This stream auto-updates     

  1. Yesterday
  2. Though E*Trade re-enabled our access to the old API, we still need to update to the new one, and do so very soon. The latest beta is updated to the new API. I really need some feedback regarding a couple things from you if you have an E*Trade account: 1) make sure positions are showing OK. 2) Option trading - try it, make sure it works, transactions & positions show. Please get the beta at : https://medvedtrader.com/beta close MT and install that one over the existing. For now everything else should be the same. In the future, we will likely add some other features, such as conditional orders.
  3. this is a Windows 10 issue, not MT. One of the updates screwed that up. However, one of the subsequent updates fixed it. Check if there are further updates for your Windows setup
  4. When I minimize a chart it seems to be positioned on the Windows desktop, which is partially visible. I am unable to restore the window to original size or right click and move. Nothing happens when I click on the minimized window??
  5. with the new NEWS system we released, may be able to change that a bit. will look
  6. the way it works - MT populates the list of symbols with all "Stocks" in portfolios that have active quotes. It also adds whatever symbol you explicitly requested news for. So Index symbols do not get automatically added. Otherwise, that list gets very busy with symbols that never get news.
  7. I have $DJI, SPX.X, and $GSPC listed in my portfolio. If I right click any of them I do get the "News for..." option for them, and clicking on that option brings up the news window. However, only that one Indices symbol will be listed. I have to close the news window and then right click each of the others to see the news. Why are all three not listed in the news window?

    BACKFILL

    yes. 1) set the backfill source to "Smart Source" 2) Create separate portfolios for US and non-US stocks, and open the 2 portfolios in separate windows 3) Set the US Portfolio, set the quote source to IB. For the other, to Yahoo. Now when you backfill, MT will use the same source for the backfill as for the quotes on the given symbol.

    BACKFILL

    Hello, its possible to backfill live historical data simultaneously using Ineractive Brokers for USA Stocks and Yahoo for other country ? Thanks Mariano
  11. Chart pattern recognition tool on MT trader would be invaluable for traders. And perfect addition to your candlestick recognition, maybe added in a similar way. Basic technical analysis patterns... Identifying flags, wedges, channels, triangles, double triple top/bottom etc. and drawing those trendlines on the chart automatically. Also, a separate option that automatically draws trend lines that connect for support and resistance as it touches the level a second and third time, whether there is a full pattern or not. Would be great to see trend lines for support/ resistance for each chart as a forecast in my opinion. What do you think of this addition realistically?

    Multithreading?

    Excellent, thanks!
  13. MT is extremely multi-threaded. Every window is in its own thread, every streaming connection is at least 2, every chart at least 2 (1 for UI, 1 for background) and other stuff. So yes, if you have more cores, MT will use them

    Multithreading?

    How heavily multithreaded is MT? Would it help performance having a CPU with many cores?
  15. copy/paste may have been including whitespace
  16. I figured it out. Copy and paste works most of the time and I use that since I have long complicated passwords but once I entered the password manually I was able to get API access. Sorry for the hassle.
  17. I just used copy and paste so there shouldn't be any issues with the case.
  18. the password for the main site is the one that should be used. NOTE: it is case sensitive
  19. Well, my notification settings keep producing an audible sound as if you are replying to my posts but now even when I reload the page I can't see any responses.
  20. The password I have for the main site, which works for that, isn't accepted by the software for the API access. Forgot to add that.
  21. Well, I don't have a password for starting MT. I think I set it up to remember it or something. But I only have two passwords in my records. One for logging into the site to update my profile or change my payment plan and a separate one for the forums. I can't find any way to retrieve it from the software (even though it must have it since I start the software frequently).
  22. it is the same as the password to start MT or login to the main site. It is not the same as password to login here on the forums.
  23. Awesome! But I am trying to play with it now to see what I can do but can't activate the API feature in the software. I'm not sure how to get the Medved Trader Account Password needed. I would have thought it would have been the password I use to log in to the Medved Trader website here like to change which plan I'm subscribed to for example but it doesn't accept that.
  24. you can use the API for that https://www.medvedtrader.com/www/frontend/blog/HTTP-API#GetHistory If you request 1 min frequency, just the last couple min, the last row returned will be the "current" candle.
  25. Is there any way in MT that it can expose the high and low of the current candlestick? I work with scripts where it would be tremendously helpful to me if I could, with the script, read the high and low of the current candlestick so that they could be used for setting up orders with my hotkeys. There are multiple ways the script could access data but the simplest way would probably be if I could configure MT to display the high/low of the current candle in a chart in the window title bar. I work with multiple softwares and some of my strategies require quick order setup and utilize the high and low of the current candle.
  26. It would be helpful at some stage to have the option to show regular price alerts on the charts as when there are many alerts set and stock prices change rapidly it would be handy to see where alerts are set just by looking at the chart and not having to wade thru all alerts and numerically checking values.
