I'm looking at Multicharts and for the start I have downloaded and installed their free version MCDT.

I try to setup a Scanner window and have run into what looks like a basic problem. My data feed is DTN IQFeed.

I inserted the DAX.X ticker into a row, opted for weekly resolution. But all I see is "Last" and "Close". "High", "Low" and "52 week High/Low" are empty. In contrast to that "ADX" and "ATR" show a value.

What am I doing wrong? As far as I understand it the values I want to display are built-in standard values, no studies needed?

Many Thanks.

It's called "Real-Time Market Scanner" for a reason. Tried it today during market hours and now I see the fields are filled. Except for "52 week High/Low".

That's a pity, I hoped I could use the Market Scanner as a kind of quote board for weekly analysis.

I did not see Quote Boards in MC? Is that correct?

Many Thanks
