennefits. IB has an adptive algo that is pegged to the mid price (ask*bid)/2. Trying to replicate this in MC is cumbersome.


Price improvements
Hide big orders

said by IB:
Order types and algos may help limit risk, speed execution, provide price improvement, allow privacy,
time the market and simplify the trading process through advanced trading functions.

Request to be able to specify and switch between an in and oos sample or up to 2 oos periods on a chart. Alternatively, make it easier to change the start/end date for all instruments on chart, i.e. like automated form. As is if I want to test on a period then check against another, I have to change the start/end date for all instruments on chart.

feature_request_tiny.png 11:44  Feature request MC-2702 - Provide Ability to use Pre-Scanner and Scanner with Multiple Time Frames
tornadoatc (tornadoatc) : Issue created
Provide Ability to use Pre-Scanner and Scanner with Multiple Time Frames
The goal is to be able to write an indicator to rank a list of instruments on higher timeframe (i.e. daily bars) and push list of instruments where indicator value > 0 to the post-scanned section but with each instrument configured for a lower timeframe (i.e. hourly bars).

If there were an option to select the timeframe that would be used for the "filtered" instruments that would be perfect.

Currently if I have a list of filtered instruments that are pushed based on the daily bar pre-scanning I can format the instrument to use hourly bars. But, I can only do this one instrument at a time. If I could select all the instruments in the post-scanned section at one time and format them all to use hourly bars this would also enable me to scan at higher timeframe and then continue analysis at lower timeframe.

feature_request_tiny.png 02:14  Feature request MC-2701 - Granular Profit Factor
AdrianP (AdrianP) : Issue created

After watching the interview linked below, at around the 50 minute mark, he discusses the benefit of using PROFIT FACTOR (PF), but ONLY if done in a granular way.

So, I would like to ask for this feature to be enabled in Multicharts.

Instead of calcuating PF based upon closed trades, we would specify a granularity, where the PF is then calculated upon a summation of all the price swings at that granularity.
When you watch the video, it becomes obvious what I am talking about.

**For comparing trading models, I can say with absolute certainty, this would be a game changer.**

I think it is worth adding as a broker and datasource connection to globalpime.com. From my experience they are very transparent and honest broker, great instrument selection. Together with multicharts it's going to be great conditions to trade and will give you as a company access to new markets and new possibilities!

feature_request_tiny.png 10:20  Feature request MC-2697 - Search Box on 'Add a Study'
AdrianP (AdrianP) : Issue created
I'm sure many of us have accumulated 100's if not 1000's of indicators/functions/signals etc.
We might have many variations of the same one, as part of a testing regime.
Also, as we get older, our memories might not be what they once were, and it can be difficult to remember the exact name of a study.
But if we know part of it, a search box would allow us to immediately find it, by referencing just a few letters of the name.
So, rather than endlessly scrolling up and down, hoping to magically come across what we seek, a search box will reolve the issue.

So my request is simple.
ADD A SEARCH BOX on the 'add a study' window.

bug_report_tiny.png 09:29  Bug report MC-2695 - unable to use google drive with Multicharts
lbottan (lbottan) : Issue created
I use google drive and I realized if you save a workspace from MC (last one 14.21357) to a google drive it creates a file with no content, zero bytes.
I do not get any error, it seems fine, but hte file is empty.

I tried to:
-reinstall MC
-reinstall google drive
-use short and simple file names
-save even in the root of google drive
-put the folder in offline mode

But the issue is still there.

If i save to desktop and move the file it works of course.
I can re-open the file but if i change something and click save it empties the file and it gets zero bytes again.

If i export a pla from powerlanguage it works fine like any other export ...
Just workspaces!

feature_request_tiny.png 14:37  Feature request MC-2694 - The possibility to rename Watchlist windows
MultiCharts Support (MultiCharts) : Issue created
I trade Stock market and from time to time there is a need to have a few watchlists of stocks that belong to different economy sectors and I prefer not to mix them up in a single list. Just a good practice to separate instruments when you look across multiple stocks for potential trade.

Would be nice just to have the screeners in the way the are now, but with possibility to assign them a specific name instead of default "watchlist1,2,3" etc.

feature_request_tiny.png 10:18  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

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.

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.

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.
