About MultiCharts Beta 3

The main theme of MultiCharts 7 Beta 4 were usability and stability – we fixed as many open issues found both internally and by our users as we could find, and added new features to accommodate requests by users. Several new features were introduced improving OpenPL calculations, behavior of scripts, Custom Futures, improvements to market data playback, and others. We fixed a number of issues that users found bothersome, and we fixed a large amount of bugs to improve overall performance and user experience. Next version will be Release Candidate, followed by the official release sometime in June 2011.


OpenPL Calculations

  • OpenPL from MBTrading broker can now be calculated based Trade PL, in addition to the current calculation based on Bid/Ask prices.


  • Price orders in autotrading would be canceled and sent again if the volume or price changed. Now these orders are no longer canceled – they are modified, which avoids losing your place in queue. Price order will be cancelled if the order type, or order direction, change.
  • A new signal was added to the standard signal set – “!From Broker To Strategy MP Synchronizer!”. This signal allows the user to synchronize an automatic strategy with the position at the broker – effectively allowing placing manual trades and then applying a strategy to take care of the exits. More info here –
  • Signals and indicators no longer turn OFF when there is not enough data on the chart. They remain ON, and when enough data is added, they immediately begin calculating.
  • New keywords were added to PowerLanguage – AvgEntryPrice_at_Broker and AvgEntryPrice_at_Broker_for_The_Strategy.
  • Drawings “Text”, “Arrow” and “Horizontal Line” now support multiple lines of text. More info here
  • Auto fill suggestions by PowerLanguageEditor were improved. More info here

Custom Futures Improvements

  • Custom Futures symbols now support symbols where month is indicated after the year (SGX exchange, eSignal data provider).
  • MultiCharts now supports Custom Futures contracts for Rithmic and Zen-Fire contracts that mark months with digits.
  • Custom Futures now supports symbols with the following symbology – “166030005” using Interactive Brokers data provider
  • Custom Futures now supports symbols with the following symbology – “FTI10068” using Interactive Brokers data provider.


  • Market Data Playback menu now has an option to “Skip ticks with identical price”.
  • Inactive accounts for Rithmic and Zen-Fire brokers are no longer displayed in the account selection dropdown.

    I’ll be the first to second Big Mike’s comment – NICE job MC team!

    Very glad I made the decision to commit to MC vs. the “other” 😉 so I can concentrate on trading vs. coding…

    When is going to be possible to optimize strategies with user defined indicators?
    For example with sharpe ratio
    When a 64bit version?

  5. Sheldon

    That is a huge question of mine. When are you guys going to do this in 64 bit?
    I have to use bar magnifier using tick data. It just uses too much memory for the 32 bit program. PLEASE!!
