Hi all,

Now that MCDT going down NT path do you think that NT user will shift to MCDT?

I don't think so as MCDT has no option for user built indicators and strategy. For those 'experimenting' Ninja is still an attractive proposition.

I am not sure they have the MC 'lite' feature set quite right yet. You want as many people as possible to be encouraged to upgrade (pay), I am not sure that how things are bundled now that is the case.

Tried it out last night. Just have one main concern which is about range bars (point bars in MC). There is a gap between each of the bars. If using a 3 point bar and the first bar is 1.0000,0 to 1.0003,0, the next bar (assuming price is rising) shows as 1.0003,4 to 1.0006,4. So there is a gap there of around .3 pips on each bar (see screenshot). The second bar should be 1.0003,1 to 1.0006,1.

I'm using MBT and a Eur/Usd chart.

Anyone know why this is happening and/or how to fix it?

I posted this in their DT forum but seeing as how the support is limited for DT figured I'd post here too.

There's a bunch of different ways to make range bars on different platforms and I like their style.

Hi,

There are actually a two ways of drawing point bars in MultiCharts, but few people know about it. There is the default way, which we maintain to be correct. However, before it was this way, they were drawn in a different way, which was later corrected. I am posting screenshots of the two different ways.

The original way was not removed, but it is not present in the menus (kind of like an Easter Egg, I suppose). To access the original way of forming bars, in the command line on the MC toolbar type in "x point(original)" without the quotation marks. No space between the word point and the bracket. Replace x with a number (like 3, or 5).

May I ask something? I have decided to start using multicharts. The reason is that my Ninja crashed three times this week in open positions.... And I have reinstalled it last week, cleaned bad registry entries and temp files in my PC. I have Core i7 860, 8GB RAM (2000MHz) and for Ninja thats not enough :-/

So - in Multicharts I need colorized OHLC. (Red bars with lower close than open, Green bars with higher close than open). I found here some script from bigmike I think... But I am not fan of programming. Could you please help me with this? How to paint this OHLC correctly?

I was lost at first but figured out you have to use the Custom Paintbar Study. Studies in MC are like Indicators in NT. The paintbar study will add an invisible layer on top of the chart that paints over the bars to your specification. So the layer is invisible except for the paint over the bars. If you've worked with photoshop it's like those layers.

You'll also need to tell the paint bars how to behave. I made the regular bars green. Then used the paintbar study to paint the bars red as needed. I used range bars (point bars) and wanted bars that close lower than they opened to paint red. I don't have MC here right now but I think I changed the default paint setting to "Close < Open" without the quotations.

The bars in that screenshot I posted previously are painted differently than what I just mentioned. That's because when I posted that pic I didn't know that "Close < Open" is what was needed.

And success for myself as well. Ohyay. Just figured out the reason I had a gap. I needed to select 1/100000 instead of 1/10000 in the setup of the quote manager. Then, just like in NT, had to set the point value to 30 for a 3 range bar. Ohrightbaby.
