Thanks Sam028 I had the wrong symbol so your advice got me a step in the right direction but it still won't connect and I think its cuz I have MB Navigator.

Maybe this weekend I'll remove it and download MB Desktop or Desktop Pro and see if that's the connection problem.

My problem MBT/MCDT was solved by the online support in less than 10 minutes...

I had a bad definition: for EURUSD, it has to be:
Symbol: EUR/USD
Category: Forex
Exchange: Forex

Check screenshot.

***** Update - I have been working with MC to help get Cumulative Delta tools built as a standard feature within their platform for several weeks now. At this point, they have built an initial capability to connect to DTN.IQ feed historical BID/ASK data in "beta" form (what NT7 does not have). They are going to incorporate this capability into MC 7 going forward which is great imo. If you want to start working with the MC CD tools available in "beta" at this time, I suggest you contact Jeff at MC for access ( jjenkins@MultiCharts.com ).


I have been super busy lately so sorry for such a long time since my last update!

Testing MultiCharts Discretionary Trader now.

Market order, reversal order and exit order correctly transmitted to broker software.

However, the $value of the position is not correctly displayed on the chart. For ES it dispalyed 0.50 cts instead of 30 dollars. Instrument is correctly configured.

I entered a position per market order, then I reversed it. There is no arrow for reversing the position and for exiting. Also no arrow for the next position that I opened.

It still feels a bit like work in progress. I have contacted support to find out what is wrong.

Fat Tails, check QuoteManager for that symbol, check that BigPointValue is correct.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Thanks, I did. BigPointValue for ES is 50. But the P&L shown by the chart trader is always around a few cents only.

Also, do you know, how I can configure the size of the DOM? It hangs around on my screen, I would love to have some more columns and adapt it to the vertical size of my screen.

My orders on ZenFire (futures) are not getting filled, but they get filled on PFG (forex). I've contacted Support by Email since Live Chat is currently closed for the day.

Sorry, I don't know. I was unable to test the DOM very much because they don't support TT FIX in the alpha build.

Hold your cursor at the double arrows above the PnL box and adjust the length of the dom/columns.

Thanks that worked! Did not see the small arrows and was too lazy to look it up in the help guide.

Multicharts I really appreciate you checking with the engineers about my connection problem but as soon as I downloaded MB Trading's Desktop Pro, which automatically removes MB Trading's Navigator, I was able to get MBT data into Multicharts.

Ninjatrader requires the old Navigator to connect to MB Trading for data:

NinjaTrader stock, futures and forex charting software and online trading platform. MB Trading Connection Guide.

... and MB Trading doesn't even offer the Navigator anymore at all. In the most recent release notes they say " MBT Navigator Pro has been rebranded as MBT Desktop Pro".

So everyone who uses MB Trading for Ninjatrader data and wants to try Multicharts will have to download MB Trading's Desktop or Desktop Pro to connect to Multicharts and then remove Desktop and download the Navigator from Ninjatraders site at the above link in order to use Ninjatrader again. Just so ya know!

Here is the response from our engineers - check your registry, it should look like the screenshot I attached to the post. Also check that the version of MbtCom.dll is not lower than 11.7.0.17 in the path that is in the screenshot.

If you need to, change CurrentDirectory, include the path where MB Trading MBNAvigatorPRo files are located. If the message disappears and the data stops coming in, send us the MC logs.
