32-bit vs 64-bit

MultiCharts is available in both 32 and 64-bit versions. Depending on your operating system, you can use the appropriate one. 64-bit has a major advantage because it’s not limited to the amount of RAM it can use, while 32-bit can only use 2 GB of RAM. This means the 64-bit version can handle many more open charts, more indicators and a lot more data.

Scripting language

MultiCharts supports EasyLanguage to a maximum possible extent. Studies are first translated into C++ and then efficiently compiled, resulting in the extremely fast execution speed that is so critical for handling very large volumes of data. Nearly all of the advanced capabilities of EasyLanguage, including custom DLLs, are supported by MultiCharts.

Development technologies

MultiCharts’ architecture is written in C++, and it uses hardware resources to the fullest possible extent. It is a multi-process application that efficiently passes information between the processes to achieve maximum efficiency. MultiCharts runs parallel tasks on each processor, which dramatically improves the system performance. MultiCharts technology is also multiple-monitor friendly, allowing multiple chart windows to be detached from the main application and displayed across all of the available monitors simultaneously.

Multi-threading

MultiCharts is a multi-threaded application. This means that the more CPU cores your computer has, the faster backtesting and optimization in MultiCharts will work. With modern multi-core processors we can now meet traders’ rapidly growing demands for speed and efficiency in trading platforms.
