  • Start/stop signal for Multicharts?

    I'm working on setting up an automated system and was looking for a signal that would allow me to set a start and stop time for the strategy. is there such an indicator for multicharts? Reason being is that if the system doesn't have a time it will include overnight activity even if I use the open outcry chart.

    thank you!

    If you right click on the charts you can choose an indicator and then you can choose signals. one of the signals is start and stop time for automated indicators. also set the chart for day time RTH only.
    ES will be under CME Equity open Outcry which runs from 8:30am to 4pm m-f play around with it and make sure it works. I have seen some youtube videos on AMP Multicharts automated statregies using chart indicators hope this helps

      Apex is correct. here are the links on how to use automated trading with MultiCharts and the start and stop times are in the signals section

        Let say in your strategy you will have defined inputs as:
        inputs:
        StartTime( 0900 ),
        EndTime( 1230 );

        So you need to run the strategy every day from 09:00 to 12:30.
        Than the simple code in your signal will work:
        If Time >= StartTime and Time <= EndTime then
        Begin
        //Insert here you main code to enter, exit positions.
        end;

        It is OK when StartTime < EndTime. But what to do if StartTime>EndTime? Like we need to run strategy from 21:00 to 07:00?
        The next code will cover both cases:
        bool EnableTrade = false;

        EnableTrade = false;

        If StartTime < EndTime then
        Begin
        If T >= StartTime and T <= EndTime then
        Begin
        EnableTrade = true ;
        End;
        End
        Else
        Begin
        If (T < StartTime and T > EndTime) = false then
        Begin
        EnableTrade = true ;
        End;
        End;

        if EnableTrade = true then
        Begin
        //Insert here you main code to enter, exit positions.
        end;
