Since MultiCharts 14 Release 2 you can connect Binance Futures and Binance Spot broker profiles.

OCO group is emulated by MultiCharts. Simulated OCO-group means that all OCO orders are sent to the broker, price is monitored by MultiCharts and once one of the orders is filled, other orders from this OCO group are cancelled by MultiCharts. When one of the OCO orders is filled, MultiCharts sends a command to cancel the second OCO order to the broker. Note that the second order may also be filled if price reaches its level before the cancellation is processed by the broker (see OCO-Orders Risk).

Binance Futures Broker Profile

All types of orders are supported:

  • Market orders
  • Limit orders
  • Stop orders
  • Stop-Limit orders

Binance provides information on the list of accounts, balance, and open positions. Equity is calculated by MultiCharts. Open position Profit/Loss and Unrealized Profit/Loss is calculated in MultiCharts as it is not provided by Binance.

Setting up Binance Futures Broker Profile

In the Binance Futures Properties window (see Managing Broker Profiles) enter the information provided by Binance.

1. Main tab:
  • Connectivity section

Enter your API key and Secret key for Binance. Select the USDT Futures server for unexpired futures or Coin Futures server for the futures with the expiry date. In the Currency section you can select the base currency.

  • Default Order Settings section

Select Time in Force. Binance has limitations for the number of requests from one IP per minute. Use the option Orders request waiting limits to enable automatic monitoring or requests from MultiCharts.

You can set the Timing security interval to specify the time during which the request is considered to be active. Enable the option Use heartbeats for connection loss detection to automatically restore the connection with the Binance server in case of temporary connection loss.

You can press the Reset button if you’d like to erase the cache with Binance positions from this tab.

Note: The Reset option will not close the position, there will be no changes performed at the broker, it will just clear MultiCharts internal data on Binance positions.
