FESX and FDAX settings in Quotemanager

Hi Mike, I saw in MC Forum you had the same question.

Can someone please share with me the correct QuoteManager settings for FESX and FDAX and FGBL on EUREX?

Scale
Daily Limit
Min Movement
Big Point Value

I'm totally lost.

FESX = 1 Tick 10 Euro
FDAX = 1 Tick 25 Euro
FGBL = 1 Tick 10 Euro

Hi, and this works, did make a trade via MC?
The Point Value should be wrong..
1 Point = 2 Ticks = 25 Euro, instead of 1

Correct Settings. The Daily Limit is an old Tradestation field and isnt really used anymore.

For MultiCharts you can add a bid/ask dataseries so that your strategy can look to data2 or data3 for the bid and ask. For instruments like CL or ES, it is probably much easier to just add 1 tick of slippage, because it is extremely rare that the spread is more than 1 tick.

You can also tell MultiCharts to only count a trade as executed if price penetrates the price, so a long limit order would require price to go 1 tick 'against' you before it would be counted as filled, and a long profit target would need to trade 1 tick 'beyond' your target to be considered filled. These are options in the strategy menu.

Mike

Thanks Mike, will look into these.. MC might win me over after all if I can figure out the settings I want..

At the moment I'm setting up to switch from NT to MC. I really like MC DT.

Can anyone explain me the settings in chart trader:

6EH1.CME

Exit-strategy:
Breakeven:
Profit Target; Offset X ??
Stopp Loss; Offset X??

So, all I want is:
manual entry at 1,3680

attached order for target: 1,4000
attached order for stop loss: 1,3660

so bracket orders for both 20 ticks.

Yes, I found the "edit strategy and attach orders, " but what of the hell means "offset"?
Means offset a range between X points?

Support chat said:
But in general when you use this strategy ,you send stop and limit orders with prices AvgEntryPrice-offset*minmovePrice, AvgEntryPrice+offset*minmovePrice

thanks for help

these are my settings for 6E - Zenfire:

Symbol for march 2011: 6EH1
Symbol root: 6E
Datascource zenfire
exchange: cme

settings:
pricescale: 1/10000
dailylimit: 1000
min.movement 1
bigpoint value 125000

Does anyone know if and how MCDT saves and displays historical manual discretionary trades summary? It seems you need to have a signal on your chart to access the Strategy Performance Report, but you can't edit or create signals with the free version.

MC just released dom+chartrader. You can see it if you do to their website.


Have been using it for 6 months and have tech support to be excellent.

When you create the chart in MultiCharts use the 'merge' option on the instrument tab, then select one instrument (from quotemanger) for historical --- iqfeed if you want --- and then add a 2nd instrument for real-time (from quotemanager).

Personally I would just use IQfeed for both in this instance, but you can do it like the above, you just have to maintain two instrument mappings in quotemanager for each symbol -- one for iqfeed, one for zen. Another useful thing would be to have two separate charts of CL for instance, one powered by iqfeed (live) and one zen, so you can see the difference between the two.

Mike

You would be ok using IQfeed for the real-time chart even if trading through Zenfire, I assume because they match exactly?
