I installed MC last night and this is the 1st thing looked for.... video to walk me thru the product... support does not provide!!! great disappointment. plenty of books on PL thou. I spent 2 month learning NT and now MC switch potential... MC not making easy.

Ask questions here and I or others will try to help. Once you get it setup, it's quite easy to use.

Does anyone know how I can change my chart X-axis to reflect exchange time instead of local time?

This is one thing NT could not do, and it has always been an issue for me. I sidestepped my disappearing Zen-fire symbols by subscribing to eSignal. I noticed that w/in eSignal, I seem to have the option of exchange time. I am hoping MC can too.

And I am delighted to hear MC will be adding updated docs & training materials. Webinars here on futures.io (formerly BMT) would be good too.

On your chart, go to Format Instruments, Settings, then choose Display: Time Zone = Exchange.

Thanks, Mike. Found it. Unfortunately, it will not let me change to exchange time! There are two bar series (both are the same instrument) but I get a pop-up error = Instruments from different time zones cannot be mixed. Please select local Time Zone for all instruments. Arghh!

I would call this a bug as there is only one instrument. Hmmm, now I get to test their bug list site...

Remove the second data series, then make the change. Then re-add the second data series.

Ok, finally made it through the thread - lots of work, but very rewarding. I'm also on Multicharts DT and though it has a steeper learning curve than the software I've been testing before, I'm really starting to like it.
I've also had excellent support from Andrew via the live chat and it's good to see that MC are also present here, answering questions.

Thanks to Big Mike and all other who have been providing the source code to your studies, signals. As a hobby programmer it's a great resource, having someone's code to look at.

Hopefully I can get the back testing on my demo account up as soon as possible.

Thanks all, for a helpful thread and forum.

Hi guys,
I installed Multicharts Discretionary Trader today morning (central EUR time), just to give it a try (after reading some nice feedback here).

So, it installed, I ve set up basics of my system, and connected to my IB feed, anxious to try the new Chart trader and DOM. I trade TF, so I kicked it in and I must admit I was like WOW, I can trade live for free! It looks so nice! I can ZOOM (YEAH! :-) )! It loaded historical tick data by itself (2 days back)!

Then I made a few trades with 1 contract, decided it s enough for the day, took screenshot for my trade log.

Out of all that happiness caused by a nice piece of software, I CLICKED on something and BOOM, my little arrows indicating entries & exits were all misplaced (shifted somewhere out of market reach).

Does anyone have a clue what caused this misplacement of entries and exits? (WTH did I click on?)

I m attaching two screenshots:
1) short after the trades (OK)
2) shortly after the CLICK (not OK!)

May the market be with you

Working on trying to figure out what you clicked. It's alpha and all, but I've never seen it MCDT do that.

In the last year or so it seems their release cycle slowed down. But I would expect 7.0 beta should be out any day.

You may be able to ask them for a patch file. They've given me a 'quick fix' before, without waiting for a new beta build.

IB historical tick data and MCH7


Hi again,
>Multicharts
Thanks I appreciate it, i ll definitely be trying it more and more, and if everything works OK (I am a bit worried now about using alpha or beta product for live trading), you probably got a new customer .

The problem with misplaced trade markers dissapeared after I completely reloaded data.

OK, now there is something I hope you help me understand. I use IB data feed and IB support strictly told me that they dont provide historical tick-by-tick data (IB aggregated tick data), and yes, Ninja Trader really cant load historical tick data from IB feed (minute data yes, not tick data). But MultiCharts downloads some 30min chunks of tick data from IB servers (been checking event log) and it works like a charm! Was IB support wrong or is there something i am missing?

Petr
