Hi,

I have an strange issue with cumulative delta charts in multicharts.Net 9.1 SE. I use CQG as data feed, and insert an Futures MiniSP 500 Delta Chart in a workspace.

Then I have the option to see the cumulative delta chart as OHCL bar, candlestick or histogram. For some setups, I need to use the histogram, which is supposed to have a center 'zero' line, and then, the positive acumulated delta prints bars over the zero line, and negative accumulated delta prints bar below the zero line.

The problem is that my cumulative delta value is ALWAYS in values of -150000. So, a big up movement in delta, lets say a 40000 positive increment in cumulative delta, carries the cumulative delta to -110000. So, if I use the histogram mode, what I get is a repeated red bars with the same size (being such a big negative value, the zero line is completely out of the chart in the upper part, and if I adjust the scale to fit, the differences from one bar to another has to be MUCH significant for being able to spot in the graphic), so it makes histogram view completely useless.

Can anybody figure out what am I doing wrong?

Don't use this software, but try to search their help doc/guide to see if they have a delta change setting for the histogram. That will show the change in delta from previous bar to the current, that should at least make any scale issues less pronounced. Delta itself isn't usually on my chart as a histogram but instead just as bars, that's sufficient for me to track the overall value and shifts in general behaviour.

Hope that helps.

Sands.
