Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

what i don't like in multicharts is that same instruments from different datafeeds have their own database...

Please forgive my ignorance, but could you please explain why this could be a problem?

I switched to multicharts from ninjatrader because:

1) in ninjatrader there are a lot of features that are incomplete in a way or another, while in multicharts what's implemented is almost complete. One example is IB financial advisor account support: in ninjatrader is missing, while in multicharts is complete. I asked several times NT support to implement this feature without success, and it is a very simple one to implement, just a couple of more parameters.

2) ninjatrader support standard answer for new feature requests is "we have put your request in the list for future consideration", while multicharts support often answers with "this feature will be implemented in the next beta release"... or so.

3) ninjatrader is more closed than multicharts: for example it's impossible to add an unsupported broker, while with multicharts every sort of integration is possible.
