  1. Thanks for the report. Will be fixed in next beta.
  2. Access to Bitcoin Charting

    GDAX and Binance for now. Others will be added if their API permits. Working on making a Depth Chart (we like to call it Canyon Chart) in MT. Here's a sneak preview.
  3. Our subreddit

    I started a Medved Trade subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/MedvedTrader/ Feel free to post. And subscribe
  4. Our subreddit

    Problem with Discord (if I understand what Discord is) is that it is a live chat. We really don't have time to sit in the live chat, unfortunately. Someone has to program all these nifty new features.
  5. Timeframes issue

    ... and market holidays for it.
  6. Mix timeframe in formula

    I will have to think about how to do that. Thanks for the suggestion.
  7. Mix timeframe in formula

    No, not possible as it stands today. Basically it has a set of data it is working on (like a chart) and what you suggest would require two (or more) sets.
  8. Momentum scanner

    I thought it was not streaming (updated every second is "snapshot" not streaming) because you mentioned before you were using Yahoo.
  9. How to see more of my chart

    https://www.medvedtrader.com/trader/WebHelp/charts_axes.htm at the bottom, the Vertical Axis section. Easiest way - click and drag on the vertical axis to adjust. Right-click and choose "Dynamic" to return to normal. To add space on the right - click and drag on the horizontal axis.
  10. Momentum scanner

    That's good - but the source is not streaming MT only recalculates the scans when new data comes in. If new data comes in 10 times a second, that will eat up CPU. Of course, there are only a few stocks that are that liquid, so...
  11. Momentum scanner

    Here's the big problem with that idea: the stock data is shared among all windows in MT. That is why it is problematic to have two sources get data for the same symbol - it clashes. In the case you describe, the big port, after it creates the little port, will continue running the scans on the stocks in the little port if the little port is connected to a real time source, and any data that will come in big port will conflict with the data on the same symbol collected by the little port. But - what we *could* do is allow a button to create a portfolio or a watchlist from the results of a scan on another portfolio - manually. Then you could conceivably open a big portfolio/scan, run that preliminary scan on it, generate another portfolio from it, turn off/close the big portfolio and place whatever scan you want on the newly generated one.
  12. Momentum scanner

    merlin: that's a fairly intense scan - and you're running it on a lot of symbols. Can you tell me what your CPU and memory consumption is when you're running this (and with what feed?)
  13. Swing volume

    Actually, merlin, that indicator doesn't work right (yet, I guess) in MT. It is problematic because the zigzag indicator is backwards-changing. That is, if the current candle changes, the indicator may change to be different completely starting many candles back. So the weiss wave will change accordingly - not just on the last candle but on the last N candles where N can be big. Frankly, not only is it problematic to calculate (because MT really tries to calculate all indicators as state-machines), but it detracts quite a bit from its usefullness, if the indicator's overall shape may suddenly change not just for the current candle, but for the last N candles.
  14. Momentum scanner

    itsmadvil: note that the variables used in the code FIRST have to be defined in the top table for the advanced code. How to define these was explained in the comments in the code above: // Var Name: "BollingerBands_Top" contains Bollinger Bands(20,2).Top // Var Name: "PriceChannels_Top" contains Price Channels(20).Top // Var Name: "PriceChannels_Bottom" contains Price Channels(20).Bottom // Var Name: "BollingerBands_Bottom" contains Bollinger Bands(20,2).Bottom // Var Name: "VWAP_Line" contains VWAP (Intraday)().Line // Var Name: "PriceChannels_Center" contains Price Channels(20).Center // Var Name: "FibonacciPivots_Res1" contains Fibonacci Pivots (Intraday)(def).Res1 // Var Name: "RSI_Line" contains RSI(20,2).Line // Var Name: "CCI_Line" contains CCI(14).Line

    TD Ameritrade datafeed does not support Crypto Currency quotes. You would need to select a source that does. Assuming that you are tracking regular stocks at the same time, create a separate portfolio for just crypto currencies. Add #BTC.USD and any other crypt currencies you want to it. . Open it in a separate portfolio window (OPEN PORTFOLIO tile on the dashboard). Set that portfolio's quote source to be one of the crypto currency sites. All are free and do not require login. For example, you can use GDAX
  16. T3 Stoch

    It's the same as Full Stoch, but instead of the regular EMA it uses the T3 moving average formula to smooth the final line (the signal line is still EMA smoothed though). I'm not sure what you mean about not being able to use it in a Paintbar - the "T3 Stoch" is one of the indicators available.
  17. Swing volume

    I think Weis is using ATR, not percentages or points, for the ZigZag. I will add the ATR parameter to our ZigZag, then do your ZigZag Volume thing. As an aside - $500 for an indicator? Really? I'd be rolling in $.
  18. Swing volume

    Look at MT's "Zig Zag" indicator. Make sure the Zig Zag lines are turned on. Are those the same lines as in Weis' indicator? If so, I could make an indicator that would accumulate the volume for each zig zag line like in the indicator to which you linked.
  19. Add indicator on top off and oscillator?

    Here are the two paintbar files. Add these two underneath your RSI and link them together. One is for upper BB line, the other is for lower BB line. You can change the parameters in the paintbars to modify the Bollinger Bands. Make sure to make the paintbar widths minimal (2) and make the shape something like a triangle so that they don't interfere in drawing the lines. This is not the best or most elegant solution. Paintbars are really not fully suitable to create new indicators. But the custom indicator editor is not there yet. BBforRSI.PBExport
  20. Add indicator on top off and oscillator?

    If you mean bollinger bands that have the oscillator as an input - yes, it is possible to do with Advanced Paintbars. See https://www.medvedtrader.com/trader/WebHelp/advanced___enhancing_an_indica.htm For Bollinger Bands you'd have to basically calc the SMA and add/subtract mult*StDev If you are not a programmer that could be difficult. Later today I guess I can post detailed instructions on how to do that here.
  21. Grid Lines Customization

    It will be in next beta. In Chart Display settings.
  22. Grid Lines Customization

    Well making thick grid lines kinda defeats the purpose of grid lines. They should not be obtrusive. Will look into style setting.
  23. Support added for RITHMIC and POLONIEX

    tedd: what site's data? Are you referring to all candles on the daily charts or just the last? Most candles are shown just as they are returned. Last candle is built from intraday Open, High, Low and Last, which should be done using the 247 timeframe - that is UTC0 to UTC0. Could you send a chart and point out the issue on it? A bit of a background: as I mentioned before every crypto exchange has the bizarre method of showing change and volume on a rolling 24-hr basis. That is, if they show change of -10, that's 10 less than the value 24 hours ago, not 10 less than at the beginning of a session. That's because they don't have a concept of "sessions". Again, as I wrote before, that makes the volume and change variables completely useless to a trader. If it is "-10" from 24 hours ago 5 minutes ago and "-5" now, that doesn't give you a sense of the movement of the price, because it may have gone up now because it has gone down in the same 5 minutes 24 hours ago. I really don't understand why they all adopted this weirdness, my only explanation really is that the first exchanges were founded by amateurs who had no idea how these things are supposed to operate and the later-comers just copied it. We noticed that with every exchange, if we asked for daily candles, the resulting data came aggregating the days on UTC0 boundaries. So we made a "247" timeframe that goes UTC0 to UTC0, 7 days a week, and jumped through hoops to set up sessions for those exchanges so that the change you see is from the UTC0 that day, and so is the volume.
  24. Integration of Spotware brokers

    To clarify: how does this work? This company is not a broker themselves. It's a software company. I see that one of the brokers that they provide services for is Gains Capital. But Gains already has an API and we connect to it. Does this provide a different API for Gains? Also, from a quick glance at the API, they don't seem to provide streaming market data API at all. Correct?
  25. Access to Bitcoin Charting

    Hm. Please do a backfill, and when/if fails, go to the File/Help/Send Log/Settings to Support - and mention the problem.
