Go to File - New - Order and Position tracker, and look at the log. What are the error messages?

1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.

Good to know.

I resolved the issue with the introduction of the orders with the GTC option. I thought it should/could work on the day (GMT open-close). However, It works with the GTC option.

I wonder, is there anyway to leave this option as the default option as well as the contract size (either in thousands/lots)?

Also, where can I find programmers on power language?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I am a scalper/daytrader.

How do I set a disaster stop in MCDT in case the internet/power goes out?

I would like to set it once so I dont to do it again every time I enter a new trade.

You can configure a template to auto-attach a stop loss order to new positions. Just right-click on the template in the DOM, and hit "auto attach".

I am hoping future versions of @MultiCharts will allow us to set auto-attach as default. I've requested it, and I think it is important. More than a few times I've loaded a new DOM and forgot to hit the stupid button, then put orders in the market with no stops.

Not sure, if I was forced to guess I would say MC 7.1 which is due end of year.
