    Actually, the centering is always automatic and just stops if you move the mouse over the window. In general you don't want stuff to be moving under the cursor when you are trying to click to place a trade. NOTE: double click on the LAST column does an immediate center. You don't have to click the button on top. I did just realize we don't have an option to set a keyboard shortcut for it. will check on that.

    If you missed it, I'd like to point to our convenient looping functions in Advanced code: https://www.medvedtrader.com/trader/WebHelp/index.html?advanced_looping_functions.htm From our support emails, it seems that paintbar users may not be aware of them. For example, if you have a variable SMA20 which is an SMA and you want to do something if it has been rising for the last 4 candles, all you have to do is call: All(4, SMA20 > SMA20[1]) // will return true for that condition. Don't have to use a for loop etc. or you want to check if the Close was above SMA20 in at least 5 out of 6 last candles... Count(6, Close>SMA20) >= 5 nice and simple.

    I knew it sounded familiar. That feature is in MT already. Switch the chart to Renko, then go to the View ribbon menu, Options button. First option is "Show Wicks".

    set as default - Yes, same thing. with TDA - there may not be enough data to track the tick for up/down.

    1) right click on the caption of the window and select "Set As Default" 2) # stands for # of orders. Only really relevant for Australian sources where we get a price, # of shares and a number indicating number of orders that make up those shares

    sure, just add $CASH symbol and enter the dollar amount into the quantity

    to check if the candle belongs to the current month, you do if (DateTime.UtcNow.Month == TimeStamp.Month && DateTime.UtcNow.Year == TimeStamp.Year)

    TD Ameritrade disabled the old login method on Friday. The 1.1.8900.1 version of MT or newer will work with the new login procedure. Old MT will not work. If you are using an old MT version, you will need to update MT in order to be able to login to TD Ameritrade. Please get the update at: https://medvedtrader.com/download Close MT and install this one over the existing setup.

    Any scan that you can express as references to certain symbol-specific parameters in MT is possible. Simple scans are a set of rules, evaluated one after the other. For example, if the rule is that price percent change change today is between 2 and 100, you can make two rules. 1. if SymbolData.ChangePercent < 2 return and 2. if SymbolData.ChangePercent > 100 return this way if it is between 2 and 100 it will go on to the 3rd rule - see an example rule here: 3rd rule could be - if Volume < 100000 return Note: this way you eliminate all unwanted symbols by doing "and Stop" rules. Then the last rule could be the positive one, for example if Close > 5 Set Color or Set Scan result etc... I thought our videos on scanning or paintbars were pretty clear... But any suggestions on how to make them better are welcome. Of course, if you want to switch the scan to Advanced mode, you would be able to just code the criteria in C#, combining as many of them in one if statement as you want and doing more sophisticated logic.

    Oh in case you wonder where the option is (and for those reading this) it is in the Settings. We added a "Search" in settings that allows you to find the setting by just typing a few letters of it in the search.

    Go to Files/Settings/News and near the top right of the window are 3 checkboxes, check the All Portfolios one.

    Anshu, I know of a bunch of people that use MT for very active day trading (200-500 trades a day) but those happen to be the guys that don't like posting about it Also, we are working on a number of features in MT to make it even more attractive for active trading. will be coming in the next few months.

    We've looked at that one and can't do it

    If you want to overlay and compare two paintbar lines and want to adjust scales, do it in an extra chart (above or below the main one). You can link two indicators to show on the same chart. The linked indicators are usually scaled so that they overlay each other. To do that, if the scales are similar, they do not change, but if they are dissimilar, they are adjusted.

    with single sessioninfo call: public void MainCalculation() { TradingSessionInfo session = GetTradingSessionInfo(Timestamp); TimeSpan TS = (Timestamp[0] - session.SessionStart); // number of minutes into session int p = (int) TS.TotalMinutes; // convert Timespan to integer if (DateTime.UtcNow<session.DayStart.AddDays(1)) // only plot current day { SetColor(Color.Black); SetYValue(Sum(p,TICK)); //plots a running total using the Sum loop function } } NOTE: this code assumes that the paintbar is running on 1 minute bars. Could be optimized, though that would complicate the code a bit.

    I would be interested very much in this as well.

    streaming sources need to be selected explicitly on each window. If bringing up new portfolio, it will use the last used one. for windows other than portfolio (Level II, etc) you can configure one, then right click on the caption and select the option to set as default

    add --- as a symbol (3 dashes). for named separators, just put the name after the 3 dashes. For example: ---FUTURES

    right now, no. but will be releasing new production version later tonight. After that update, the symbols will be @MNQM19 @MYMM19 @M2KM19 @MESM19 At least for IB.

    Ahh, add "Horizontal Line" Indicator. in the indicator properties, you can set it to either absolute value or to have it show the Open, High, Low, VWAP, etc . So you can select Open, then add another and select Low, etc.

    1) weeks to a month, though if you want, I can enable your account for it so you can see the work in progress. can place the orders. Just working on some field defaulting stuff. Works for both IB and TDA (and others) 2) you do not have to subscribe to IB for data. But if you do not, and wish to trade through IB, you will need to check a box in TWS API settings to bypass some API protection stuff. Otherwise, their system thinks that you are placing orders without knowing the latest data.

    It would be a big help to me to see liquidity in dollar amounts on the Level II window. My screenshot should make this plain. There looks to be plenty of real estate on the window, so I'm hoping you can do this for me. I track some ETFs that I have found may or may not be tradeable during pre-market hours. Depends on the liquidity available from the market makers. I always trade in terms of dollar amounts, don't really care about number of shares or price. My custom order entry code takes care of that for me. But to check liquidity, I have to pull up the calculator and do the calculation by hand. With a lot of ETFs, that's not really feasible as each one takes time. And if action is happening, I need to be able to act fast. So if you could multiply 2 numbers and add a 3rd column for me, that would be a great help. Only where I have the red rectangle. The individual entries below that are unnecessary. FWIW - I need this only for premarket, regular hours liquidity is not a problem. Thanks.

    That's an interesting twist on Renko charts. Will look.

    It's not really hidden - the paintbar is painted under it... you could change the color of either text or the paintbar, and it would show better. The problem with doing micro-customizations like that is that the options just multiply out of control and no one knows about them. What you can also do is make an "empty" paintbar - one that never has colors. Then place it on the chart showing as band on bottom before the other paintbar. Adjust its width to match the height of the text. That will push the next paintbar higher.

    Pattern detection could be a very good addition to the scanner. Ascending triangles, flags etc.

    Currently testing the scanner with the 1200 symbols subscription. The results are fantastic. I made some videos (without sound) to show the scanner running. Considering the cost (with about 25% discount applied for the datafeed) , its even better than Trade Ideas in some ways.

    You can do that now. Go to SETTINGS/CHARTS/GENERAL and UN-Check the box for "Annotations Unique per chart"
