MB Trading software should be installed, but one can’t use it simultaneously with MultiCharts.
Open position Profit/Loss is calculated in MultiCharts as it is not provided by MB Trading API.
Unrealized Profit/Loss for the account is calculated in MultiCharts.
MB Trading does not support Native One-Cancels-Others group. In this case MultiCharts emulates OCO group on its end. 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 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).
