Millisecond Improvement

ASCII Export/Import can now handle milliseconds as well as seconds. Added a new checkbox for “Export milliseconds” on ASCII Export dialog window. If the option is checked then milliseconds will be exported, if this option is unchecked then only seconds will be exported (the way it was implemented before). Files with millisecond data can be imported on ASCII Import using a time template like *h:*m:*s.*f

Global PlayBack Improvement

Data Playback is a useful tool for traders wishing to stream data step-by-step data backward and forward in order to see how their strategy would behave in real-time. It allows playback of market data with the specified speed and resolution. When the Global mode is selected, all the data series on all opened windows of all the workspaces of one MultiCharts instance will be played. In this case the starting point of the playback will be the same for all charts and scanner windows. Now you can use Global playback in Tick by Tick mode as well as Minute by Minute, Hour by Hour and so on.

Command Line keywords

Command Line commands are now available through the language in both MultiCharts. This means it’s now programmatically possible to possible to insert symbol, change symbol, insert indicator, insert signal, reload data (all data, certain resolution, interval (N days), all charts), change chart symbol name, change symbol resolution, turn off auto trading, show report, change bar spacing.

For your convenience we have added description of all the commands for Command Line toolbar in PowerLanguage Help Guide and in MultiCharts Wiki: and
