Is MultiCharts 5.5 Trial Limited at all?

Hi folks,

Just downloaded MultiCharts 5.5 and am doing the trial for 30 whatever days or so.

Quite like it or at least many of its features though for the life of me, I cannot seem to get any more data coming through after I bring up 3 intraday charts and when I try call up a 4th chart, be it day chart, 5 min, 1 min nothing happens and there is nothing being presented data wise, although it shows the box with the called stock code etc, weird.

So as the title says, does anybody know if this is some sort of trial limitation or something?

Cheers in advance.

I would really recommend the 6.0 beta over 5.5. I've been using it for "production" (live) trading for months now. It is on beta 3, which is pretty high by MultiCharts standards, the final is due very soon.

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.

Thanks for that Mike.

I will download that one tomorrow as its getting late here now in Australia.

Still dont know why I can only get 3 charts up and no more, but I guess I will experiment tomorrow, but I am also wondering whether its got anything to do with Interactive Brokers.

The data sometimes seems to take a while to load, but yet if I use tools and charts on my account, its seems fast. Plus Im connected via ADSL at over 21MB modem sync and the data should be pounding through.

My firewall /ports /network / computer hardware are also optimised so I cant work this one out.

Sometimes its the same with ninja re- with some slight delays, or if your running more than a 6 charts or something.

How many charts, objects, whatever do you run consecutively Mike?

Cheers again.


add edit:

PS: would love to win the Multicharts subscrip, but need to put my creative cap on over the weekend unless a brain storm hits me prior :P

I believe IB has some sort of limitation on how much historical data you can load. But, IB and historical data.....ugh... not a good combo

I have six charts total, and the real-time scanner is watching about 30 stocks. I have a Core i7 920 overclocked to 4ghz, CPU averages around 8% during day.

MultiCharts is threaded per chart, so no issue if you have a quad core or better.
