I have been using multicharts for afew years now and i find it much more relaible then ninja trader, The support is excellent. Any problems i just get on a chat and if they cant talk me through anything they can fix it remotely. The software is constantly improving and the playback on the current beta incarnation is a great improvement.
I use it on multip[le screens .

I plan to put together some detailed performance testing, but just on very basics...

- two dataseries: 5m and 15m --- historical data for 1 year
- ema of both
- %R of 5m
- stoch of 5m
- 1 entry and exit condition

I found in MultiCharts I was getting about 30 iterations per second, and in NT about 15.

Both were maxing all 8 cores on my system.

I will spend more time on this in the future and record some results.

BTW, another real nice thing I like about MultiCharts. You can backtest on a chart and see entries/exits as you go and optimize/tune, or you can load the Backtester module (separate from charting module), and then backtest without it affecting the speed of your charting application.

You can also load more than one Backtest module at once, so you can backtest multiple strategies. This is useful if for instance you want to try 4 strategies and you know it will run for 4 hours, you can do them each overnight. In NT it is only possible to do one at a time.

One thing I very much DISLIKE about MultiCharts is the PowerLanguage editor. You can open multiple windows (one window per script), but the windows cannot be undocked from the primary PowerLanguage window. This basically means it is not multi-monitor friendly, you can't position multiple editor windows where you want them on your multiple monitors.

As someone who lives inside the editor all day, this is a major bad no no. I am going to contact MC support to make sure I haven't missed something.

Well I've got the futures.io (formerly BMT) CollectiveMA working in MultiCharts, but I am such a noob I literally don't know the best way to export it. There is nothing MultiCharts-specific about this EasyLanguage code, so I would prefer to export it in a way where TradeStation, Neo and MultiCharts can all easily import it.

Can someone with experience with this tell me the best way? I know I can just create a text file, but that requires someone to cut/paste/compile in their local editor. Is there not a simpler/easier way to do it (for import)?

If I am not mistaken, considering I only tried MC for about 30 days, you can only export studies as an XML or .SEF(read only) ... I dont think I had found a way to export into ELD... if you want I can take the code, paste it into TS8 and then export as an ELD and post it to the forum. let me know.

Actually the easiest way IS a text file. You can't export to .eld (another annoyance of mine) only .sef/.xml.

I save all my MC indicators in txt files. If I want in in .eld I open up TS and paste the code in there and export it.

No workaround that i'm aware of.
