NEW FEATURES

  • All standard signals and indicators in MultiCharts .NET have been verified to work identically to the ones in MultiCharts.
  • New constructor/attribute was added to manage partial exits from one entry order.
  • It looks like this – [SameExitFromOneEntryOnce = false/true]. The attribute looks like this – [ExitFromOneEntryOnce(ExitFromOneEntryOnce.FillAndKillExitOrder)].
  • Source code for functions was made accessible.
  • Added second-by-second Data Playback to 64-bit MultiCharts.
  • New status was added for order that were NOT confirmed by the user – “Ignored”.
  • MarketProfile (TPO) indicator was added to MultiCharts .NET. More info here –http://www.multicharts.com/discussion/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=10778.
  • New service window (permanently attachable, like the Data Window) was added for the Scanner.
  • Added a new tab in Order and Position Tracker called ‘Market Position History at Broker”, which tracks how MP changed over time on the account. This helps resolve any questions as to why an order could’ve been sent for X contracts, but the MP changed for Y contracts.
  • Added a new tab in Order and Position Tracker called ‘Alerts”, which tracks and displays all alerts generated by scripts.
  • Autotrading is now automatically turned on in workspaces in which it was enabled during shutdown. The user will be prompted for confirmation prior to start of autotrading. This is convenient for workspaces that have multiple charts enabled for autotrading.
  • Timeout can now be specified manually in the broker profile. This is particularly useful for Interactive Brokers to help with the following message: “Didn’t receive final status for the order”, and you’d like to increase the waiting time.
  • Updated Symbol Search for Bloomberg API (MC PRO version only).
  • Added a Symbol Dictionary for Bloomberg (MC PRO version only).
  • Ability to draw a horizontal or vertical TrendLine when holding down CTRL. More info here – http://www.multicharts.com/pm/viewissue.php?issue_no=MC-960.
  • New button “Turn AutoTrading Off” was added on the Order Confirmation dialog.
  • Custom Futures now supports symbols with the following symbology – “NIFTY10APRFUT” using Interactive Brokers data provider.

    Please add feature to specify symbol root when importing symbol list, else adding custom futures becomes a pain. Also add feature to merge realtime and historical in scanner.
