Thank you Mike.

True to word, as stated during their webinar, beta 5 is here.

Hey, does MC have a way to display quotes, like of one's stock ticker symbols, favorites that they follow / trade? I know it's not called MultiQuotes, but just wondering... By broker allows for 50 streamed quotes, and 10 charts (of different instruments). Would be nice to display them in an MC workspace, as opposed to opening another app or platform...

Yes, just add them to the scanner.

Fittingly, my 100th thanks given goes to Big Mike!

My interpretation of a "scanner" is different, so I had no opened it as of yet. Perfect.

MC is truly an impressive platform. Thanks much Mike.

I've been using it live since beta 2. There have been problems, but in each new beta they've solved every one that I have reported.

MCDT users, Beta 5 is not here yet. As I recall last time, it took a few more days, so probably next week...

Is it possible within MC to input a symbol once, and have it populate in more than one pre-existing chart?

I'm currently building-out a stock analysis workspace where I'd like to look at select stocks within multiple charts, such as daily charts (1 month, 9 months and 2 years) and and a couple different minute charts.

As an example, in ToS, I can have such charts set-up and saved, like a workspace in MC, and when I input a symbol, all of the charts are populated with that symbol's data. There is not a need to do so one at a time for each chart.

How is that accomplished in MC?

Hi TonyB,

If I understand what you want to achieve correctly, you can click on the 'I' on the charts to link them together. That way, when you change the symbol in one chart, all the other charts with the same linked colour also switch to that symbol. See attached image, which probably explains it better than I can in words.

Regards,

Hi guys,

I have just posted a bug/feature request about levels on Weekly and Daily charts being visible on for example minute charts.

Please read and vote if you think it is significant to you:

MultiCharts Project Management - Issue MC-470 - Fibonacci and Trendlines set with Weekly and Daily bars dissappear on ex. a 60min chart

Thanks,

Same here, BM is quite a guy I tell ya. He got me interested in trading CL, and than I've got the MC poison pills. After a month of experimenting with MC I've got so addicted, I had to buy an MC license... Well it is an excellent package with very good support! I have left with no choice!

So a Big Thanks Big Mike for all the work you do on this website!!!

Agreed on the MC support, even for us guys still on the free version.

atata - About how long ago did you get the license? I've been contemplating it off-and-on, but travel abroad and a newborn have put-off such serious consideration. Within MCDT, upgrading to the various Beta versions has been painless. Moving to a new computer was not quite as easy as I would have liked though. Was the move to the licensed version an easy one in that all of your settings, workspaces, etc carried-over fine?

Do you know (or anyone here) if there is a mkt profile indicator for MC yet? Gosh, if I asked before, my apologies...

Don't have experience with that, but perhaps you can look into this futures.io (formerly BMT) thread and there's also the same question on the MultiCharts forum.

Thank you again Jura. I recall reading one of those threads before, but not the other. It seems that MP is available for MC, but some seem to have issues with it though.

I've been wanting to incorporate MP into my paper-trading as it has been recommended in a book I'm reading...

Is there a way to move the countdown timer from it's location in the in the Y axis? It often is hard to see...

And, is there a way to see the session's P/L, not just the current one for outstanding positions?

Not that I'm aware of, but if you want to increase the visibility, you could also change the right margin and font size - though this also changes the numbers on the price scale (see attached screen).

That's something I also would like to see. Anyone knows how?

Jura, as always, thanks.

I didn't try it as of yet, but "sliding" or "stretching" the Y axis scale should help with visibility too. That however is not always desirable of course chart-wise...

I would really like a session P/L. I'll see if there is a PM request. I'd imagine that there must be...

You probably would need to write your own bartimer to move it on to the chart and off the axis. It will only be updated tick by tick if you do this, not second by second.

Maybe I missed the right link but I looked today again now that the final version is out for video helps, especially for the chart-trader function. But as far as I can see still no new videos there. I really want to use MC but this lack of support puts me off. NT has this part well covered. But.............I wait in hope:-)

It will only be updated tick by tick if you do this, not second by second.

Unless you use the new ReCalcLastBarAfter keyword. (Or is that for Signals only? Haven't tested it yet.)


Quoting 
Timer-Based Signal Execution

In MC6, your script only recalculated based on “events”, i.e. upon receiving new ticks. There was no way to make the script calculate if the symbol was not ticking. We introduced a keyword called “ReCalcLastBarAfter”, which forces your script to recalculate after a certain number of seconds. With this keyword you are no longer required to wait for a tick, and instead of waiting for the timeout as in Solution 1, you can simply force a recalculation, which can send your order after your bar is closed early.

Perhaps that's a possibility for you Tony? If you want, I can look at it this weekend.

gracepips, not sure what are you looking for however I've found new help stuff under Videos

Most of the new tutorial I've found is the left side under "Features" on the same page where you can find 27 different subjects explored.
Beside online you can try "live chat" which I've found extremely helpful so far however I did not have any basic "how to..." questions, so I am not sure how far they would go on providing that via live chat.
If you start to use MC actively you'll get hooked especially if you are trying to develop systems. However I've found it great for discretionary trading as well.

Thanks atata, I missed the info on chart trader in the feature section. I guess I'm less experienced than most of you guys so the step by step approach NT uses on their video helps suits me well. Though in all fairness the MCDT is free so I don't mean to complain........no I'm grateful.

One question though is the current MCDT download, since MC7 was released, the same as the full version except that I can't use custom indicators? So MCDT should be as stable as the new full MC7 version? Thanks again for your patience with me.........
