Hi,

When you add your two instruments in MultiCharts itself (I am not talking about QuoteManager), have you chosen "Local" on the Settings tab for the two? (see picture)

OK. What is exactly your problem? You say it does not work. But what does not work?

well , i try to calculate the spreadratio=close of data1 / close of data2

so these 2 date must match on the same x-axle

but the problem it cant match even i change these 2 to local time zone(the photo)

(the data before 2012/6 is imported by ASCII maping, after that is from real time data source,and then the blank show up)

i wanna know the steps to make it work

Sorry... but your description of the problem is still not clear to me.
I know it is clear in your head, and perhaps for others, but still not to me.
What is the problem? What does "does not match" mean?

1. What "blank" are your talking about? The blanks between the candles? Is it the problem?
2. What is your timeframe ? Daily?
3. If you do not pay attention to the blanks, are the HLOC of the candles correct?
4. In Quote Manager, what is the name of DAX Exchange?
5. When you go and see the details of this Exchange in "Tools / Exchanges & ECNs", what is the time zone of this exchange?
6. In Quote Manager, what is the name of FTSE Exchange?
7. When you go and see the details of this Exchange in "Tools / Exchanges & ECNs", what is the time zone of this exchange?
8. In Quote Manager, what are the sessions of your DAX instrument?
9. In Quote Manager, what are the sessions of your FTSE instrument?

I do not think that the bold answers above are possible.

In QuoteManager, go to "Tools" / "Exchanges & ECNs".
There is a list of exchanges.
Find "EUREX". Highlight it.
Click on "Edit".
Choose the 2nd tab "Time Zone".
What is the time zone? Should be displayed in UTC+x or UTC-y.

Do the same with LIFFE.
What is its time zone?

Hi,

What does "total spread trading result" mean?

Why do you use the portfolio backtester, and not the "normal" backtester?
