Still, one very nice aspect @ MC is the way they opened product/feature management to their clients. Basically you have direct access to a link where feature requests or bugs can be logged and progress can be tracked. More than that, you can see what is the general interest for specific features and vote, and you get feedback.
It's so much better than sending emails into a "black box" email address.

I second that, indeed very appreciated, thanks MC. Wish everybody went this way, but who is first that one gets the cake

I like this approach as well. I am a professional programmer evaluating trading platforms. There appear to be limitations, gotcha's with all of the retail products in regards to backtesting and live trading. What I really need is just a good visualization platform that I can plug into. I'm wondering if NT can be used as just a visualization tool. An interesting thought considering there is a free version.

yes, strategy as standalone exe is something I rave about for a long time. And yes, backtesting always has issues. So far I think MC (maybe also quanta) is the best.

did lots of dev and backtesting in NT. Conclusion on NT - unstable (StrategyAnalizer may hang live charts), unreliable, inaccurate (no intrabar by tick backtesting,etc.), inconsistent (compilation/libs/.net/whatever, support sends problems to blackhole as if you are the only idiot who have them), incapable (nt should pay pension to gomi) in some critical areas. If I had mc.net at the time would save much time and patience.

I think MC is starting to get a little wiser:
  • Then the light bulb went on: "Hey! We need a free version like NinjaTrader has so that people will start using our product! Then maybe we'll get some more users to contribute free stuff and build a community so people will stop flocking to NinjaTrader!!"

yes, pretty unwise policy they had forcing developers to buy product just to be able to develop indicators for MC (MC locks up after 30 days evaluation period ). I suggested developer license to them or just provide time-unrestricted version without live trading capability the way NT does. This idea seemed incomprehensible to some MC guy during futures.io (formerly BMT) webinar. Looks like they got a little bit wiser, but not much

Hi Bibulous. Can you expand somewhat on what you mean with "not flexible enough"? And what are some of the things that NinjaTraders does better than MC .NET?

I'm asking to learn some of the important disadvantages of MC .NET in your view, to see if these are also important enough to me to use another platform alongside it.

Flexible was probably the wrong word - it is C# after all. It just is or "feels" more verbose. Too much objects, delegates wrapped around everything. Maybe I am exaggerating here, but I was really annoyed looking at it.. I look at it again with every new version, but it is still not for me...

Hi there,

I am just test driving MC .net these days and was wondering where to get additional indicators such as Donchian channel?
Support wants me to request it as an additional feature.
Maybe you guys have an idea or even the occasional study coded, sitting around somewhere ;-)

Cheers

The pre-built study call "Price_Channel" should do it.

You could also check this one: https://nexusfi.com/local_links_sort.php?catid=19&filter=&sort=d&page=1&pp=30&keyid=184 and adapt it for MC.net

Thanks a lot Porsche, that study sure is a beauty.

Yet, since I have no clue about coding, I will have to go the "goodwill"/pay route.
If you have any idea how to go about getting this done, let me know.

Have a nice WE

What's wrong with this one? I haven't tried it, to be honest.... [Edit:] Maybe because it's not .NET ...

https://nexusfi.com/download/multicharts/658-download.html?view

You *did* do a search -- at least on this site -- for a donchian channel indicator before posting your request, didn't you? If not, Google is your friend. As always.

You could start to get some clue with this one and the C# tutorials out there: https://www.multicharts.com/downloads/MultiCharts.NET-ProgrammingGuide-v1.0.pdf

To port an indicator from NT to MC.net, as both are C#, you in principle only have to change the NinjaScript part to PowerLanguage.Net. When the study uses pre-build functions you also might have to change these.

As you are new to coding the best way might be to start with the MC.net "Price_Channel.Indicator.CS" save it under a new name and start to modify it step by step until you get what you want, using the NT indicator for guidance.

However you should reflect how much time, money, or "goodwill credit" you like to spend on beautiful lines.

I've heard this before - "google is your frend" ... I don't necessarily agree with that - for the moment it looks like it's not your enemy, but considering how much stuff it is taking away from you each time you search, I would not call it a friend, but rather a "too dangerously close friend"

Going back to Multicharts - I like the platform, still I wish though they paid more attention to their competition and have some more nice features like:

MC-1317
Zig-Zag Cumulative Volume - Weis Wave for Wyckoff fans
MC-1354
eSignal feature - Linked charts (showing same instrument but different timescale) - such that trend lines drawn in one chart appears on all other linked charts.
MC-1316
Investor RT like - Volume Profile - Creating Composite profiles with mouse selection.
MC-1355
eSignal feature like - for linked charts - mouse cross pointer coordonates should show up on all linked charts. So, hovering your mouse un a chart, should show the verticat/horizontal lines on all the
MC-1310
Volume Profile integration with Playback
MC-1328
equivolume similar with photontrader, with dynamic bar-width space allocation
MC-1322
playback working with multiple charts of the same symbol

So, please don't forget to vote the features you want to see in next releases.
