I'm curious to know, how do you chart a watchlist, market, industry, ... in one view meaning in one chart in other softwares?
For example you do an exploration and the exploration or backtest result list gets auto-moved to watchlist A.
Now let's say the watchlist containing the result list consists of 25 symbols, 50 symbols, etc.
In AB you could now view, scroll, zoom all of those symbols at once. If your monitor is small then you limit the number to let's say 9 symbols per scrolling page. If your monitor is large enough you could just view all symbols at once i.e. setting to 6 rows x 5 columns or 10 x 10.
Below AFL code showing 4 x 3 (customizable via parameters). Haven't found a way doing that elsewhere.

The whole chart including price and axes etc was done using GFX.
First and this foremost thanks @greenroomhoo for setting up this thread.
Frankly speking I've quite hooked up with an idea to migrate form Multicharts as my primary research tool to some other. I've pretty much got to a point when I quite fed up with the minor issues that are still and still persisting in that software which gradually increase my frustration. Therefore, I've decided to carry on with the current testing with MC and try to learn something else in the meantime and I've put my attention on Amibroker. I see a lot of positive feedback on the web regarding the flexibility, speed and overall robustness of Amibroker. I would be very grateful with some hints & tips especially from someone migration from Multicharts to Amibroker.
AmiBroker looks interesting to me. I've just purchased the professional package bundle, and will try and spend some time with it soon to see how it stacks up. My biggest interest is the portfolio level backtesting.
But my biggest concern is the handling of tick level data in backtests and optimizations, as it is extremely unclear as to whether or not this is really supported. I often test years of tick data per instrument at a time. I am not concerned about system resources, as my workstation has 32GB of ram. I am instead concerned about accuracy and simply whether or not it will work with that much data at once. I googled and read forums but was unable to find any hint of an answer, so thought I would give it a shot myself.
