How to set up Multicharts for MB Trading FOREX

Multicharts is an excellent trading app(aside from the absence of a ray tool) but getting it set up to work with MB Trading is not exactly what you would call straight forward or user friendly. However, it is not difficult. I've just finished the task and I thought I'd put up a tutorial for those that might not like to spend the kind of time I had to spend to get it figured out(many hours.)

This tutorial will assume that you have Multicharts 7 or DT installed and have not changed anything from their installed settings.

Open a Quote Manager window.

Click on the Quotes & Exchanges icon to open that window. Click Add... to add a new Exchange.

There are 2 tabs in that window. Make them look like this. Make SURE to select MBTX(the short name you just put in the window as your ECN) and not the MBFX that is in there. The MBFX settings are not correct.

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

Now, let's get some symbols in there! Multicharts has not gone to any trouble whatsoever to help out MB Trading's clients by setting up symbols that work for them. So the user gets to enter each and every symbol manually. It's great fun.

You do this by clicking on the add symbol button, and hit ok.

After that, there are 3 tabs of settings for each symbol. Make sure they are all like this:

You're done!

Wouldn't it be sweet if there were a way to save all this to a file and just import it once(which you will probably have to do)? Well, wouldn't you know it, there is. I have attached a file that you can import and it will set all of this up for you in one shot. This file only has the 8 majors, so if you want the others you can add them yourself and then save that to another export so you can share with friends or whatever...

In the Quote Manager Window, File>Import Data>Import Instruments and import the file(MB_Trading-Exchange_and_Base_Pairs.qmd) that I have attached. You need to unzip it, because I could not upload a file with the .qmd extension.

That will bring in the pairs, set up the ECN and the session times.

You're ready to push the big button!

These settings have been working for me for a couple days now. The only issue that I can see for you could be the session hours. I used my local time of 14:00 PST for the session templates. You may need to modify the session template if you are not in the Pacific Time Zone. Not sure.

Yeah, you posting on an already two year old thread. Have you tried searching the MultiCharts wiki for MB Trading? That information is up-to-date.
