Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

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.

Improving flexibility for discretionary traders

Having seen the features of a new platform developed in Austria, some improvements for discretionary traders should be incorporated in Multicharts.
Those are,
1. the ability to have a stop which modifies the position size depending on its location relative to the corresponding entry order. In case one would like to entry with a limit order and the last significant low should be used as a location for the corresponding stop, the new type of order would adjust automatically the position size corresponding to the predefined maximum loss amount.
2. The ability to attach a exit order to the value delivered by an indicator or a hand drawn trendline.
3. Two types of stops
  • Hard Stop if touched a market order is executed immediatly
  • Soft Stop In case of an sell stop If touched during a bar without the closing of that bar below the stop level the stop is not executed.

The issue can be found at the following link MC-1527

Making Unmanaged Orders Available for Backtesting (MC.Net)

Description
For MC .Net, currently, we have to develop two sets of order codes if we want to use unmanaged orders in realtime. The first set is for backtesting (since unmanaged orders are not supported during backtesting) and another for realtime. Make unmanaged orders available for backtesting would greatly reduce our development time (managing both codes and coding it).

Here is the link, MC-1584

Automatic position sizing based on risk amount

Please vote for: MultiCharts Project Management - Issue MC-1926 - Automatic position sizing based on risk amount

Description:
When placing an entry order with a stop loss order attached to it there should be an option to automatically calculate and set the position size based on a set risk amount. When you change the entry order level or the attached stop loss order level, position size changes accordingly based on the set risk amount.
This is a basic money management technique. If this routine would be automated, it would provide traders with more time to check the quality of their trades instead of on calculating the position size manually.

AgenaTrader has implemented this very well (with even more risk and moneymanagement options). Here is the link to their online help where their implementation of automated risk and money management is explained: AgenaTrader online help

There are a number of other money management features which would be nice.

True, but smaller requests might be implemented quicker.

Please, vote

Without the first two, Multicharts' backtesting is just as good as any other one. Funny enough, AmiBroker is actually doing MC-1881. With first two included, MC becomes a bit different.
The rest of the below, would make MC a bit of a much better tool.

MC-1881 - Walk Forward Test Engine - Generate code to include optimized OOS values for each OOS time-interval

MC-1905 - Walk Forward Test Engine - MonteCarlo Simulation for Backtest and for Walk Forward Test Engine

MC-1938 - One Shop Stop for Platform & Data Feed - Free with EOD
