    MT Bracket Order Issue

    That isn't how the OCA orders work and most brokers require both sides to be the same. You can just enter a 2nd bracket order for the remainder of the shares with a high limit price

    Kraken for crypto

    though they do have an API, they only have snapshot data. No streaming. https://support.kraken.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000906063-Does-Kraken-offer-a-Live-Streaming-API-WebSocket- Though MT can work with a snapshot API, it is definitely not optimal, particularly when the snapshot API does not allow you to get quotes on multiple symbols at a time, and then also puts heavy limits on the # of requests that can be made. Right now we have other Crypto stuff on the todo list, as well as other projects. Once those are done, we will look at kraken again. Hopefully they will get the streaming API done by then

    High CPU usage in latest build

    Yes, it recreates the data file, so if the old one had a lot of empty space, it will be significantly compressed.

    instead of deleting, you can go to SETTINGS / CHARTS /GENERAL and check the box to consolidate on next startup

    Time and sales only

    can't do that. MT can have many charts, many portfolio windows. Doing that would be messy. Also, the scanner (if in MT) is a portfolio window itself so the symbol is there already.

    Raw data window itself is passive - does not subscribe to quotes. However, you can still get it to do it even without adding a symbol to the portfolio. To extend my suggestion above about linking portfolio and raw data window - open an intraday chart window. Link it with the same color as well. Now, when you enter a symbol on the raw data window, it will cause the chart window to change to that symbol as well. When it does that, the chart window will subscribe to the quotes and you will get updates in the raw data window :). This assumes you have the charts set to do active subscriptions, which is a default. If you don't need the chart, just minimize it.

    do you have MT excluded from the security software? If not, do so. If Windows Defender, then refer to https://medvedtrader.com/wd if other, let me know which If that does not fix, send me the logs.

    1) why do you need to add it in your broker's platform? 2) cannot do that. However, maybe slight change to the workflow for you would resolve the issue: Link the portfolio and Raw Data window with the same color symbol linking pin (upper left corner of each screen) when you need to add a symbol, just add it to the portfolio (just start typing). Then just click on the newly added symbol, or hit the UP button on the keyboard and that will also select the new row and switch the linked symbol

    Log in failure

    that login failure would be for whatever datafeed you are using, not for MT. Note that the failure can occur for reasons other than just bad password. Which datafeed are you using? I need to get the log file to see what the problem is. Please do the following: Go to FILE / HELP => Send Log/Settings to support menu (from Dashboard or Portfolio) And add the Post URL in the comment. Do not check any check-boxes.

    Can Medved display 5 decimal places?

    Yes. If you are not seeing that, go to SETTINGS / APPLICATION / GENERAL and change the PRICES format to be #,###,###,##0.00###

    Paintbars not sending notification or playing sound.

    Paintbar editor lets you define an alert, but whether or not it is used is determined where you actually add the paintbar to the chart or use it as a scan. That way, you can make it so the paintbar can trigger an alert, add it to 10 charts, but only enable the alert on 1.

    Jason, I replied to you on Friday via email. I think you don’t have the alert turned on. You setup the alert but you didn’t check the box to actually enable it. For example, in the picture below, note how I checked the box for the Bearish alert. Bullish one however is not checked and will not trigger. Note that the alert button on the parameter editor has a checkbox on it.

    Easier way to delete Alerts in the Alert window

    do you don't. you can just hit the delete key repeatedly.

    Easier way to delete Alerts in the Alert window

    how about just hitting the DELETE button above the list?

    got the log and settings. will get back to you a bit later today or tomorrow.

    Paintbars not sending notification or playing sound.

    ok, please send the log

    Paintbars not sending notification or playing sound.

    y, sounds like (no pun intended) you have it setup OK. BTW, on the alert screen where there is "Play Sound" checkbox, there is the dropdown to the right. Do you have one of the System ones selected or a custom sound? (which). And, to the far right, there is a play button (green right arrow). If you click it, it is supposed to play the selected sound. Does it?
  18. in that case, please do the steps above, starting with setting log level to 200
  19. Jerry Medved

    Paintbars not sending notification or playing sound.

    Sound - is Windows Media Player functioning OK? Alert (popup) - did you enable the alert on the Paintbar parameter screen? And note that the paintbar alerts will only trigger if the chart is open and the paintbar trigger event shows up on a new candle on the far right. If you just open a chart and the paintbar event is already on the chart, it will not trigger. If still an issue that you can't identify, then send me your log and settings: Go to FILE / HELP => Send Log/Settings to support menu (from Dashboard or Portfolio) And add the Post URL in the comment. Do not check any check-boxes. Also, indicate in the comment the exact paintbar and chart that I should look at.

    IB Bracket Order Support

    @bigt11 - Crypto is a whole different beast. Even if we implement it, we can only do it if the underlying broker/exchange supports it, and I don't think any crypto exchange does at this time

    it is on the todo list, but have not gotten to it yet.

    Holidays - Partial Day Add

    right. it is part of the auto update. that just means that you already got the update by the time you did the check, and just needed to restart
  23. Jerry Medved

    Holidays - Partial Day Add

    cannot modify system ones. you would have to copy the timeframe, then modify the copy, and select the copy on the chart. However, I just updated the holidays to add the half day- select FILE / HELP => Check for updates. get update, then restart
  24. May have found the problem. will send you an update.
  25. Please set MT logging level to 200 on bottom right of the dashboard window. Then, refresh the portfolio a few times. Wait a minute. Then send me the log again: Go to FILE / HELP => Send Log/Settings to support menu (from Dashboard or Portfolio) And add this post's URL in the comment. Do not check any check-boxes. Change the log level back to 10 after that.
