MultiCharts now supports 4K resolution!

Retina quality charting is now available in MultiCharts. Windows 10 and 4K resolution gave us possibility to display large objects crisp and clear with different dots per inch settings. It took literally thousands of changes to make every graphic object readable and clear when using high screen resolutions.

Completely new design

MultiCharts inherits Windows 10 style so all the objects and icons have been re-designed and improved. The new icons of our platform have a flat look which is reminiscent of the design approach taken by recent version of Windows OS.

Emulated Stop and Stop-Limit orders

One can now switch between native and emulated Stop and Stop-Limit orders for both auto trading and manual trading. This feature requires real-time data subscription on your broker account.

Pause/Resume Optimization

Optimization Progress window now provides the ability to Pause/Resume the optimization procedure to free CPU resources.

Bulk ASCII Export

Quote Manager now has ability to export data for multiple symbols into ASCII format in one go.

1/10000000 Price Scale is now available

7 decimal places price precision is now available in the instrument settings to support the Japanese Yen futures and South Korean Won currency pairs trading.

Annual Return & Annualized Sharpe Ratio

Added new Performance Report metrics: Annual Return & Annualized Sharpe Ratio.

Improved position information when trading the same instrument on different exchanges.

The long-awaited Monte Carlo analysis is now available in MultiCharts!

Monte Carlo method is the method of statistical modeling in problem solving based on modeling a random process with parameters equal to the specific values of the original task. This method is used in various spheres (mathematics, physics, economics, sociology, etc.). MultiCharts as an analytical and trading platform allows the use of Monte Carlo method in addition to other existing tools (Backtesting, Optimization, Strategy Reports and others). Monte Carlo documentation is available in our Wiki section:http://www.multicharts.com/trading-software/index.php?title=Monte_Carlo_Analysis

Optimization Results window has been completely reworked.

The data is now represented in two formats: Spreadsheet and 2D graph. It is possible to copy the spreadsheet results to clipboard or save them into a CSV file. You can still view the results in 3D using our 3D Optimization Charts tool, as well as save the optimization results into ORS file for loading it later. Sorting options were also extended to provide more flexibility.
