MultiCharts 6.0 final released today

Download

They also launched a new website, a few links are not working but I will be installing 6.0 final in a moment.

Here is a list of changes for 6.0 final:


Quoting 
MultiCharts 6.0 Release
FEATURES
Order & Position Tracker
Allows monitoring orders, positions, and logs during auto trading.
PowerLanguage
· New keywords added to ensure compilation of certain scripts, which compile successfully in TS.
· The 'reciprocal(x) = 1/x' command has been added to PowerLanguage.
· New keywords have been added to allow access to trade properties if pyramiding is turned on.
Data
· The ‘Open’ field in the status line. Values for the Open field will now be fed into the status line for IB symbols.
· Ability to add and work with symbols of Stock category from Open E Cry data feed.
· IQFeed Data Source. Symbol lookup for Stock, Index, Future, Option, Forex, Fund, Bond, Spread is now available.
· MB Trading is now supported as a data feed and a broker.
· PFGBEST is now supported as a data feed and a broker.
· Dukascopy is now supported as a data feed and a broker.
· It is now possible to receive continuous data from Barchart.com by adding the @ sign before a symbol name. For example, @ESU9 will receive data for previous months.
· Zen-Fire, Rhythmic Trader data source. Now provides history on trades for minute (1 week available) and tick (1 day available) data.
· Holiday List. It is now possible to specify dates to be ignored in indicator and strategy calculations.
Auto Trading
· Trade through several accounts from different charts with Trading Technologies broker plug-in.
· If pyramiding is enabled and several simulated entries are made before Autotrading is turned on, software now takes them into consideration as separate entries and is able to use "exit from entry" logic in asynchronous Autotrading mode on those entries.
· Unfilled Strategy Order Placement is now available for the Synchronous mode.
· The 'Assign the Initial Market Position at the Broker' dialog window is now shown at all times, even when the strategy has a market position of zero.
· It is now possible to access the account list for Zen-Fire on the Order Settings page.
· FA-Account settings for IB have been expanded.
· An option to "Recalculate the strategy on broker events" has been added to the 'Autotrading' options tab.
· An error message is now displayed if a connection attempt is made during End-Of-Day.
· MaxOpenPositionProfit is now sent to generate special orders.
· "Replace Unfilled Stop/Limit Orders To Market" for synchronous auto trading has been added.
· It is now possible to receive real-time data from the chart to monitor special orders, replacement, and to calculate Open Position Profit.
· Open E Cry Broker Plugin.In addition to providing data for charts, this popular broker can now be used for auto trading from MultiCharts.
· Interactive Brokers. Financial Advisor Settings have been improved. The Account field has been added. Three settings options are available: 1. Automatic (Group, Percentage, and Method must be specified); 2.Manual (only Profile must be specified); 3. Single account (only Account must be specified).
· Interactive Brokers. Either native or MultiCharts emulated OCO groups are now available.
· Interactive Brokers. The OCO order size can now be reduced.
· Zen-Fire, Rhythmic Trader. An account list can be received in the Order Settings tab.
· Zen-Fire, Rhythmic Trader. Initial Market Position can now be assigned in the Synchronous mode.
Charting
· Data Playback. Allows playing historical data either tick-by-tick or on the bar basis. In the Global Mode, data can be played back on multiple symbols in one or more charts. Adjustable playback speed; ability to skip X bars/ticks forward/back. The playback is controlled by familiar DVD-player-like buttons and a cursor to select the starting point.
· Custom Continuous Futures. Allows creating continuous back-adjusted data series from individual futures contracts. The feature is indispensable when working with brokers and data feeds that provide individual contracts only, thus making it impossible to test strategies and compromising the accuracy of indicators that require a lot of historical data. Various back-adjustment methods are available as well as the creation of continuous data series based on the nearest or future contracts.
· The ‘Unverified’ status for uncompiled studies. When opening a workspace with uncompiled studies, these studies will remain on the chart with the ‘unverified’ status.
· Time to Close Countdown. Is shown below the price marker and shows how many minutes, seconds, ticks, or volume are left till bar close. The option can be enabled in Window -> Y-Price Scale -> Countdown.
· Point & Figure, Kagi, Renko, Line Break Charts. Two chart-plotting algorithms are now available: starting at the beginning of the requested period or starting at the beginning of each session. In the first case, same-symbol charts having different start dates will be different. In the second case, charts will be identical irrespective of the starting point; however, data that were not included in the last bar of a session will not be carried over to create the first bar of the next session.
· The ‘Unverified’ status for uncompiled studies. When opening a workspace with uncompiled studies, these studies will remain on the chart with the ‘unverified’ status.
· Precise Price Marker. The pointed marker makes traders’ work easier by providing a more accurate price level display compared to the conventional rectangular marker, thus making a trader’s work easier. The marker style (old or new) can be toggled in Format Window -> Y-Price Scale -> Precise Marker.
Real-time Market Scanner
· Status Line values are reflected with appropriate colors, relative to price movements.
· Right-click does not cancel highlighting. When right-clicking on a highlighted cell in a scanner window, the cell remains highlighted.
· Scanner rows can now be selected, copied, pasted, and/or deleted.
· Groups can be now created by entering //Group in a cell, where Group is the title of a group.
· Groups can be collapsed/expanded.
· Data snapshot can be exported to Microsoft Excel.
· Sorting criteria and direction now appear in the column titles.
· Fields provided by a data feed, such as Low 52 week, BidSize, TimeStamp etc., can be viewed in the scanner without the help of indicators. A field can be selected by right-clicking the scanner header.
· In the Scanner it is now possible to copy/paste several rows.

Hello GT!


I was going to let you all know I have talked with MC and provided them with a whole bunch of detailed information so they could build up Cumulative Delta to add to their charting package (as a standard volume study like Investor RT has). I have a scheduled call with them again on Monday and I am hopeful they will tackle this simple project so that MC has Cumulative Delta candlesticks capability as a standard volume study (BID/ASK differential parsed volume.....the MARKET ORDER driven order flow). I have recently started to use MC so I could have a charting platform to do simple back testing work, and I REALLY REALLY want CD volume capability within the charting app.

I will update everyone as I get new info next week!

It would be really great to have CD volume bars built within package. Currently I've to code it custom way. Though MC have ability to build OHLC bars ( only on realtime , not in past data ) , i do hardly use those CD bars.

thanks again FT,
Will be waiting for ur updates.

Hi, FulcrumTrader! Good to hear that from you. Hope MC add this feature soon to the software. I've talked some months ago with one support guy, and he told me MC already supported this kind of analysis, but I was sure it didn't. The guy didn't know his software very well at that time!

Keep us in touch with the news!

Mike,

What version are you using?
I want to upgrade to the latest version but I'm nervous on pulling the trigger. Is it true that the possibility of indicators I dloaded from here may not work on the latest NT?

I am using MultiCharts 6.0 final.

If you are talking about NT (?) then yes, there are a lot of complications with newer indicators that were created throughout the 20 beta cycle versions, but this is not the thread for that.

There is a thread on the MultiCharts forum that covers Zen Fire, but basically go into QuoteManager, Tools -> Data Sources, edit Zen Fire and add your credentials, then add new instruments. You can look here for Zen Fire symbology, and if you need specific help on instrument settings you can look at the existing symbols in QuoteManager for guidance, or there is a thread on the MultiCharts forum that can help, or you can ask here. There is not a symbol dictionary for Zen Fire yet so the instrument settings are not automatic, but you only need to set them the first time.

Then in MultiCharts you'll see new Instrument data source settings to use Zen Fire.
