I'm sorry BM, I just had to vent. I really didn't mean to go off on you like that.





LOL, I'm not sure what the deal was with that. I had to read that other post a few times... then go back and read mine again...

Anyone know that MC 7 will have ATM strategies and direct jforex api for dukascopy ?

i love ATM in ninja 7 so if if MC 7 does have it together with jforex api to dukascopy i will consider to purchase.

TQ

Can't tell you anything about jforex, but it does have an ATM. I would say it is better than NT in technical features, but still rough around the edges visually or cosmetically, which is less important.

Attached is a short video.

Hello Mike,

Could you please tell us/me how you have set up your custom contract?

I've been looking at the symbol guide and have found the @ES# and @ES#C (Front Month back-adjusted history) as alternatives, but it would be nice to know from what you wrote how you have set up yours.

Thanks,
Laurus

As I remember it, it was two or three steps.

First, use the symbol dictionary to add all the front months to your quotemanager in the proper Exchange.

Then go to Custom Futures, right-click and add, select the root and exchange, define rollover conditions, and good to go.

@MultiCharts - the Help -> Check for update is broken, it never works... I can't think of a single time it has worked...

NEW FEATURES IN BETA 2


Quoting 
These features were requested by some users, and we listen to our users.

Some people were unhappy with the system font we chose for the DOM, and wanted to alter it. Menu “Text Size” in the DOM window was changed to “Select Font”, so you can customize all aspects of font display.

There was an extensive discussion about Open PnL from Interactive Brokers being slow to update. The reason was that we calculated Open PnL based on the distance from your current position to the best ask, or the best bid, depending on the position. Asks and bids in IB update less than trade values, which is why the PnL was slow to update, even though we consider it to be more realistic. There is now a new radio button in the Interactive Brokers settings, which lets you choose how to calculate Open PnL – based on the distance to trades, or to bestask/bestbids (latter option is the default).

Many customers had issues with filling out proper symbol settings for Zen-Fire and Rithmic symbols, because the current API did not provide a symbol lookup window. We heard the users, and made our own Symbol Lookup for Zen-Fire and Rithmic data providers. This feature smartly shows you the relevant contracts, and lets you add them with all proper settings in just a click.

In the DOM window, a Stop order would be placed if were in a long position and you clicked on best ask, or if you were in the short position and you clicked on best bid. Some traders wanted to place a limit order at that price level, to make sure they get that price. You can now click on best ask or best bid, and place a limit order instead of a stop.

Some nice additions for a beta. Particularly for Zen Fire / Rithmic users.

Hi, Multichart,

I trade Eur/Usd with MB Trading.

Just download MCDT. How far back is the historical tick data?

Can I send live trade from MCDT?

I ask because I used NT7 and MB Trading website claimed that I can access around 15 days worth of tick data but I can see less and not the claimed 15 days of tick data. I post at Ninja Support and they say its with MB Trading end . I ask MB Trading and they say they have problem with server and cant provide those 15 days of tick data.
