EDIT: After adding the Euro indexes with the Symbol Lookup feature they did work, so I guess I did something wrong. I guess this post could be deleted, but perhaps could be handy for other users.

Does someone know how I can add an Index with Interactive Brokers to MCDT?

I keep running into the following error:

 
Code
[05/10/2011 08:53:54] Connecting to real-time data for ESTX50 DTB IND USD  1 0 
[05/10/2011 08:53:55] Data request for ESTX50 DTB IND USD  1 0  1 Tick Trade [ 05/10/2011 06:43:54  -  05/10/2011 06:53:54 ] (Id= 1000001)
[05/10/2011 08:53:55] TWS error message: Id= 1000001; code= 200; description= No security definition has been found for the request
I receive this error when opening a chart with minute settings, even though the error log suggest that it's a tick chart. Perhaps I'm doing something wrong. Besides that, how can I tell to MCDT that the EuroStoxx 50 is an Euro currency based index, because according to the error log MultiCharts is searching for an USD index.

Btw, if I try to load an dollar index (such as the S&P 500), everything works fine:

Edit: this problem is solved; here you can find the how to:

I noticed some of posters in this thread connected MCDT to MB Trading. How did you do that? The best I get is an orange light when connecting, yet it never becomes green.

The Quote Manager shows no error (doesn't show anything regarding the MB Trading connection attempt). With googling I couldn't find the correct settings or a manual, and using the NinjaTrader manual as guidance for MultiCharts doesn't help very much. I did found that, in the past, an MB Trading Navigator was needed, yet I can't find that now (it seems to be replaced by MB Trading Desktop?).

Anyone can help me out?

It has not escaped us that there are virtually no training materials. We are working on this, and this week we should complete (and put on our website) current manuals on how to connect each data feed and each broker in the upcoming MC7 beta & MCDT. As a start these will be text instructions with screenshots, which will be a basis for instructional videos.

That would be great. Where can I find these manuals?

Regards,

(I have a quick question, should I open a new thread for this or not?)

How can I show a specific trade from the Portfolio Performance Report (MC6)? NinjaTrader has this functionality, and the image on the MultiCharts website suggests it is possible, yet I can't find it.

I think you need to backtest inside MC, and not Portfolio Backtester or whatever it is called, in order to see individual trades. Then it's on the View menu if I recall, like View Performance Report.

Hope MC DT will hit final soon. Really need MIT order type. Base on my demo so far, without MIT order from NT is causing me a lot of money.

NT promised MIT order over 5 years ago and still no sign of developing it.

There is a critical bug with MC 7 Beta4 and MB Trading.
MC submits wrong Take Profit and Stop Loss Prices when trading with EUR/USD ((Tested with Manual Trading). So if you're trading on real account, be careful and see whether you experience the same problem. I've reported it to MC team and they have confirmed it. Hope this will be fixed soon.

Thanks for the heads up, I was just about to setup my MBT account in MC7b4...
