  • Enhanced ASCII import capabilities
    Added Skip leading separators options to ASCII import dialog.

  • Real-time datafeed status reporting
    Improved status reporting of real-time data feeds, especially in case of connection problems and especially with regard to eSignal.

  • Improved auto-reconnect
    Improved auto-connect capabilities for several data feeds in case of connection problems.

  • Open/Save dialogs
    Updated all Open and Save dialogs to use the new common dialog style.

  • Chart|New Chart... dialog resizable
    The Chart|New chart... (Select Symbol) dialog is now resizable to make it easier to browse through long lists of symbols.

  • Improved automatic tick correction
    Improved the algorithm used to detect false ticks (mainly spikes).

Custom indicators:

  • Improved appearance
    The appearance  of (custom) indicator has been improved through the use of anti-aliasing (Windows Vista and Windows 7 only), resulting in smoother, less jagged lines.

  • Formula parameter type
    Formulas now have a new Formula parameter type which can be used to pass a specific Formula (function) as a parameter to another Formula (technically known as a delegate  in .NET).

    For example the pre-defined custom indicator MACD now has a parameter MA which can be set to either SMA or EMA by selecting these from a dropdown list of compatible formulas. Formerly indicators that need a formula argument needed to use a string parameter holding the name of the formula to use and corresponding if-statements in the indicator script code to select the appropriate formula. The resulting script code is much cleaner and easier to follow.

  • Custom Indicator (global) parameters
    To simplify dealing with indicators that use multiple Formulas which might share some values, custom indicator designers can now define parameters for the Indicator as a whole. The formulas in that indicator can refer to these Indicator 'global' parameters by selecting them from a dropdown box. Symbol Search screenshotSymbol Search screenshot
  • Indicator Import/Export buttons
    Indicators can now be imported and exported easily using dedicated Import and Export buttons

  • Ichimoku indicator
    The Ichimoku indicator has been added as a pre-defined custom indicator. Illustrates the use of the 'band' graph type introduced with version 9.2

  • Stochastic indicator
    Added Stochastic as a pre-defined custom indicator, illustrating the new Indicator (global) parameters feature. Still available as a non-scripted indicator as well.

  • Formula labels
    Each formula used in an indicator can now have its own  label which is used when displaying the Indicator in non-design mode and in the Data Window. For example the Alligator indicator uses three instances of the AlligatorComponent formula and with this version these instanced are named Jaw, Teeth and Lips instead of them all being referred to as AlligatorComponent.
    A formula label can also be made completley empty to prevent it from showing up in the Data Window. This is done for example in the RSI custom indicator which uses two ConstantValue formula's to display the signal lines at 30 and 70

*Data Window works with custom indicators (user or pre-defined) only. Legacy indicators will be phased out, future versions of ELWAVE will only be using the custom indicator engine. Almost all legacy indicators are now available as pre-defined custom indicators.
