Arrow Reader 5 *
As a Multicharts user, I am not too happy with their market replay functionality which got left behind in terms of integration with some more exotic features MC has released. For example, while in play-back you cannot place trades on the chart.
Consequently, my way to practice off-line sim-trades is just by scrolling a chart back to its first page of bars, and progressing the chart bar by bar to the right. I usually place arrows to mark entry/exit points in the market, and I do scale out.
It would be great to have an indicator (let's say), that would read the arrows I place on the bars and issue entry/partial exit/exit decisions that I could later analyze in Multichart's performance report.
Potential solution:
- Build such an indicator as described above (able to read some custom drawings such as arrows and issue signals)

Build such an arrow-reader indicator, which does:

- Read all arrows one by one, and enters long/short, depending on arrow orientation;
- Size is given by the number placed on the text attribute of the arrow
- The program can scale out - let's say, one enters long with 3 contracts and has 3 sell orders for 1 contract each later on.

Any suggestions for improvements welcome!
