FREE 30 days of real-time futures, index and FX data from DTN IQFeed
DTN IQFeed, one of the best feeds available for MultiCharts, now offers a free 30 day trial for any MultiCharts user, no credit card required. The startup wizard now gives you an option to fill out a simple form and get instant access to real-time futures, index and FX data without leaving MultiCharts. There are also new built-in workspaces that automatically give you most popular IQFeed symbols. DTN IQFeed data features:

Volume Delta chart type
Volume Delta (comparable to FootPrint®* chart) chart type is now available. This chart lets you see how many trades were done at ask and bid on each price level within a bar. The bars look like boxes with appropriate numbers displayed within them. There are two calculation methods: “Ask Traded vs Bid Traded” and “Up Ticks vs Down Ticks”. Three display options available: “Bid and Ask Volume”, “Total Volume”, and “Delta (Ask – Bid Volume)”. You can also the numbers as percent.

Cumulative Delta chart type
Cumulative Delta (also known as CD chart) chart type is now available. Cumulative Delta is based on direction-based volume accumulation, not on price. The scale of the chart shows volume and bars represent accumulated delta (buy – sell) of the volume for specified resolution. In trending markets CD will move into positive or negative values, while it will oscillate around zero in non-trending markets.

Volume Profile (also known as VP) was complete rethought and built from the ground up. It’s now an advanced chart attribute with multiple options and display methods, and it’s available on every chart. Volume Profile tracks trading activity volume across different price levels and varying time length.

Flexible Commission Rules
You can now add flexible commission rules to make backtesting more precise. With varying combinations, it’s now possible to account for virtually any commission setup around the globe. Commissions can be set though a new window in Strategy Properties. Rule options include calculating commission in real-time, after every trade or once every day, resetting volume counter after every trade/monthly, commission limits and per Trade/Contract modes in dollar amounts and percent.

Choose your currency for calculating PnL
You can now see PnL calculated and displayed in the currency of your choice. If you want to see PnL in JPY for instance, changes will be seen on charts, DOM and in the Order and Position Tracker. Current exchange rates are continuously pulled from our FX servers, so there’s no need to enter the conversion rate manually.
Order and Position Tracker improvements
“Market Position History at Broker” tab was added to OPT. It tracks how MP changed over time directly on the account. This helps resolve any questions as to why an order could have been sent for X contracts, but the MP changed for Y contracts.
“Alerts” tab was added to OPT. It tracks and displays all alerts generated by scripts. Essentially, it provides a complete history of all alerts generated by scripts, so you don’t need to worry about missing an alert.
“Accounts” tab in Order and Position Tracker can now be shown in any user-defined currency.
Second-by-second playback for 64-bit MultiCharts
Second-by-second mode for Data Playback was added to 64-bit MultiCharts. In global mode the tick charts do not currently update in-sync with time-based charts.
AvaTrade data feed and broker added
AvaTrade (formerly AvaFX) data feed and broker were added. AvaTrade is broker that is well known around the world. They currently offer Forex trading and quotes, but plan to integrate futures as well.
WeBank data feed and broker added
WeBank was established in 1999 and is one of the leading Italian banks and online brokerages with over 80,000 clients.
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) support for Email Alerts in indicators
Added Secure Socket Layer (SSL) support to email alerts. This means you can now use most modern email providers for email alerts, such as Gmail.
Change save locations for databases, studies, logs and file cache
Users can now define preferred paths and locations for MultiCharts’ databases, studies, logs and file cache. This may be especially useful if you have an SSD drive or not enough permissions in certain shared environments.
Quick access dropdown was added to the chart for recently used symbols and resolutions. You can now quickly switch between symbols and resolution directly from the Status Line of the chart.
Exit Strategy behavior changed
Exit strategy behavior was changed:
1) Strategies that were applied to active orders no longer “jump” onto the active position after the parent order was filled. They remain active and keep protecting orders that were generated by the parent order.
2) If an exit strategy is applied to the open position then everything works almost like before – position changes are monitored, but there’s a minor nuance. When calculating reaction to position changes it’s taken into account that there are strategies applied to filled orders and their effect on the overall position. In other words, strategies applied to the position protect the remainder that is not protected by strategies applied to individual orders.
3) Strategies applied to positions and strategies applied to orders will be visually different on both on the chart and in the DOM.
More info here – http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=11446
4) If a position was opened by an order that has an exit strategy attached from a flat position, then this strategy is applied to the entire position and “protects” it.
Optimization improvements and new behavior
- When input is being used in optimization (individual checkbox is checked) value in CurrentValue field is not editable and shows currently selected value. Start Value, End Value and Step values are editable. Optimization is performed from Start Value to End Value with the specified Step.
- When input is being NOT used in optimization (individual checkbox is UNchecked) value in CurrentValue field is not editable and shows currently selected value. Start Value, End Value and Step values are NOT editable. Start Value = End Value = Current Value (they all change together) and Step = 1. This is needed so that CurrentValue gets saved in the workspace if user did not apply new values for inputs and closed the report and optimization dialog.
- Optimization of the strategy is performed using the unchanged value of the current input which is shown in the Current Value field. When applying new values from Optimization Report the new values for inputs not participating in the optimization is taken from the Current Value.
- If checkbox gets unchecked the Start Value, End Value and Step remember their values (while dialog is open)
- If checkbox gets checked the Start Value, End Value and Step use the values they remembered on Step 3. This is for those cases when there are many inputs and user accidentally ticked one.
- Last values with which optimization was performed get saved in the workspace.
- Previous optimization report with results can now be viewed if new optimization was cancelled. More info here –http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=11693.

When can we expect 8.5 .NET?
Probably within a couple of weeks
Wow! Just Wow!
I just upgraded to 8.5 because I was instructed that it was the solution to the problem of latency between Interactive Brokers’ open position P&L and the MultiCharts open position P&L.
I have just run a test and am still experiencing up to 30 seconds delay in the Order & Position Tracker Open P&L and IB’s P&L. Please advise if there are settings that need to be updated.
I am using IB TWS version 935.3 with Java 1.6.0_31
