Portfolio Trader - data download and inconsistencies

Hi Traders,

Was trying at some point to get familiar with the way Multicharts is doing portfolio trading, and hit several roadblocks:

1) Set a simple chart w/ mov-avg cross-over signal generation. Try and set exactly the same setup: one symbol and similar backtest settings (such as lookback bars, etc), under a portfolio trader. Do you get similar results? I don't - the timelines (like first trade, number of traders, etc) are completely different.

2) Trying to use 30 symbols (say, members of DJI?) in a portfolio trader, set as minute charts, using Tradestation as data provider. Data download is taking 30min ... can take even more. Do you guys experience the same issue when using a different data provider? I cannot even thing of how would it work if you had 500 symbols in a strategy within portfolio trader.

3) How do you guys find MC's portfolio trader regarding complexity of coding? To me it's not too different from picking up how to do it in R / python ... which makes the hole point moot. I'd typically pick Multicharts as a choise if it would do portfolio trading easier ... if it has the same complexity, I'd rather stick with say, Matlab for example, where the sky is the limit. One thing I don't easily accept is telling me <you've hit a complex area of Multicharts where you might have to pay someone to do it for you > - it's supposed to be easier than R / python.
