Minor heiken ashi Limitation of ChartDirector for Python

Minor heiken ashi Limitation of ChartDirector for Python

This was sent over the last few days regarding this Minor heiken ashi indicator:

(thanks to the person who sent this)

Here is the limitation

Thank you for your note. I am already a ChartDirector user. As a veteran Python programmer, I have noted a few irritating features in ChartDirector including the lack of a useful tool for Heiken Ashi candles. As a result, I have built my own SVG (scalable vector graphics) charting program for my personal use. I have sent my rather pedestrian Heiken Ashi code to ChartDirector for possible inclusion in the future. 
Additionally, ChartDirector’s geometry allows for slightly different spaces between candles but I have hopefully improved on that – see my screen grabs – particularly the bottom one (zoomed in).
None of this is very important to your algorithmic trading, but I thought I would mention my thoughts. I am a rather visual and intuitive pattern trader and good graphics are important to me.

I currently trade USD to Asians but want to trade simultaneously GBP and EUR to minor Asian currencies.

What system is best for tracking positions in multi currency? I currently trade USD to Asians but want to trade simultaneously GBP and EUR to minor Asian currencies.

Your question is a little vague: do you mean accounting/back office system? Front office (trading GUI) system? You haven’t told what tools you use to trade, and how you currently manage the trading risk, so it is difficult to answer your question with so little understanding of your situation.
