A quote from their support: "In MultiCharts .NET Starter Edition you can have only 2 symbols in the database at the same time." Which means at any time you can only chart, backtest or trade on those two symbols. If you want to chart a third symbol, you will have to delete one of the existing two first in your database I suppose.
There's no paper trading capabilities on MC but that tool, according to a thread on the forum, is being developed with no ETA though.
The way the regular MC works is no different from the .NET.
The manual for the regular version should be the same for the .NET.
What is lacking in .NET is a manual for the libraries and stuff for programmers. Everything else, menus, options and the like you will find on the regular manual.
In terms of commissions... are you talking about strategies?
I'm really not the best person to talk about automatic strategies but on the top left chart you have an option for the strategies properties where you set the commissions.

Thanks for the help, it was my fault, for CGQ you need new login details, about 2 years ago I tried Multicharts and it was easy to set up but I just remember back then I was still using ZenFire.
I asked for a demo CQG just to try MC and it's working now.
One more thing, I read on MC website that they added a simulator engine for ZenFire some time ago, did not find anything about CGQ so, I assume it does not have one right? I can't see it on mine but since I have a sim account... It could be disabled.

Well done, now the competition will be very tough, I do not know how other platforms will survive when there is a free alternative ;-)))))))))))
* If investing gets too difficult for a seventh grader to understand, the system is needlessly complex
* Markets produce an enormous volume of information, much of which is redundant
* In every game and con there's always an opponent, and there's always a victim. The trick is to know when you're the latter, so you can become the former
