Using Multicharts - suppose you wanted to have a strategy calculate at the end of a bar and then you wanted it to execute on the open manually the following day (using daily bars as an example here) - how would you see the signal after the close of the daily bar when the strategy has calculated so that you can execute on the open the following day?
Thanks in advance!

No ideas?
Maybe using the "print" somehow and looking at the log?

the print log could work or you could use "this bar Close" in your orders. When working on daily charts the orders would appear at the Close of the bar. When you'd trade this strategy live the entry would of course happen after the bar close i.e. in case of daily bars around next bars open.
That's why I'd usually wouldn't suggest using it for live trading, but in your case it might be a valid solution.
