This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

bigmike has a tutorial and sample code to do scalings. I would copy his code and modify it for your purpose.

Do you have a link for where this is located?

Ok, so I wanted to explain a difference that I noticed between NT and MC when coding entries.

In NT, when you code an entry (in my experience, which is limited) you have to code each lot if your goal is to have multiple targets. For example, if you want to enter a buy and have three targets:

In NT it would look like this:

//Conditions for entry would be here, then:

EnterLong (100000, "Long1");
EnterLong (100000, "Long2");
EnterLong (100000, "Long3");

In MC the same entry for three targets looks like this:

//Conditions for entry are here, then:

Buy ("Enter Long") 300000 contracts next bar at Market;

From what I can see, the difference is that NT creates three separate orders which are then tied to three separate exits, while MC groups all the orders together and uses the exits to manage how much is exited at a time.

That's a beginner's interpretation of what is happening. Can anyone confirm or improve my findings?

i am newbie, can any experienced MC programmer post the anwser to this question please
