    Hi -- I've been a long-time Multicharts champion but, reluctantly, I have concluded that it's time to throw in the towel. Multicharts' bugs are now getting in the way of its functionality, and I can't afford these problems.

    Here's what I'm looking for in a charting platform:

    1) robustness/reliability
    2) relatively straightforward conversion of EL studies to whatever programming language the platform uses.
    3) ability to plot more than one fractal of non-based price bars on a single chart.
    4) ability to use DTN/IQ.

    That's it. I just need the thing to start up and run, reliably, day in and day out.

    Thanks for anyone's/everyone's input
  2. i believe ninja 7 can do all 4, but it's still beta . . .

    Thanks. Again, reliability is key. I'm wary of anything "beta"

    I'm using Multicharts demo. Have no problems. What kind of problems do you have?
  5. Take a look at Neoticker. You can write your own bar aggregation logic with it and plot whatever bars you want. Does also support IQ.

    I dont know about EL, but i suspect Neo has a different architecture. You can use a wide choice of programming languages, i.e. c#, c++, delphi, javascript, vbscript, what have you.

    Its also noteworthy that in my opinion Neo is generally speaking probably a bit more unfriendly to programming novices. Something like EL is definitely easier to pick up. On the plus side, its very flexible, and also robust (actively developed since ages). Its also a native win32 application - no .net shizzle or anything like that.

    Then I woke up........:mad:
