    I mean it is only available for stocks trading on NASDAQ. IBM for example isn't going to show anything.

    Dear Jerry, one more thing that I do not really understand: when you say IQ feed Level 2 is NASDAQ only, what exactly does it mean ? Does that feed not cover all stocks, or does the feed not cover certain ECNs ? Or do you mean the feed is not available for futures ?

    Jerry, thank you very much for your support.

    I edited - IQFeed LEVEL II is NASDAQ only. Stockwatch Level II is fast, though not quite as quick as IQFeed. The difference is relatively minor - fraction of a sec

    Thank you very much for your feedback. So TDA feed is usually good, but can get stuck alot. IB level II data is bad via API. IQFeed is NASDAQ only. So basically all that remains is the Stockwatch feed ? Is it a good feed for someone who wants to do very quick scalps in stocks from the Level 2 ?

    IB Level I data is consolidated, but it is fast. not sure where you saw the "slow" thing. IB Level II is really bad because the data available in TWS is NOT the same data available to us via their API. You have 3 main options for data if Level II is required: IQFeed: https://medvedtrader.com/iqfeed - subscription Stockwatch: https://medvedtrader.com/stockwatch - subscription TD Ameritrade - brokerage account. TDA is good that may depend on what you trade. have seen it get stuck a lot with low priced symbols. IQFeed LEVEL II is NASDAQ only

    Hello Jerry, I have similar thoughts like antares66. I want to use IB as my broker, to clear my trades (only stocks). But I dont want to use their TWS for my order entry, and I would also prefer another feed because of all I read about it, that it is filtered and slow. If I use the IB data feed in the medved trader platform, will it still be as slow and filtered as in the TWS platform, or it only limited by/ in TWS ? Or will it still be that slow, even in medved trader (I talk mostly about Level 2 window here, charts are not that important to me) ? If you agree that IB is good as a broker, to clear my trades, but not that good with their data, which combo would you recommend ? Is the idea that antares66 mentioned above, IB as broker and TD Ameritrade as data feed a good choice, especially for Level 2 ? Or is there another data feed that you say is better/ the best to use with medved trader ? I am looking for the fastest and most reliable data feed I can get, while still sending my orders to IB and clearing through them. Thank you very much in advance for your support !

    Straddle pricing

    Will change.

    Straddle pricing

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is correct. Bid+Bid / Ask+Ask Guess not too many MT users using that feature 😊

    Straddle pricing

    Current logic: AAPL, Expiration Jan 18 Strike 155. Call: bid 0.77 ask 0.80 Put: bid 1.43 ask 1.47 Straddle bid: 2.24 ask 2.23 Straddle bid = call bid + put ask Straddle ask = call ask + put bid ================================== You're right, it may be incorrect. Straddle bid means selling a straddle, which means selling both a call and a put option? It should be call bid + put bid, since that is what you would need to pay to sell both right now. Conversely, the straddle ask would mean buying the straddle, which would be at ask on both sides. Is that correct?

    Straddle pricing

    just looked at the straddle bid/ask in the options chain looks screwy to me
  14. Thanks. It's working. 👍
  15. Worked perfectly. Thanks
  16. As an example for the indicators MACD (12,26,9) or PPO (12,26,9). How can I identify the cross of the 2 lines to give a buy or sell signal in a scan?
  17. in charts axis parameters add an option "Sliding Windows Size" in %. It should also be remembered at each MT launch. it allows to have graphics with always the same amplitude

    CFD code in MT with IB

    CFD code in MT with IB

    CFDs - that is one of the few securities that we do not support multiple PCs - sure, you can do that. in TWS API settings, specify the IP of the computer running MT as a"Trusted IP" in MT, go to SETTINGS / Data Sources/Setup accounts, click on Interactive Brokers and specify the TWS IP Address and port - the IP address of the computer running TWS and the PORT is the one specified in TWS API settings. Then go to SETTINGS / TRADING / ACCOUNTS, click on the Interactive Brokers entry and do the same thing there with the IP

    CFD code in MT with IB

    Another question I have 2 computers including 1 laptop. Is it possible to run a second MT session on my laptop and retrieve market data from the TWS that is running on my other computer? The 2 computers are on the same network. Sorry for my bad english.....

    High CPU usage

    no , that wasnt it . Did some debugging , seems to be related directly to the chart performance setting . Have to bring it down to below 50% to get decent cpu usage.
