Financial software developer MultiCharts said on Tuesday it has released a new build (10.0 Beta 1) of its mono-branded multi-asset trading platform, which allows bulk data export for multiple symbols into ASCII format, which marks the numerical representation of a character. The developer has also introduced a new option to the Power Language Editor that allows the comparison of source codes upon importing a study with open source code.
MultiCharts has added a number of other enhancement to the platform. It said it intends to release a Beta 2 version in the near future, but provided no details as to what to expect. Following are some of the newly-added features of MultiCharts:
- Support for 4K resolution – In addition to Windows 10, the platform now supports 4K resolution and retina quality charting that allow the crisp and clear display of large objects with different dots per inch settings.
- New performance report metrics – the platform now displays annual return and annualized Sharpe ratio.
- Emulated Stop and Stop-Limit orders – users can switch between native and emulated Stop and Stop-Limit orders for both automated and manual trading. The feature requires real-time data subscription from brokers.
