Something weird happened yesterday to my Range Bar , using MC7 DT Beta 3.
See the picture...

I notice you are using IB. Probably a bad tick, their tick data is terrible.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Do you have any additional information on the TS independent Easylanguage editor - such as features, when it will be available, what it does? Thanks and look forward to hearing more about it.

One thing I've done is simply use UltraEdit (I've written up an EasyLanguage language recognition script for UltraEdit that color codes for you in this editor).

I'll try and dig up the .uew file I have that allows one to use this nice generic programming editor for EL programming.

Also, a nice side benefit of working this way is saving your files as text (e.g., *.el files) and then you can version control such files with your favorite version control system (e.g., I'm a big fan of Mercurial using BitBucket's free code repository service).

The renko bars in MC have the same issues as NT used to have (and may still have), namely they do not track and maintain the wick data when the bars are built. By definition, the renko bars are really high/low bars, and MC builds and draws them in this fashion. If you look in the data window, you will see that only two values are maintained vs OHLC. Tradestation does the same thing btw.

This lack of wick data, is why backtested strategies never pan out with renko.

Completely agree with you. Furthermore, they have gaps at the reversals too which is bad IMO (with renko that drives potential automated trading, I believe next bar's open should always start from prior bar's close - even for reversals - I know, not traditional renko, but I think its a better trading/realistic renko). This is why NT has an advantage over MC - it allows one to develop their own custom bar types and correct these flawed implementations of Renko with our own custom versions.

I'm catching up on the MC threads today and thinking about moving over to MC. But this one feature, allowing for custom bar types to be created by end user, would be a nice feature for MC to have - would help make it one of the very few trading platforms that has that powerful/advanced feature.

My attempt to import all NYSE, NASDAQ and AMEX stocks into MC has been a bit difficult. For some odd reason I cannot get the descriptions to take...

Is there an easy way to remove or delete all symbols with an exchange? My import into the NASDAQ exchange went awry and I'd like to delete all 2,833 stock entries, but don't see an easy way to make this happen. Thank you.

1) You can not get it better. This is a limitation with MC. I have suggested an independent adjustment for the spacing only to support, but my impression is that it is not on the high priority list. You could do a feature request. I'll vote for it The best I have come up with is bar spacing 4 or 8.

Laurus,

I have just entered this feature request in the MC PM database. I did it for MCDT since that is what I'm using--I suppose MC regular version has this limitation as well? Here is the link, please vote for it!

I imported dozens of them using the iqfeed symbol dictionary in quotemanager, everything worked as expected. You are using iqfeed?

As for deleting, can't you standard windows multi-select in QM and press delete? Ctrl-A or click the first one, scroll to bottom of list, and shift-click the last one?

Hi,

There seems to be all kinds of discussions/subjects under the one thread of "Multicharts, Multicharts............."
How about starting new threads for different Multichart topics.

It would make things so much easier to find. I.e. "Multicharts - Zenfire Discusssion" etc.

Neil.

Amen to that! While this thread is awesome, it is HUGE and really contains many different subjects within Multicharts. I vote we close it to new posts and allow for subjects/threads to flow within the Multicharts sub-forum -> we do have a section for Multicharts threads (MultiCharts - Big Mike's Trading Forum). So why not just create new threads when necessary instead of jumping onto this massive Multicharts, Multicharts, Multicharts... thread?

Its 18 pages long already and has taken me days to go from page 1 to almost near the last page on this thread, but much of what I read I would have skipped over if it had just been threaded a bit more than this thick cable

Cheers,

JD

Mike, multi-select works, but would take a long time for that many entries... I was not aware of cntrl A - and that did the trick! Thanks much.

When you imported symbols before, were you able to get the descriptions imported also? My feed is OEC, not iqfeed...

If anyone wants CSV files for NASDAQ, NYSE and AMEX, here you go:

Company List: NASDAQ, NYSE, & AMEX Companies - NASDAQ.com

And, if you have any luck getting the descriptions (company name) imported, feel free to let me know it's user error
