    Trade XYZ Bug

    Okay I'm okay with how the accounts selection works, that really is a non-issue for me. But what is it going to take to get the shares held transferred from the portfolio cell over to the trade ticket cell? That's the one that has cost me $$ more than once.

    Trade XYZ Bug

    FYI...I just changed my default account in the setting and now when I open a trade ticket my first account is now listed in the dropdown box, whereas before my second account always was. So it seems it's the default account selected that always shows up in the dropdown box on the trade ticket.

    Trade XYZ Bug

    For all accounts only the "Use Portfolio Position" box is checked. The "Use Account Position" box is not checked for any account. I played with this yesterday and did check the "Use Account Position" box on all account while leaving the "Use Portfolio Position" boxes checked but it made no difference.

    Trade XYZ Bug

    Regardless of any row selected it is always the second account listed in the dropdown box on the trade ticket, which is also the default account I used to login to TDA for streaming quotes and news. In the above example it would be the account holding the 5,000 shares. But I have always had to select the correct account, all I'm looking for is for the trade ticket window to auto-fill the number of shares from the selected highlighted row, or even the row I right click to select "Trade XYZ".

    Trade XYZ Bug

    On my main portfolio window I have it separated into different accounts using the sub-total (- - -) feature. The problem I'm having is when I go to execute a trade (CTRL+T) of something I'm holding in more than one account. For example I might have 3,000 shares of XYZ in my first account, then below the sub-total line for that section I might have 5,000 shares of XYZ. The same symbol is listed on the 2 rows with the corresponding number of shares, price paid, commission, etc. information. Now if I highlight the second row with the 5,000 shares and hit CTRL+T the trade ticket window pops up with the 3,000 shares listed from the other row instead of the 5,000 shares from the row I have selected. Sometimes when I've had to execute a trade rather quickly this has caused my order to be rejected since the amount of shares doesn't match what I'm holding in the selected account.

    Why is it not imminent? We can't always be glued in front of our computer screens.

    Unopened Portfolios

    Bring back QT.

    Unopened Portfolios

    Well that seems kind of strange. The reason I don't leave portfolios opened and minimized is because I don't always need to view them and they take up space on the taskbar.

    Unopened Portfolios

    Is there a way to keep unopened portfolios up to date with quotes? Whenever I open a portfolio in the middle of the day I have to backfill it.

    Rows for Total and Sub-Total

    Sweet, that works perfect.

    Rows for Total and Sub-Total

    Sorry, I should've been more specific. How do I set the inline chart to display $Gain?

    How do I do that?

    Rows for Total and Sub-Total

    Yes I want it to track, I'm just looking for a way for the Total row not to get thrown off the chart each time I buy or sell something intraday. Kind of like what the spike filter does for a chart. I can use Sub-Total rows to track intraday trades, so I guess I'm really only trying to get the Total row to stay more in-line and not have to clear it every time a trade is made.

    If the tracking isn't for tracking the portfolio value, then what is it for?

    Rows for Total and Sub-Total

    I add them so I can track them intraday and I only use one portfolio.
